If you live in Europe, the last few days have likely been unbearably hot for you. Soaring, record-breaking temperatures have hit parts of the continent, and many other parts of the northern hemisphere are also experiencing high temperatures. We're stacking up fans and freezing bottles of water here at Nintendo Life Towers — it's too darn hot!

But trust the lovely Isabelle — our assistant mayor in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and employee at the Resident Services building (and island announcer) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons - to be looking out for us. The official Animal Crossing Twitter — which is absolutely, definitely ran by the buttercup-coloured pup — shared some vital advice for us island dwellers.

Tom Nook and his nephews Timmy and Tommy look like they're living their best lives in that illustration, don't they? It's way too hot to go to the beach right now, but just the idea of being there with a cold beverage in hand, or an ice lolly — we're checking the temperatures to make sure it's a bit more comfortable after we leave work!

We hope you're keeping safe and cool wherever you are. Perhaps you're staying inside playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We're jealous! If only Kapp'n were real... we could go on a nice evening sail to an island.
