Animal Crossing Easter Event
Get yourself egged up for Bunny Day
Getting bored of spending your quarantine on your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island? You’re in luck, because tomorrow is Bunny Day (because lagomorphs are way fluffier than martyrs)!
That means a whole bunch of new furniture and clothes will be available – but only for the duration of the Bunny Day celebration, so act quick! The event starts on April 1st and lasts until April 12th.
Zipper T. Bunny will make a visit to your island tomorrow if you are running the latest version of the game. Make sure your time and date are set right, so you time skippers might want to get back on track – Bunny Day will only start when your system time says April 1st!
- Find all the hidden eggs on your island to discover who is hiding inside the bunny suit
- Eggs can be hidden in trees, at fishing spots or buried anywhere on the island
What’s in it for me? Eggs! Loads of them! If you’re into eggs (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love the lil’ things?), then you are in luck: Egg-themed table? Check! Archway made out of eggs? Got you covered! What other eggcellent decorations will be available? Go egg-hunting and find out!
Time For A Quick Daily Quiz?
What was the name of the first Mario game voiced by Charles Martinet?
- Super Mario 64
- Mario Party
- Mario’s Game Gallery
- Hotel Mario
Mario is a lot younger than he looks
Want to feel old? 35 years have passed since the first Mario game! It feels like it was only yesterday that Jumpman traversed those girders to rescue Pauline from Donkey Kong.
Back then, he was a carpenter rather than a plumber but clearly had some vocational training ahead of starring in his own game.
According to legend, Mario was named after Mario Segale, a property developer Nintendo rented a warehouse from. Mario and Luigi are known as the Mario bros since Mario is actually Mario’s last name, which suggests that Mario is named Mario Mario while Luigi is … Luigi Mario. Talk about living in your brother’s shadow!
The rotund, mustachio’d plumber might seem like an unlikely hero in his overalls, but his design is actually a clever way to make the most of early arcade and console games’ limited resolution.
Hair was hard to draw, so Mario got a cap. Same goes for a mouth, so a mustache covered it. The overalls helped separate his arms from the rest of his body without making the sprite overly detailed. A bit like how Mickey Mouse’s ears are always circles, no matter the angle.
Resident Evil for 2021
New Resident Evil game next year?
Dusk Golem, who has leaked details about upcoming Resident Evil games before, just posted a series of tweets about an unannounced title. Dusk Golem claims the game will release in 2021 and has been in development since late 2016. He also says the game will be announced shortly.
The most interesting part is in the final tweet, where Dusk Golem suggests a lot of people will be angered by the upcoming announcement, since the new game will be “by far the biggest departure the series has ever taken”.
- Rumour says the new game is reminiscent to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis – but not the remake
- The official announcement should follow shortly after the release of Resident Evil 3 Remake
What, me worry? The biggest change in the series so far must be the shift from third to first-person perspective in Resident Evil 7, which was more of a return to the series’ horror roots rather than a continuation of Resident Evil 4’s action-oriented take on the formula. Capcom has done a great job with the Resident Evil games lately, so let’s hope they keep it up!
