This New Switch Game Has Every Meme Lover's Attention

She's the star of a wildly popular children's TV show (with a banned episode to her credit) and a meme-worthy sensation — and now, she's getting her very own video game this fall. "My Friend Peppa Pig" is officially set to drop Fall 2021, and the excitement surrounding Peppa Pig's next adventure is palpable.

While not everyone is into kids' games certainly isn't for everyone, this new title is sure to spark plenty of fodder for the long-standing history of Peppa Pig memes. The internet has been cracking up for years over various aspects of the character and show. For starters, there's her 7'1” height, which blew the mind of many a meme-maker. As noted by Vox, she's also risen to fame among the LGBTQ+ community thanks to her taste in music, which also earned her social media shout-outs from Charli XCX and Lil Nas X. That type of internet clout isn't too shabby for a cartoon pig whose target audience is preschoolers.

Since "My Friend Peppa Pig" features fully customizable avatars, adventure, and character interactions, there should be plenty of juicy meme-creating opportunities ahead. Even in these early stages of hype, fans have taken to Twitter to crack jokes about the game's inevitable competitive scene, its speedrunning potential, and the possibility of future prank birthday gifts.

She gets hyped about showing her new friend places like the Snowy Mountains, the beach, and Potato City, a veggie-forward theme park from the "Peppa Pig" show. The trailer also includes the release date: Oct. 22, 2021.
