Joe Biden’s ‘Animal Crossing’ Island Features Model Trains, Ice Cream and More of His Favorite Things

Joe Biden’s campaign has created an elaborate virtual island in Nintendo’s “Animal Crossing” video game as a way to recruit younger voters ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

Biden staffers were hard at work developing the intricate “Biden Island,” which became available to the public Oct. 16. It has everything the democratic presidential nominee says he adores, including a field office packed with a model train set and an ice cream shop.

“Animal Crossing” players can choose phrases to chat with one another in-game, and if a player walks up to Biden’s aviator-clad “Animal Crossing” avatar in-game to start a chat, he’ll reply with his campaign slogan — “No Malarkey!”

Biden Island was revealed on a live video stream of gaming podcast Kinda Funny Games, with host Greg Miller and Gary Whitta, who hosts his own virtual talk show with celebrity guests called “Animal Talking” on YouTube. Whitta’s past episodes have seen him touring the “Animal Crossing” islands of stars like Selena Gomez, Brie Larson, and Josh Gad.

While visitors can come and go from the island, whoever creates one can choose what type of animals the permanent residents are. Miller said on the live stream that “a lot of the residents on the island are dogs, Joe Biden loves dogs.”

Biden isn’t the first politician to make an “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” island — in early May Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined the game and started visiting random supporters’ islands and offering them fruits (in the game, fruits are a part of the currency system, so fans were undeniably ecstatic when the Representative appeared with an offering of pears).

To visit “Animal Crossing” islands, users need to enter a code in-game. Biden’s campaign said his code is DA-7286-5710-7478. Users can also deck their “Animal Crossing” avatar out in a Biden-Harris campaign t-shirt by texting “AC” to 30330.

The lower buttons on Jlo’s shirt, however, were left open, giving just the slightest peek at her toned midriff.

The collar of her shirt had a metal ornament affixed to it.  

The actress-singer-dancer-producer wore elegant brown slacks, also in a size intentionally too large. 

On her feet were brown loafers.

Lopez completed her color-coordinated look with a petite taupe leather purse from Coach, decorated with a gold chain and doodles of buildings upon it.

Jennifer has been the global face of the Coach brand since late last year.

She pulled her pair back into a sleek high ponytail, and wore rounded sunshades.

Joe Biden’s Animal Crossing Island Has Ice Cream, Dogs, And Model Trains

The Joe Biden campaign put some serious work into its island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The Democratic presidential nominee can be seen walking around his field office, a polling place, and much more in the meticulously designed ‘Biden HQ.’ He’ll shout one of his campaign slogans, “no malarkey” if you speak to his character.

“A lot of the residents on the island are dogs, Joe Biden loves dogs,” said Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller while exploring the island on Twitch. Kinda Funny debuted the town on their stream on October 16 by visiting it with the Dream Suite. Miller was joined by Animal Talking Host Gary Whitta.

The island has Joe Biden yard signs, a field office with a basement full of trains (one of Joe Biden’s nicknames is ‘Amtrak Joe’ since he often commuted by train), a polling place with voter information, and an ice cream stand in front of Nook’s Cranny. There are a lot of fun spaces on the island, including Joe Biden fliers (made with custom designs) on the ground in places.

It’s clear that whoever designed the island is a big fan of Animal Crossing. The back part of the Biden HQ is covered in dog houses (turned around so they look like houses in the distance) and windmills. It’s a common design trick that makes islands feel bigger in the Animal Crossing community.

You can visit Biden HQ in Animal Crossing by laying down in bed to open the Dream Suite and entering the code DA-7286-5710-7478. You won’t be able to take anything from the island, but you can text “AC” to 30330 to get a special Biden campaign shirt for your villager.

President Trump doesn’t have an Animal Crossing: New Horizons island yet and with the election fast approaching he better get on that. Terraforming takes a long time. Both candidates had individual town halls this week to talk to voters about social justice, climate change, and other issues.
