‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ features a wearable bag
March 20th’s well-anticipated playful life and community simulation “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” will include a wealth of customizations including some paper bag headwear.
Nintendo enthusiast and freelance writer Daan Koopman trying out “New Horizons” as part of a pre-release preview event spotted the Paper Bag item when looking around an in-game shop.
Priced up at 140 Bells, a modest amount of in-game currency quite affordable in comparison to more luxurious choices—ball gowns, sun hats, wraparound sunglasses—the grocery bag covers a player’s head, with eye holes for their wide, cartoon-style peepers.
Paper bags worn over the head usually connote a hidden identity, shame or embarrassment.
In “Animal Crossing” games, players are represented by a caricatured human avatar, mingling freely and without question among a population of adorable, anthropomorphic animals.
“Animal Crossing: New Horizons” also introduces an enhanced multiplayer element, with up to eight players rubbing shoulders and building a community on the same virtual getaway island.
The March 20 release is particularly well anticipated and could become Nintendo’s biggest launch this side of the Holiday 2020 season. CL /ra
