In a recent interview Bowser explained, “While we didn’t talk about it [during the E3 Nintendo Direct], we absolutely have plans going forward to ensure the 33 million people who have islands out there have new and fun activities to engage with. Look for more to come.”

Naturally, players were having huge expectations from Nintendo but not hearing a single word in the entire presentation made them worried about whether the game is now dead. However, after hearing such a statement players can finally feel assured. The developers will still focus on ACNH and we will see more updates soon.

New Horizons is one of the biggest on Nintendo Switch and developers wouldn’t like to lose such a sizeable community from their hands. However, developers should know that actions speak louder than words and should try to act like that soon. Many veterans are already complaining about the lack of content in the game and are also quitting the game.

Thus, Nintendo is in a very tough spot as it is not able to fulfill players’ demands. The developers have to introduce some big updates containing museum upgrades or introducing new villagers from previous titles soon. Indeed, a proper statement regarding the game’s future has lightened up many player’s moods. Regardless, developers should try to act according to their words and satisfy users’ needs beforehand.
