What’s the hottest Nintendo topic on Twitter in Japan today? It’s a super wholesome letter reply from Nintendo about Animal Crossing: New Horizons in Japanese to a young fan!
A parent recently wrote on Twitter about how their daughter has been asking them if Animal Crossing: New Horizons is released yet every single day since the new year began.
So her daughter actually wrote a letter including an Animal Crossing illustration and sent it in the mail to Nintendo. Naturally, they weren’t expecting to receive a reply back but that’s exactly what happened!
Only about a week later, a letter reply was sent back from Nintendo with a lovely set of Animal Crossing character art decorated on the bottom of the paper.
A very rough translation of the letter reply from Nintendo reveals a thank you for both the initial letter and illustration, an agreement that they are looking forward to the release, an ask for patience until it is, and finally that Nintendo wishes to make a game that everyone can enjoy!
It’s so lovely to see that even in this day and age, Nintendo still writes back letter mail replies sometimes, especially to children. And let’s be real, we’re all thinking exactly the same as this Japanese child was — we want New Horizons now!
This letter has been absolutely blowing up on Japanese Twitter too with more than 125,000 likes in less than 24 hours at the time of writing this article. I guess we’re going to see a wave of fans writing letters to Nintendo now hoping for similar replies, aren’t we?
