E3 2021 was poised to be one of the biggest events of 2021 for gaming, especially for the giants of the industry. Companies like Xbox, Bethesda, and many more made a killing by showcasing their premier products for the year 2021. Japanese developers Nintendo arrived on the last day with an E3 exclusive Direct. Fans had a lot of expectations, especially for existing titles like Animal Crossing New Horizons.

However, the developers never rose to the expectations that fans set. The Direct never revealed much about the future of many of their existing titles and the New Horizons community were visibly disappointed with the event. But, it seems like the developers haven’t forgotten them at all.

It remains to be seen how the game will be affected following the arrival of these updates later this year. Fans haven’t gained a lot of new content this year so far, and they want to see some revolutionary changes. So, the developers at Nintendo should have a torrid time satisfying the fans, and it will be hard for them to impress the players after a shabby first half of the year.
