US presidential candidate Joe Biden is debuting his own island on the hit Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The former vice president’s campaign is teaming up with Kinda Funny Games to premiere the digital project, which will be streamed on the Kinda Funny Games Twitch channel on at 7pm BST on Friday, 16 October.
Animal Crossing is a social simulation franchise in which players are able to live among a village of cute, anthropomorphic animals.
New Horizons, released earlier this year, gave players the ability to customise the islands on which their avatars live.
Other players can then visit your island via the game’s online multiplayer mode. Further details about the design and contents of the Biden island are as yet unknown.
Brie Larson, Maisie Williams, Elijah Wood, Danny Trejo, Stephen Fry and chef Guy Fieri are just some of the other celebrities to have made known their devotion to the game.
