New villagers, anyone? Capcom and 7-Eleven team up with Nintendo (again)

Posted by admin on July 25th, 2015

Goodish news, everyone! Animal Crossing is welcoming two new villagers, courtesy of Capcom and global convenience store, 7-Eleven. The two new characters, a horse and a cat, are called 7-Go and Felyne, respectively.

Set to appear in the imminent Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, the new animals are a result of Nintendo collaborations going back a few years. Avid New Leaf fans will no doubt be familiar with the elusive 7-Eleven furniture set, available from WiFi hotspots in the franchise’s Japanese stores. Similarly, this isn’t the first time Nintendo has teamed up with Capcom –  Isabelle and Resetti both appeared in Monster Hunter 4.

Those who have played the Monster Hunter games will recognise Felyne as just that – one of the crazy race of comedic cats that inhabit that world. 7-Go, on the other hand, is a completely new creation. Details are scarce at the moment, but it would appear that the two characters will turn up with specific design challenges and themed furniture for the player. No doubt the corporate equestrian will be requesterin’ a grocery store (Nook won’t be happy…!). Unfortunately, it would appear that 7-Go, like the furniture before him/her, is currently another Japan exclusive. All together now: “Booooooo!”
