Animal Crossing remains one of my absolutely favorite Nintendo franchises. I was in for the original on the GameCube from day one, and I’ve put at least 50 hours (at least!) into each entry since. I think I’m somewhere near 200 with Animal Crossing: New Leaf on my Nintendo 3DS.

With all of that said, there’s a lot I did not know in this latest episode of “Did You Know Gaming.” They cover the entire Animal Crossing franchise, including the silly and not very good Happy Home Designer offshoot.

It’s a brilliant episode, so take 10 minutes and enjoy it.

We have to see an Animal Crossing on the Nintendo Switch, right?

I’ve loved all of the main Animal Crossing games, but the ability to take New Leaf with me wherever I go on my 3DS was wonderful. Can you imagine an Animal Crossing that marries the big screen relaxation with portable accessibility that the Nintendo Switch offers? Nintendo has to do this, don’t they?
