A fake Animal Crossing: New Horizons listing is on the Microsoft Store, still hasn't been removed

Nintendo and Microsoft have been pretty buddy-buddy lately, but just about anyone in the world would be able to tell you that Nintendo wouldn't just slip one of their best-selling first-party Nintendo Switch exclusives onto PC without so much as a word. Which is why the fact that Animal Crossing: New Horizons appearing on the Microsoft Store is so baffling. Using the official logo, name, and boxart of the official Nintendo game, this fake listing tries to imitate Animal Crossing's latest release. It even has an ESRB rating--E10+--and is available on mobile and HoloLens of all platforms.

Should you check "Animal Crossing: New Horizons"'s description, you'll find that it's even weirder: you need to help escaped farm animals cross a street to safety--definitely not typical Animal Crossing fare. Screenshots add to the entire bootlegged appearance by being ones for Crossy Animal Road, ripping off Crossy Road, yet another game, in the process. Coming from HugoStudioLab, you can get the game for just $2.99, but you'd be best off not supporting a weird mish-mash of stolen properties. Perhaps the most confusing part of all this is that Microsoft allowed the game onto their platform in the first place, and in the past four days of it being released, it still remains, without having been taken down.

To be fair, it sounds like this game makes better (and more literal) use of the title than Nintendo does. :D

You know, I figured since it's clearly ripping of Nintendo's title, I'd just report it. Since more reports would mean it would get Microsoft's attention. But I can't do that. Their report feature literally doesn't work. lol

And if it plays just like ACNH it's just a coincidence.

I mean Microsoft bought Rare like 20 years ago so they own Donkey Kong and all kindas shit.

The Microsoft game store is freaking terrible for Windows. The Xbox stuff is actually not that bad but the Windows games... most are trash.
