Gender in Animal Crossing: New Horizons confirmed and fans are unhappy

Nintendo add option to choose between two genders in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the entire community is up in arms about it.

Up until now Animal Crossing has never had an option to customise the player, you simply played the The Villager. But now you choose between two genders and people aren’t happy.

NEWS: Overwatch animated series coming to Netflix.

Animal Crossing World today confirmed that the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons has plenty of customisation options including race, hair, full face, and even face paint.

However, the Animal Crossing community seem to be very divided on these new features with many taking aim at the game’s gender option.

Villager from Animal Crossing in Smash Bros

Gender in Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch confirmed only two genders.

While most people think it is a pointless feature because they just want to play as the Villager (or player), who is now a fighter in the latest Smash Bros, others are emotionally distraught that there are only two genders to choose from.

One person vented that the female gender optioned showed a ponytail.

Other people believe that, especially, in game like Animal Crossing: New Horizons that gender doesn’t matter and the character is not supposed to represent the player.
