Anyone who has gotten their hands on an Animal Crossing installment knows how dangerous it is to get carried away by the capitalist spiral of Tom Nook. Decorating the house, paying the mortgage and meeting our neighbors becomes a hellish loop from which there is no getting out. If to the formula of Nintendo we add the characters of Disneywe can say goodbye to our loved ones.
And it is that Disney Dreamlight Valley is the dream come true for lovers of the animation factory. A fantasy kingdom in which to immerse ourselves with the classic life simulator mechanics, but all watered down by the most iconic protagonists of the brand. It’s still in Early Access, but you can already get your hands on it on Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
The plot places us in Dreamlight Valley, a dream place that is populated by Disney and Pixar characters, but which is ravaged by an evil known as Oblivion. Our task will be to recover the memories linked to this magical sanctuary, but living with the animated beings themselves. First we will have to free the Castle of Dreams to be able to access kingdoms like Simba’s or Princess Anna’s.
Each of them has its own particularities, be it challenges, puzzles and unique settings. Forging friendships with characters like WALL•E, cooking with Remy or fishing with Goofy are some of the daily activities that we can carry out, including the most popular villains. Each of the neighbors has their personal plot that we can discover. We can customize the neighborhood in which we live with complete freedom, since there are multiple options so that we are satisfied with the decoration.
Our own avatar exudes style depending on the set of clothes we put on it, just like our home with the infinity of objects that are available. In the Early Access package we will find costumes that pay homage to the Disney parks, perfect for being able to take a selfie with Rapunzel or save the snapshots that we like the most. If we want to get our creative streak out, the Magic Touch tool is perfect for creating your own sticker designs. Obviously, we are talking about Disney Dreamlight Valley It has not yet reached its version 1.0, so the inclusion of content is constant so that there are always reasons to return.
