Introduction to Animal Crossing
Animal Crossing is a series of games developed by Nintendo and released by Nintendo. The first game in this series was released in 2001 and the latest game in this series was released in 2020. Apparently, this series of games is very popular.
The content of the game is very simple. All the player needs to do is to play a human role of a "village" and lives in an anthropomorphic animal village. In the village, players are neighbors and interact with many animal partners, participate in activities such as exchanging furniture, fishing, catching bugs, etc.
