Twitch streamer Mizkif was left heartbroken after learning that Animal Crossing: New Horizons doesn’t always autosave – resulting in him losing a rare fish.

On March 22, the entertainer was hunting for a golden trout – one of the rarest fishes in the game. After trying for quite some time, the streamer freaked out when he managed to reel it in.

“Wait, what?!” he exclaimed. “YES! YES! YES!”

Overjoyed and maybe even a little relieved, Mizkif leaned back in his chair and extended his arms in victory, fist-pumping the air.

“Yes!” he screamed again in triumph. “Yes, dude. Oh my God, that took forever. That was like two-hundred tries.”

“Nice, man! Finally,” he smirked, quite pleased with the results. Unfortunately, his victory would be short-lived as he ended up losing it because of an autosave snafu.

From PogChamp to PogChump.

Shortly thereafter, the streamer went on to try to catch more fish and decided to change the internal date on his Switch as some fish are only available in certain months.

“Lets time-travel a little bit to March,” he said as he exited the game. “Let’s travel back in time so Macayla stops yelling at me.”

However, Mizkif’s chat immediately alerted the streamer that he didn’t save and would lose the rare fish he caught, causing his eyes to grow wide in horror.

“Wait I didn’t save?” the streaming finally stated after a few speechless moments. “I don’t need to save, right? It autosaves, doesn’t it?”

“You just closed the f**king game?!” Macayla roared. “It doesn’t autosave!”

Upon loading back into the game, the streamer was saddened to learn all his hard work had been for nothing.

“Why do you think it would automatically save for your fish?” she asked. “You idiot! You are so stupid. Dude, you are so dumb. What makes you think it saves for a fish?”

For anyone playing Animal Crossing, don’t make the same mistake Mizkif did. Always remember to save on your own and don’t trust a title to automatically save your progress. It may come back to haunt you.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.

The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
