    Animal.

    Despite being shrouded in secrecy for an extended period of time, so much so that some fans thought the project might have been abandoned, Nintendo unveiled a new Animal Crossing game for the Switch at their E3 conference this year. Shortly afterwards, in an interview by Mashable, the director and lead of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons team Aya Kyogoku stated that, unlike the series' previous entries, the upcoming title will feature an autosave function. But there's a catch: to achieve this, sacrifices had to be made, as a beloved character had to get laid off work. In their interview, Aya Kyogoku further rehearses:

    Yes, Mr.Resetti, the short-tempered mole who has been around since the franchise's very first entry, won't be there to yell at you in case you accidentally reset your console without saving due to the game's new mechanic. However, not all hope is lost for what is effectively one of the series' mascots, as Aya Kyogoku hinted he may find a different role in New Horizons:
    Seemingly, some YouTubers, game critics and streamers have responded to this unfortunate event that befell Mr.Resseti. In a recent Twitter post, YouTuber TrailerDrake says:

    That's good, if the game crashes randomly at least not all would be lost if something like this occurred.

    That's the whole point of this.

    Same here, autosaves are a nifty feature a game can have, for as long as you have the option to turn them off if you don't need them.

    Autosaves came at a great cost indeed.

    Honestly, I'd prefer if they made autosave an option. This is because I dislike to take a regrettable direction in-game then not be able to undo it.

    now, given that this is a game still in development there's a chance that auto save could be optional.
    True to that,making a dumb decision and whatnot, and being unable to revert it its enough to discourage me to keep playing the game onwards.

    Given the type of game it is, I think autosaves are pretty good. If you screw up you screw up, you have to deal with it. Even without autosave I usually kept the mistakes I made, the game becomes more interesting that way.

    But having Mr Resetti yell at me was one of my favourite bits!
