Nintendo's been on quite the news run lately, both with tremendous successes (Animal Crossing sells 26M units!) as well as at least a few things in the other column (long running Smash Bros tournament shut down in midst of pandemic; streaming bans).
So it seems only fitting that the video game giant has now combined the two, in yet another instance where the language of a blog post appears to offer some comfort to video game users and streamers, while perhaps not delivering quite what it says on the tin.
What does Nintendo have to say about business, politics, and Animal Crossing specifically?
Let's dive in.
New Horizons meet old...in Virtual Legality.
