Animal Crossing New Horizons Will Have Microtransactions. Please God Don’t Do This to Me

Eurogamer: According to its ESRB rating, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will contain in-game purchases. As spotted by our friends at VGC, the game’s ESRB rating – which you can read at the bottom of the New Horizon’s page on Nintendo’s official website – is included on the game’s store page, but has yet to be published in full on the ESRB’s own website.

Listen. After Pocket Camp, everyone knew this was going to be the case. I knew this was inevitable but I was just hoping there was a sliver of hope of no microtransactions. And it’s not because I think that these in-game purchases will be anything ground breaking, or necessary to enjoy the game. It’s probably for costumes and clothes, and sick furniture for your beach house. Flex items. It’s more that everyone is going to talk shit about Game of the Year 2020 and I’m going to have to fight tooth and nail with the internet day in and day out. It sounds exhausting already, but god gives his hardest tasks to his toughest soldiers.

So here I am. Tying my boots, tightening up my helmet, and preparing to go to bat against all the Twitter eggs and dare to disrespect the future best game of all time.
