Game Developers Conference organizers are excited to announce that GDC 2020 attendees will have the opportunity to learn, firsthand, how Nintendo developed Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Switch!

Nintendo's Animal Crossing games are acclaimed for their characters, charm, and engrossing design, which is why it's so exciting that the GDC 2020 Design track will host an hour-long session on "Creating a New Horizon: Bringing Animal Crossing to Nintendo Switch."

How is this a bad thing again?

I'm guessing that the save backup thing is why it's getting downvoted.

Like I get it that it's a bummer that you can't back up your save data (for now) but dismissing the entire game and calling it garbage just because of one flaw is just really stupid.

Just goes to show you that trolling will never stop.

And besides, Nintendo said that save backup would be provided. The issue here is that the backup can only be done once. But I'm sure that Nintendo will eventually do an update that allows multiple times just like the 3ds system transfer.
