Animal Talking is the name of the (probably) first in-game talk show and takes place in the very well-equipped studio of a screenwriter, just in his basement in Animal Crossing.
Since real talk shows are not an option at the moment, screenwriter Garry Whitta (Star Wars: Rogue One, Book of Eli) simply decided to host such an entertainment show in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The studio in its basement has everything a professional talk show needs: there are cameras, lights, a desk for the host, a couch for the guests and of course a studio tape.
The pilot episode featured actress and presenter Naomi Kyle. The next visitor that Whitta wishes for is Elijah Wood, who likes to visit other players to trade beets.
So I built a talk show set in my #AnimalCrossing basement and today’s pilot episode of ANIMAL TALKING with special guest @NaomiKyle and bandleader @nickervision what a huge hit! Stay tuned for much more. Musical guests! Stand-up comedy! Dare we dream of @elijahwood on the couch? pic.twitter.com/SPEsKylHrK
