We are only 5 days away from Animal Crossing: New Horizons release date. But it seems the fans can’t wait for March 20. They have started a petition on Change.org. Over 1600 fans have signed.
As we have reported that the physical copies of Animal Crossing: New Horizons will not be released on March 20 in Spain. There are many countries where the physical copies will not be released on the game’s release day due to Coronavirus.
In these circumstances, the fans want Nintendo to release New Horizons early due to the coronavirus.
Brad G, the man who stared petition says
Nintendo should release Animal Crossing ahead of its scheduled March 20, 2020 release date. Due to the mounting concerns over the coronavirus, there is no better time for Nintendo to release Animal Crossing for the world to enjoy.
Over the last few days, we’ve seen bold measures to attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). With large gatherings of people being discouraged by our leaders and lawmakers, we’ve seen serious responses from countries to reduce international travel as a means of preventing the spread of the virus. In America alone, sports leagues like the NBA, NHL, MLB, as well large festivals like SXSW and Coachella, have postponed operations while experts do their best to develop effective means of testing, treating, and stunting the spread of the virus that has caused the world to pause and take caution. In an unprecedented move, the Walt Disney Company has even decided to cease operations within their theme parks, a move that has come as a shock from a company who is known for its reputation of remaining open through all manner of disasters and panic.
I encourage Nintendo to listen to the desires of the people, their loyal fans, who would appreciate the gesture of releasing Animal Crossing ahead of its scheduled release date, because now, more than we can comprehend, we could all benefit from that feeling of community and creativity that Animal Crossing can provide.
Keep in mind, Nintendo of America has advised its employees to work from home due to Coronavirus. As we reported, An employee at Nintendo of America tested positive for COVID-19. The employees who were in touch with that employee also tested positive for Coronavirus.
In these Situations, Nintendo of America advised its employees to work from home.
