Presidential nominee Joe Biden has his own Animal Crossing: New Horizons island

Come for the museum and the weather, stay for the malarkey

As a US presidential hopeful, you want to make sure you have your message spread to as many corners of the country as possible. This is likely the reason why Democratic nominee Joe Biden has an island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which will be toured by Kinda Funny Games today, October 16th, at 2:00 p.m. EDT in a special Twitch livestream.

What awaits on Biden Island isn’t immediately clear, but it isn’t the first time that politics and the title have made bedfellows, as readers will recall that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez briefly toured several players’ islands herself. We also have to note that there’s been a Selena Gomez concert, a talk show filmed from the game’s environs, and even a recreated IKEA catalogue, so this really isn’t too far from the game’s norm. What we can assume is that there will be no phallic fireworks.
