Star-studded Thursday at the Animal Crossing talk show

Animal Crossing has become an immensely popular community experience and is a simple, perfect stress buster. Because of this, it has grown a rather large celebrity fan following. Brie Larson, the main guest of next Thursday’s episode, is a huge fan of the game herself. The Captain Marvel actor tweeted once that she changes her clothes in-game more than she does in real life. She even did an Animal Crossing gameplay Q&A on her YouTube channel yesterday.

Along with this, we have popular Twitch Streamer and voice actor Cassandra “Friskk” and of course, live music by Kenny Fong! Now that’s a lineup we do not want to miss.

To be honest it does not look like we will be able to see large gatherings anytime soon, given the current situation. As we are seeing more and more events taking place virtually, we realize that virtual platforms have gained importance like never before. Be it Twitch, or YouTube, or in-game shows and events.

We have seen this happen on Fortnite (remember the Travis Scott concert?), and who knows, this might be the future for concerts and other performance events as well.
