The United States presidential election is coming up. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. But just in case you haven’t, video games are coming to remind you. Kinda Funny Games has announced it will host the first public showing of Biden Island, a custom-built Animal Crossing: New Horizons island created to promote the candidacy of Democrat Joe Biden.
Host Greg Miller made the announcement via Twitter. He said that Biden Island will debut on the Kinda Funny Twitch channel on Friday, October 16 at 11 AM PT / 2 AM ET. This is in partnership with Biden’s presidential campaign, so expect to see plenty of campaign material.
This isn’t the first time the Biden campaign has promoted itself through Animal Crossing. In September, the campaign released Animal Crossing yard signs. These appeared to be modeled after real-life yard signs, a mainstay of presidential campaigns, albeit simplified for the smaller design space. And unlike your real neighbors, your Animal Crossing residents probably won’t steal them.

In a follow-up tweet, Miller jokingly(?) suggested that the team should “swing by” the island of US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez afterward. AOC got in on Animal Crossing way back in May, and invited players to send her Dodo codes for a visit.
