Fool me once…
I should’ve learned my lesson after the King K. Rool fake-out for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but here I am typing swear words in Slack while being strung along by today’s Nintendo Direct. Nintendo very clearly built up a new Animal Crossing game only for Isabelle to announce her arrival in Smash.

I fell for it. Again!
Thankfully, we can have our cake and eat it too. Nintendo is making a mainline Animal Crossing for Switch next year. If the teasers are anything to go by, it’s going to look absolutely bangin’.
