Animal Crossing: New Horizons only just launched worldwide last Friday, but we already have our first in-game wedding. When a couple's wedding plans were cancelled due to the coronavirus, their friends stepped in to lend a hand.
The in-game Animal Crossing wedding apparently came as a complete surprise to the couple, in the post below. We should probably mention that this isn't an actual in-game mechanic. Unlike how two players can get married in Final Fantasy 14, for example, there isn't a dedicated marriage system in New Horizons (but I really wish there was after this).
Nonetheless, it's still a charming sight to behold. Animal Crossing is meant to be the ultimate "pure" game, and this is being acknowledged by someone who is entering the series with New Horizons as their very first Animal Crossing game.
I've only just stepped into the world of Animal Crossing for the first time this weekend, and it's already been incredible. Hopping over to your friends' islands and seeing how they've laid out and designed everything is wonderful. I was even gifted a wonderful yukata to wear by USgamer's own Jake Green!
Looking to the immediate future of New Horizons, there's an in-game Easter event that kicks off on April 1. Remember there's no skipping forward to in-game events by manipulating the system clock of your Switch. Even if you do skip ahead, any upcoming events still won't activate for you ahead of their official start date.
