If you’re a fan of the Animal Crossing series, chances are you’ve drawn the ire of Mr. Resetti at one point or another.
Resetti, the series’ resident “reset button” police, is known for angrily confronting players after resetting their games without saving. It doesn’t matter if the player does this intentionally (to escape a fuckup) or accidentally. Resetti – like death, taxes, and Thanos – is inevitable.
Unfortunately, another inevitability has hit Mr. Resetti recently, unemployment. In an interview with Mashable, New Horizons’ project lead Aya Kyogoku indeed confirmed that Mr. Resetti would be out on the street. The Reset Surveillance Center has been shut down in response to the series’ new auto-save function, so Resetti will have nobody to unleash his fury on any longer.
Kyogoku went on to say that he thinks Resetti’s layoff will be “a positive thing for the player” because New Horizons takes care of save duties for you. Perhaps this will allow Mr. Resetti to rest easy at night, knowing that players can’t help but have their games saved during every session.
One thing Kyogoku did mention, was that Mr. Resetti is still looking for new work, so perhaps we’ll see him around town (or on island) after all… Hopefully he’s got a piña colada in hand, and is relaxing those lungs on a hammock somewhere. God knows he needs it.
We at Wicked Good Gaming Global HQ wish Mr. Resetti the absolute best in whatever the future holds for him.
