“Animal Crossing” has been a huge success for Nintendo, and the Biden campaign is trying to earn its popularity by campaigning directly on the platform.
“Christian Crossing is a dynamic, diverse and powerful platform that brings communities from around the world together,” Christian Tom, director of digital partnerships for the Biden campaign, said in a statement. “Our campaign is an exciting new opportunity for Biden-Harris supporters to join and engage in building and decorating their islands.”
There are four yard signs available: a bidon-Harris logo, a team-only logo, a “same” “gaur logo” and an aviator’s image. Will share gameplay. “
It’s a unique partnership, but it’s not the first time a presidential candidate has used a video game to try and reach a vote.
Clinton also mentioned the app at a campaign rally. “I don’t know who created Pokemon Go, but I’ll try to figure out how to get Pokemon to vote.”
The Trump campaign is not currently giving hints of a yard in the game.
Samantha Zagger, the national press secretary for the Trump campaign, told CNN: “All this explains: Biden thinks he’s campaigning for the presidency of the Animal Crossing from his basement. “
Although Animal Crossing gamers have created custom designs in support of both Trump and Biden, it seems that there are dozens more designs with the search terms “MAGA” and “Trump” than “Biden”.
Not all of Trump’s custom designs ask for his choice, some are just memes of his likeness.
