You read that right: Aside from racking in the bells, you can now earn actual, cold, hard cash IRL for playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Now that’s one clever way to speedily pay off Tom Nook’s outrageous home loans.

According to HolidaySmart, Hong Kong-based e-sports platform Cyber Games Arena (CGA) is hiring gaming specialists for Nintendo’s smash-hit video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons, who will be able to make their living by playing games for the company. And the cherry on top (as if you needed more convincing): A Nintendo Switch will be provided (we hope it’s the New Horizons-edition console) and successful applicants will be able to work with flexible hours as well. Sounds like a dream come true for us!
