Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now nearly two months old, and it’s safe to say that players are getting a little bit of sick of catching sea bass.
For those who haven’t played it, the game features activities including fossil-hunting, planting and fishing. Many of these activities will reward you with a little joke, a pun or a quip, which can get a little repetitive.
The sea bass is one of the most common fish in the game, meaning players are seeing the sea bass joke approximately one billion times a day* (*not real figure), and it turns out that even the writer of the joke is sick of seeing it.
As reported by Kotaku, game writer Rob Heiret took to Twitter to share his feelings on the sea bass joke, writing: “If you’ve played the game, you’re tired of the sea bass joke. I get it. *I’M* tired of the sea bass joke, and I wrote it. But here’s a secret about the sea bass joke:
“It was originally “I caught a sea bass! Well…maybe a C- bass…)”
The joke in the game reads: “I caught a sea bass!…No wait, it’s at least a C+!”
At least we’re not the only ones getting a little sea-sick of sea bass. As the most common fish in the game, expect to see this quip on the daily!
Despite its silly flaws, Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to be one of the biggest games of the year. Releasing in March, the title has quickly become one of the highest-selling titles on the Nintendo Switch.
In just the first six weeks of its launch, the game sold 13.41 million units, vastly outselling its Nintendo DS and 3DS predecessors.
