    Ep. 143: New Horizons Record Sales Numbers

    Ep. 143: New Horizons Record Sales Numbers

    Animal Crossing New Horizons has been dominating the sales charts. Nintendo has released its latest financial data and revealed that New Horizons is now the 2nd best selling Nintendo game on the Switch. That's right, in just 3 short months, New Horizons was able to surpass all other Switch games except for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We talk about those numbers and then take some questions from our listeners! After the Q&A, we close out the show with our Haken Islander Corner Question: What is something you do in real life because of Animal Crossing?

    Ep. 142: Fireworks Festival and Dream Suite

    This month, we've got some great new artwork for the show from Molly Pukes. We start the show by showing off the new art. From there, Nina has a story to tell us about the new villager who moved in. After that, we get deep into our experiences with the update so far. We discuss both the Fireworks Festival and the Dream Suite features that have been added to New Horizons. Finally, we end the show by asking our patrons what they think of the music in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

    Ep. 141: Our Favorite Things in Every Animal Crossing Game

    This week we have a big show for everybody. We start out by discussing the possibility of having minigames added to New Horizons in the future. After that, we go through every Animal Crossing game and talk about our favorite feature from each. We were only allowed to pick one so it was a tough challenge. Then, we get in deep with the rotating cast of special characters and discuss how we feel about each of them. Finally, we end the show by asking our patrons who their favorite unpopular character is.

    Ep. 140: What Fans Think of New Horizons

    On this week's episode of Haken: An Animal Crossing Podcast, we want to continue the conversation revolving around the current state of Animal Crossing New Horizons. This time, we've gathered some comments from listeners and read what they think of the game. Does it feel complete to them, or is it empty? From there, we make some predictions for the upcoming August Update in New Horizons. After that, we end the show by reading some answers on Haken's Islander Corner. This week, we ask them if they feel New Horizons is incomplete.

    Ep. 139: Is New Horizons Incomplete?

    Ep. 139: Is New Horizons Incomplete?

    People are feeling bored with Animal Crossing New Horizons. Many of those complaints stem from the current status of the game. While we have updates on the way, many players feel like these features should've been included in the base game. Sergio, Nina, and I discuss our feelings about the game and whether or not we find the game complete. After that, we discuss the possibility of restarting our islands and what circumstances would have to take place for that to happen. Finally, we end by asking our patrons what they would like to see for the next Animal Crossing movie.

*Please change the cover art each month I love seeing it but I don’t want to have to go to youtube to see it :(

I’m trying to get my hands on a switch so I can play New Horizons, and this is helping me get REALLY EXCITED!!! I’m so glad Nina is a co-host now. Thanks for such a good podcast.
Update: I finally got the game and it is really fun! Still love the podcast.

Makes My Morning Commute

Love all 3 of the hosts on this podcast. They are all so sweet and genuine, and my Tuesday morning commute to work would not be as complete or calming without them. Thank you!

Favorite ACNH podcast

This podcast is positive without being corny, funny, and lovely. Much like Animal Crossing itself.
