Animal Crossing: New Horizons has finally been released on Nintendo Switch, and eagle-eyed fans have already spotted a small queer reference in the game.
In a clip from the game posted to Twitter, a character called Merry gushes about her love of comics and romantic comedies and references a princess whose “true love” is another princess.
“Romantic comedies! Ohmigosh, I didn’t know anybody else read those comics but me!” Merry says.
“My favourite’s about the shred-tastic Princess of Rocketboarding and her true love, the Princess of Explosions! They search the world for each other, but HILARIOUS stuff always keeps them from happiness!”
She continues: “Like, one time, a wizard swapped their minds! So they were together… but also further apart than ever! Eventually they fooled the wizard a bunch and got their own brains back. It was hilarious AND romantic!”
