ok so here it goes...
nintendo created the coronavirus to coincide with the release of animal crossing
if you think about it, it all makes sense. nintendo has profited more than anybody during this pandemic, as ACNH has become one of the best-selling switch games in less than 2 months, and everywhere legitimate is completely sold out of switches. their new game has been a major success mostly because nobody can go outside, and their system had a huge sales boom due to the same reason.
why do you think barely any new first-party titles are coming out this year? because the development teams are all making and evolving the coronavirus. it all makes sense!
it wouldn’t surprise me if they had their hand in the scalping business as well, but there’s no substantial evidence of that so it’s just a theory.
feel free to let me know your opinions below, and if you disagree with my theory you’re factually incorrect thank you and goodbye
