Joe Biden Debuts Animal Crossing Island, Declares “No Malarkey” to Visitors – Hollywood Reporter

The official Biden island was shown in a Twitch stream on Friday, hosted by Kinda Funny Games and screenwriter Gary Whitta.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden has entered the bubbly world of Animal Crossing, Nintendo’s popular simulation video game.

The official Biden Island was shown via a Dream Code visit — which allows one to visit an island to take pictures and enjoy the scenery, but not interact with anything — in a stream on Friday hosted by Kinda Funny Games on its Twitch channel, with Greg Miller and Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta discussing what they look for in a promotional island.

“A lot of them strike me as a bit cynical and money grabbing, but this one is obviously a special case in the service of a very good cause,” said Whitta, who is the mind behind the Animal Talking YouTube series. A suited and aviator-wearing Biden was shown in the Twitch stream, declaring “No malarkey” to visitors, with a custom design portal positioned in the main square to design different outfits — including a Biden/Harris t-shirt.

Miller noted in the stream that Biden’s love of ice cream, trains and America as a whole, was incorporated into the island. “Team Jo” signs were prominently positioned, along with the option of viewing an array of Biden and Harris-themed merchandise.
