Here’s a question we’ve never asked ourselves before: What would happen if Chevrolet and Animal Crossing collaborated on Corvette-themed downloadable content? It might sound like a farce, but this question is officially answered, as Chevrolet just announced a Corvette-themed pack for the popular sim game, and it’s actually pretty neat.
In case you’re unfamiliar with what Animal Crossing even is, here’s the gist. In the video game world of Animal Crossing, users play a character that mirrors themselves (or whoever else they’d like to be). Players live in a simulated world—either a small village or a small island—where the goal is to prosper. The avatars grow plants, buy and sell goods, and build a home for themselves (among many, many other options). The home is where Chevy has focused its theme pack.
Download the pack, and your character’s crib is suddenly outfitted with loads of Chevrolet gear. There are Corvette-themed shirts, a carpet with the Corvette logo, Corvette-inspired posters, and even a bed that resembles the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year. While Chevy’s Animal Crossing DLC may not be for you, it could be right up the alley of your kids or other loved ones—provided they play Animal Crossing and love the Chevrolet Corvette.
That said, it’s hard to overstate the popularity of Animal Crossing. While the franchise has been around for almost 20 years, its interest has ballooned. According to some estimates, more than 11 million play the franchises’ newest title Animal Crossing: New Horizons—and it’s only been out since March. The download is available right now, and it’s free. So why not fly your Chevy flag? Virtually, of course.
