With all the video calls and working from home people are having to do during the Covid-19 pandemic, background wallpapers have become second nature. Nintendo has decided to throw its hats in, and not just a plumber’s cap either. Multiple, official Nintendo virtual backgrounds have been bestowed upon the world from the following games:

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  • ARMS
  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  • Kirby Star Allies
  • Luigi’s Mansion 3
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Pokémon: Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield
  • Splatoon 2
  • Super Mario Maker 2
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Be sure to check them all out via the official website.

As much as I love the idea of conducting all my Zoom meetings with a galactic Kirby background, the most tempting is Isabelle’s own Resident Services seat from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Now it is us, all of us, who can talk about our favorite cooking shows and missing socks.

Let us know what your favorite Nintendo virtual background is!

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
