ANIMAL CROSSING’S FIRST EVER ‘LIVE VIRTUAL PARTY,’ ON NINTENTALK ISLAND
Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum artist Tove Lo has conquered the multiverse with Sunshine Kitty, her fourth studio album via Island Records, and now brings her unpredictable nature to the gaming industry. In the midst of the ongoing worldwide shutdown, Animal Crossing emerged as a pop-culture phenomenon becoming the best-selling Nintendo Switch title. On Saturday, July 18th, Tove lent her Animal Crossing avatar to their first ever ‘live virtual party’ to DJ on (YouTube influencer) Nintentalk Island.
“It was so cool to be part of the first show in Animal Crossing! I got real hooked on this game while in quarantine, the world is so charming and magical. And while being starved of interaction with my fans and show jitters this was such a great thing to do! I’m so impressed and grateful to Nintentalk for helping make this happen! And my fans made the coolest outfits and an awesome stage!” – Tove Lo
“This concert was a wacky experiment that resulted in a memorable time for everyone involved. The response that I received let me know that a virtual concert in a time like this is exactly what everyone needed.”– Nintentalk
