Microsoft Store Is Selling Fake Animal Crossing: New Horizons For Only $2.99

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a massive hit on Nintendo Switch, and that success has inspired a blatant rip-off now available on Xbox! While some developers might be content to offer a game with a slightly altered title, HugoStudioLab went with the exact same name with its offering on the Microsoft Store. This version of “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” is actually much closer to Crossy Road, complete with five different animals for players to choose from. As of this writing, the game is still available on the Microsoft Store where it can be acquired for $2.99. The listing can be found right here.

The “totally real” Animal Crossing: New Horizons has ‘HugoStudioLab’ listed as the developer, and has shared a description that reads, “An animal farm has let its animals escape. Help them to cross the road without being run over.”

It will be interesting to see how long the game remains available for sale! Nintendo is fiercely protective of its intellectual property, and the fake game isn’t just using the same name; the listing on Microsoft’s store has the same logo and even a picture of Tom Nook! It seems like a safe bet that this listing somehow slipped under Microsoft’s radar, and probably won’t be long for this world, as a result.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Animal Crossing franchise, but no game in the series has managed to find the level of commercial success of New Horizons. The Switch game released last March, and it quickly provided gamers some much-needed escapism during the coronavirus pandemic. Fans have been sharing their creations all over social media since the game released, which has likely inspired more players to pick it up (and possibly purchase this fake game, too). Those unfamiliar with the series and its exclusivity to Nintendo consoles are a prime target for this kind of deception. Hopefully, very few people have been tricked!

Nintendo confirms new features on the way for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We bring really interesting statements related to one of the most prominent video games in the Nintendo Switch catalog. It is indeed Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The following message was shared by the president of Nintendo of America, Doug Bowser. With these words, they have confirmed that they plan more news for the title for the future.

When asked why the game was not at E3 2021, this is what he said:

While we didn’t talk about this [during the Nintendo Direct at E3 2021], we absolutely have plans to make sure that the 33 million people who have islands have new and fun activities to participate in. Stay tuned for what’s on the way.

While this doesn’t constitute an announcement, and there’s no telling what he meant by that, it gives Animal Crossing players the chance to breathe

The phrase “new and fun activities” is key here. Bowser could be hinting at something big, but at the very least, it’s something Animal Crossing players haven’t seen before.

There is a lot of speculation as to what those activities could be, but for now, Animal Crossing players will need to be patient. On the bright side, Nintendo heard the cries and answered them. The future of Animal Crossing is bright.
