The National VideoGame Museum Seeking Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2020 Stories
The National Videogame Museum is seeking submissions from players of their Animal Crossing: New Horizons stories. The submissions will be part of “The Animal Crossing Diaries” project.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released in March 2020, during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many countries were closed to visitors, businesses were restricting access, and many were forced to stay home from work or school.

For some, Animal Crossing: New Horizons provided a getaway for players who wanted to connect with others from a beloved franchise virtually. The National VideoGame Museum wants to record the diverse ways that players have been enjoying the game.
The experiences include everyday moments where a calm moment is needed, connecting with friends virtually, or celebrating special events from the safety of home. The project plans to archive and analyze the submitted memories experienced through Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Players interested in sharing their stories can access the submission form on the National VideoGame Museum website.
The museum is welcoming a wide variety of submissions. They include diary entries about the game, a personal experience about playing the game, a video tour of the island or screenshots, commentary about events that have been held on the island, or a phone-recorded video talking about playing the game.
Players can also submit comic strips or other artwork showing something that happened on their island. The artwork must be the player’s own work and not taken from another artist. Players can also submit copies or screenshots of their Animal Crossing group chat but must have all participants’ permission.
These are only a few examples of the content that players can submit. If players want to submit a more complex story, they can contact the museum through email.
On the form page, players will need to agree to deposit conditions before submitting their files. From there, they will need to fill out the form with their name, email address, and a file. Only one file is accepted at one time. Players can submit a zipped file with their story plus related images.
For many, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has served as a way to connect with others. Even businesses have created custom artwork, clothing designs, or islands to connect with customers and fans.
It’s unknown how long the National VideoGame Museum will accept entries for the project. Those who want to share their stories should submit their files as soon as possible.

Nintendo And LEGO Super Mario Announces New Sets Are Coming Next Year
Nintendo and LEGO have announced a new lineup of Super Mario toys are coming in the future. The first set of toys were initially launched this past Summer. The toys combined the lovable Super Mario characters plus some animated and sound effect features.
A new video from the company has revealed some of the upcoming toys. The content was in Japanese but is expected to launch outside of the country, similar to the initial launch. The new toys are expected to be released in January.
Seven new lineups will be added to the Super Mario LEGO set. The first set that Nintendo introduced was a “Course Master” challenge. The special set contains new features that will change up the gameplay, even with the previously released Super Mario LEGO sets.
Custom Machines are customizable pieces. Players can decide to use a custom item block or time block that is included with the set. The customizable items allow players more freedom in how they create their courses. Maybe one block contains a poisonous mushroom that scares their opponent or a big bonus if players make it to the end of the course.

A new bright yellow pipe will be added to the set. Set Mario on the pipe, and a 30-second countdown will begin. Players can create more time-sensitive courses. But, Mario may have the chance to collect more time if he makes it past certain obstacles.
Three expansion sets were announced and share the theme of “Poison Swamp” in the jungle. The sets can be enjoyed alone or combined together to create a large swamp for Mario to run through.
Additional enemies will be added that can be combined with other sets. New enemies include Piranha Plants, Chain Chomp, Wiggler, plus the floating Koopa Paratrooper.
New character packs include ten additional characters as well. They include Spiny Cheep Cheep, Foo, Ninji, Propeller Shy Guy, Poison Mushroom, Huckit Crab, Parabeetle, Paragoomba, Thimphu, and Bone Goomba. The enemy character packs are random, so there’s a chance of receiving a duplicate enemy.
Mario also receives additional costumes as part of the “Power-Up Pack.” Mario will gain new abilities depending on what costume he wears. They include Penguin Mario and Raccoon Mario.
The new lineup of LEGO Super Mario toys is expected to launch in early January.
