Nintendo Characters from Animal Crossing Come to Life at Seattle Aquarium
Seattle, WA – In an exciting collaboration, the Seattle Aquarium and Nintendo are bringing beloved Animal Crossing characters to life. From October 7 through December 31, visitors can experience the immersive world of Animal Crossing within the aquarium’s exhibits.
One of the highlights of the collaboration is a specially designed backdrop featuring popular Animal Crossing characters. Visitors can strike a pose and capture memories with the adorable lineup as the backdrop. These photo opportunities promise to make for unforgettable moments.
A visit to the touch tank area reveals anemones, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers, alongside a standee of Tom Nook in front of moon jellies. This creative incorporation of Animal Crossing elements adds an extra layer of excitement to the already fascinating touch tank experience.
The Pacific coral reef section is also part of the collaboration. Information screens now feature different fish, with additional information cards from Blathers, a wise owl from the Animal Crossing universe. This educational display provides visitors with interesting facts about the marine life, complementing the interactive experience.
While the indoor exhibits are truly captivating, the Seattle Aquarium is known for its outdoor displays. The sea otter feeding and puffins, in particular, are crowd favorites. To enhance this experience, Isabelle, a helpful dog character from Animal Crossing, appears on the outdoor exhibit screen. She lists the aquarium’s daily events and even offers a QR code for a special bingo game, adding a fun and interactive aspect for visitors.
For those seeking an educational component, the underwater dome and Puget Sound fish exhibit offer a lecture by Blathers himself. Visitors can listen intently as Blathers imparts his extensive knowledge, enriching their understanding of the underwater world.
To commemorate this unique collaboration, exclusive Animal Crossing merchandise, such as squishy pillows shaped like the featured characters’ heads, are available in the aquarium’s gift shop. These charming souvenirs allow visitors to take a piece of the magical experience home with them.
The Animal Crossing collaboration at the Seattle Aquarium is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for fans of the popular game series to interact with their favorite characters in a real-world setting. Whether visitors are looking to enjoy the captivating exhibits or snap a memorable photo, this collaboration promises to bring joy and excitement to all who visit.
