This study aims to determine if there is a relationship between a player’s personality and player type, and how they play Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Very little research has been conducted on social simulation games like Animal Crossing and this study aims to address this gap in our knowledge. This study is being conducted at the School of Applied Psychology, Univeristy College Cork in Ireland.

This study is not affiliated with Nintendo.

The winner of the giveaway will be contacted before the 12th March 2021 and will be sent a digital copy of a Nintendo Switch game of their choice from the Nintendo e-Shop.
