Isabelle From Animal Crossing Is Going to Be in Smash Bros and People Can’t Deal
Nintendo just shattered a million hearts and then like, immediately put them back together in what was the greatest collective emotional roller-coaster felt by gamers since Walugi’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate exclusion (and no, we’re STILL not over it). It all went down at the end of Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, when Nintendo teased Animal Crossing character Isabelle for a brief moment and naturally, fans went apesh*t, thinking it was the Animal Crossing announcement they’d been waiting for. But Nintendo pulled the rug out from under us all, announcing instead that Isabelle would be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
It’s not that Isabelle’s presence in Smash wasn’t an exciting prospect. It’s just that Nintendo crushed our hopes that they were announcing a whole new Animal Crossing game. And it f*cking hurt, man…
Until it didn’t? Because minutes later, Animal Crossing character Tom Nook announced that there actually IS a new Animal Crossing game coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019.
PHEW. Now that we can all sigh a collective sigh of relief and get off this zippy AF emotional roller-coaster, let’s look at all the funny reactions to Nintendo’s big Isabelle Smash announcement… and their deliciously mean Animal Crossing troll.
