Time to shell out those bells, ARGonauts! David is joined again by Candice Shane as well as returning guest Taylor Lyles of The Verge to talk about the Animal Crossing franchise. We cover its humble beginnings as a Japan-only N64 title ported to GameCube, how it brings in a wide demographic of gamers, and the mental health benefits it brings.

We kick off the news on a couple of coronavirus related stories with E3 2020 canceled and the TurboGrafx-16 Mini delayed indefinitely. That's followed by former Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime looking to save GameStop, the Nintendo PlayStation auction coming to an end, and Panzer Dragoon going VR.

The Stage of History celebrates Animal Crossing with a deep dive into the game that started it all. And don't forget to nab our game code giveaway for Azure Saga: Pathfinder for Switch!
