Like many individuals around the globe, I am at the moment obsessive about the peaceable and cosy world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons – however even I’ve to confess there are many issues that bug me. Particularly, the way in which Animal Crossing’s UI and menus work, which frequently make easy chores really feel like an entire drag. To not point out the a number of strains of dialogue required to get something executed. I am you, Orville.
Summarising these points and the way they might be solved, YouTuber Nick Ha has produced his personal model of a Nintendo Direct centered on quality-of-life modifications for Animal Crossing. With the assistance of some voice actors and critical quantities of modifying, the video offers a surprisingly real looking visualisation of the modifications followers have been asking for. Why craft separately when you may craft in stacks? Why not have crafting benches inside your own home linked to your storage? There’s even a suggestion for easy methods to pace up Orville’s infinite nattering.
It is unlikely we’ll see these modifications really carried out by Nintendo post-release, sadly, however I assume it is good to dream about what may have been. If something, the glut of neighborhood solutions reveals the significance of getting UI design proper in video games. For which I can solely give New Horizons a C+.
