Nippon Columbia has announced a new veterinarian-styled game “Wan Nyan Doubutsu Byouin: Pet o Tasukeru Daiji-na Oshigoto”, or  ‘Woof Meow Animal Hospital: An Important Job to Help Pets’ in English. The game will launch in Japan on July 2nd for 4,800 yen. Here’s an overview of the title thanks to Gematsu, collected from Nippon Columbia. We’ve also added screenshots below:

Mojang has announced a free map available to players on all platforms. The map will have both an Adventure and Survival mode compatibility. Players can download the Spring-themed new addition on the Minecraft marketplace. Take a look at an overview of the new map from the Minecraft website below:

Spring is here! And what better way to celebrate than to kick winter’s butt once and for all?

In this bundle from The Misfit Society and Pathway Studios, you enter a frozen world where winter has overstayed its welcome – and it shows. The crops are dead, the wells are frozen, and even once-gentle animals are turning hostile. But what is there to do? It’s not like you can control the weather… or can you? As the village scientist/wizard and all-around crackpot, you’ve invented the Spring-a-majig, a contraption that brings spring to any area you point it at. Use it to bring nature back to life!

EA has officially started updating its websites with a June 2020 launch window for Burnout Paradise Remastered. The game will be available for pre-order on the Nintendo Switch eShop beginning on April 23rd, 2020. You can see our previous coverage of the title, including the overview and trailer here.

News outlet Bloomberg has reported that the import of copies of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have now been banned in China. With the Coronavirus lockdown in full swing, the game has been a welcome way to socialize with other people amid the harsh rules on staying home and social distancing. While there isn’t an official guideline on why the sale of the game has been banned, it is likely due to the political statements circulating by players online.

Retailer Alibaba’s e-commerce platform Taobao have received instructions to stop the import of the game entirely, impacting not just the software, but all physical merchandise related to the franchise as well. In a statement on Twitter, avid democracy campaigner, Joshua Wong, said he was playing the game and that the movement had shifted online. Here’s another direct statement from Wong:

“Animal Crossing is a place without political censorship so it is a good place to continue our fight.”

While an official release of the game has not gone live in China, imported copies do have an option for Chinese text. If the game is to ever be localized, it’s incredibly likely that creative features like the pattern editor will be removed from the Chinese version. Political slogans aside, Chinese players seem to have really fallen for Animal Crossing’s easygoing social aspects, with Switch hardware sales seeming to be spurred on by the title.
