Animal Crossing has become quite popular in several companies and organizations. IKEA, in particular, has just created its 2021 furniture catalog featuring the game’s characters.
For months now, Animal Crossing is getting more attention as millions of players are actively playing the laid-back simulation game. Furthermore, the game allows anyone to create an idealistic island life, decorate homes, and visit friends’ islands too.
To date, the game has sold more than 11 million copies. On top of that, Animal Crossing is currently the second best-selling Nintendo Switch game in Japan. With its acclaimed success, more companies and organizations are joining the game’s bandwagon. Furthermore, it’s not a surprise if the game will continue to appear in catalogs, clips, and promotions in other companies.
Recently, Gillette Razor has also incorporated the game into its latest promotion. It features the game’s characters in different skin colors and flaunting their imperfect skins and bodies. Thus, the game also promotes the importance of self-expression.
Also, Hellmann’s Canada used the game to initiate food charity drive. Players can exchange their spoiled turnips into real food. As a result, Hellmann’s Canada can provide 25,000 meals through Second Harvest Canada.

However, this is not the first time that IKEA partnered itself with a video game company. To recall, the furniture manufacturer launched the IKEA VR Experience in 2016. The VR Experience is an interactive kitchen simulator, accessible and downloadable on STEAM for free.
