Darren’s Animal Crossing Memory Walk

I first heard about the Animal Crossing franchise from the original Nintendo Official Magazine (NOM) in the UK, which was advertising the GameCube Animal Crossing title. The series didn’t initially interest me, and it wasn’t until a friend of mine showed me his American copy of Animal Crossing: Wild World on his DS Lite, that my attention for the series piqued. There was just something appealing about the idea of a chilled and relaxed game, where you collect fish and bugs and play with friends in person and online. At the time, the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection was still quite new, and I loved the idea of playing with friends across the world.

Departing Memories of Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Only days remain until the departure gate opens for Animal Crossing New Horizons. Not too long until we move away from our lovely towns from our fabulous neighbours. We have many fond memories of turning over a New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS, so we are taking this opportunity to tell them before our New Horizons induced self isolation.

Check them out after the break!

Our Hopes, Desires, and Dreams for Breath of the Wild 2

Exactly three years ago, Nintendo revolutionised the Zelda franchise with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and merely two years later, they teased fans with a deliciously dark trailer for its sequel. Not much is known, other than the fact that it could possibly even be darker than its predecessor… maybe more so than Majora’s Mask.

The problem with leaving devoted fans in the dark for so long is that, after a while, they’ll start coming up with their own amazing theories for what the next game will entail, most of which is fuelled by their own desires and what little information they may have. That’s just what we are going to do, theorise what we believe Breath of the Wild 2 (or Breath of the Twild) could have in store when it launches… most of which based purely on what we think could be improved.

Sit back and relax with a nice cup of pumpkin soup as we take you through our hopes, desires, and dreams for Breath of the Twild!

Re-enter the Twild!
