    07.July.2020 | ANIME&GAME

    Pip Japan has created collection of items for the Nintendo Switch title Animal Crossing: New Horizons using the game’s Custom Designs featured which it revealed on July 2 via the official Pip Elekiban Twitter account. Pip Elekiban is a magnetic patch used on the skin for treating muscle stiffness.

    In May 2020, a survey was held in Japan for 300 men and women aged between 20-50 years old. They were asked whether they felt some form of stress during the current situation, with 60% confirming that they did. This includes mental stress as a result of not being able to visit places they wanted to visit or meet who they wanted to meet, work-related stress, physical stress brought about by a lack of exercise, and so on. Part of Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ success can be attributed to these causes, with people purchasing the game during the lockdown to help alleviate stresses and as a form of escapism.

     

    Pip Japan wanted to help bring some smiles to people’s faces during the pandemic, and so have designed their own clothing collection for the game.
