The latest episode of Animal Talking brought superstar singer Selena Gomez to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, along with a host of other guests. Gomez even provided a brand new version of her latest song, “Past Life,” with Trevor Daniel. She was also hilarious, popping out a fantastic dad joke about five minutes in.
Selena Gomez in Animal Crossing aside, God of War Director Cory Barlog also jumped onto the couch. He discussed how he got into working on games for a job. He also talked about the weeks and months following that smash hit’s release, before moving on to discussing PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
My personal favorite guests were Ashley Johnson and Laura Bailey. The pair have worked on a few projects together, including Critical Role and The Last Of Us Part II. Johnson talked about playing the role of Ellie in the latter, which is very interesting for any fans of the series.
Shannon Woodward comes in towards the end of the episode. She was the voice actress for Dina in The Last Of Us Part II, and everything kind of goes off the rails from there.
It’s hard to see how Gary Whitta will top this Animal Talking episode in the future. I’m sure he’ll find a way though.
