French Edition 20 Minutes had the opportunity to interview Animal Crossing: New Horizons Developer Aya Kyogoku about Nintendo Switch's popular video game. Kyogoku told the site that the team always wanted to make sure that when they launched the new Animal Crossing game they wanted to create the best breed they could carry at that time. Kyogoku also said they wanted to keep the "memories and love" and nostalgia of the old titles in the franchise and put them in new form.
“With each development (cycle), we always want to make sure that the most recent entry is the best game. Such was the case with the New Leaf and is still in New York. But everyone, especially the fans, has their favorite game (in the series). I believe it's part of the radio to have long running structures like Animal Crossing – players talk about the difference, from one game to another. We don't want to ruin their memories and love for the old games – we always remember that, we really want them to keep the memories they had while living in different Animal Crossing games, and the games and events of their lives that they went through while playing. ”
