People on Twitter are obsessing over the animal farm game by Nintendo Switch to keep boredom at bay during self-isolation at homes amid the coronavirus outbreak. Animal Crossing is basically a series of games that allow players to live and survive in the village world. During the start of the game, the players get given an interest-free mortgage with a lax payment schedule to expand their home and upscale amenities. Animal Crossing, a feature in the game, allows the users to capture animals to survive when the city closes at night, much like the recent lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.
