This lovingly stop motion animated fan teaser trailer for an Animal Crossing talk show will make you wish it was the real thing.
Gabriel Salas, a freelance 3D generalist, posted a fan teaser trailer for an Animal Crossing TV series that him and his team created. The video, done in gorgeously impressive stop motion animation, stars fan favorite villager Isabelle as she goes around her set taking care of errands before starting the show:
So happy to finally share this! What started as a shower thought evolved into a full blown animation project.

It’s such a cute trailer, not only animated beautifully but chock full of the charm that the franchise is known for, and I hope to see more from Salas and his team in the future.
Since Nintendo’s last financial update, the title has sold 3.64 million units, cementing itself as second place in the top 10 best selling Switch games. It’s now closed the gap on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with New Horizons now heading into its first holiday season.
According to Twitter data during the first half of 2020 New Horizons was the most talked about game on Twitter globally, with Fate/Grand Order coming in second after being the most talked-about game in 2019. The previous free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons was back in April and it brought a host of changes such as new villagers to the island, added some fun seasonal events, and opened up a new wing in the museum. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was recently featured in the Financial Times, an actual real life publication, after some severe in-game interest rate cuts from Tom Nook.
In Japan alone Animal Crossing on Switch previously sold more than 1.88 million copies as of March 23th. The title released worldwide on March 20th, which means it managed to sell 1.88 million physical copies in Japan in only three days. And overall the game’s Nintendo Switch debut sold 11.77 million units between its March 20th launch and the March 31st, placing it seventh among the console’s highest-selling titles. In barely four months, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become Japan’s second best selling game ever.
