The people who were once disinterested in gaming are coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The life simulation game attracts Stephanie Cheng, a 27-year-old software engineer at a San Francisco solar start-up.

In an interview with CNN, the software engineer speaks about this game and her experience with other games. she said she never used to like video games. She grew up playing the classic arcade game ‘Snake’ on a Nokia phone. Fortunately, her boyfriend works in gaming.

“Any time I would play, I never really got hooked into it. I would always get bored very quickly,” said Cheng.


That changed with “Animal Crossing.” She bought her own Switch Lite and a copy of the game after trying it out on her boyfriend’s Switch.


“I thought it was really fun. I really like to organize things and manage things… You can control every aspect of your island so I found that compelling,” Cheng said. “And it’s really cute, compared to other video games I’ve played.”

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released on March 20. The game has sold over 3.7 million physical copies in Japan. Furthermore, New Horizons has outsold Nintendo Switch game Pokemon Sword/Shield and Masahiro Sakurai’s work Smash Bros. Ultimate in Japan.

As we reported earlier, Animal Crossing: New Horizons sold more digital units in just a month than any other game(Every console) in History.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
