The Microsoft store is selling a very cheap version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The claim took off on social media in late April and early May 2021.
Misbar’s investigation found that the game being sold on the Microsoft Store is not Animal Crossing or any kind of official Nintendo game.
Nintendeal posted a tweet about the fake game on April 30, 2021.
Although the game cover art is taken from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, according to those who have purchased it, the game is more like Frogger than Animal Crossing. The actual game is only available on Nintendo products and costs around $50.
