Most of the cartoons or animations we see have animal or bird characters that can talk, act, and behave like humans. In other words, they are anthropomorphic characters. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to interact with talking birds or animals, today’s topic of coloring pictures is a video game that allows you to do just that.
We are talking about the hugely popular social simulation video game, Animal Crossing. Created by Katsuya Eguchi and Hisashi Nogami for Nintendo, the game lets the player be a human character in a village full of anthropomorphic animals engaging in various activities. Since its release in 2001, Animal Crossing has garnered commercial and critical success worldwide.
Let’s meet and get to know the villagers through this collection of free printable Animal Crossing coloring pages.
