Animal Crossing: New Horizons Player Recreates Island into Hyrule from Zelda: A Link to the Past

If you ever needed some inspiration to recreate your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island into something more, check out this player who turned their island into Hyrule from Zelda: A Link to the Past.

While plenty of people are laying around on their sofa’s, eating the last box of cookies they promised themselves an hour ago they wouldn’t eat and binge-watching Tiger King, Animal Crossing: New Horizon players have been hard at work. Granted some have been super stressed out about their turnips, but one player in particular thought they would recreate their peaceful tropical island into the 90s iconic gaming hit, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Reddit user VaynMaanen spent a grueling four days perfecting their island into the Hyrule map, making sure to pay close attention to detail. From the pictures shown, VaynMaanen included Death Mountain,  all waterways including the Waterfall of Wishing, a re-creation of the starting point in A Link to the Past, Link’s house, and there’s even a recreation of Kakariko Village to the west, crafted from a huddle of islander homes. The player also placed a map of Zelda’s iconic overworld in comparison to showcase how much they worked to make it look similar. You can check out many more pictures right here.

VaynMaanen’s remarkable recreation of the original SNES map only goes to show how much you can do with Animal Crossing: New Horizon‘s terraforming tools which means the sky is your limit (kind of) in what you could create. Heck, even The Room‘s director, Tommy Wiseau has created his own little house in the popular Switch game. Is there anyone that hasn’t left the hellfire of the real world and created a new life for themselves in Animal Crossing?

Discovering new and exciting ways to be creative is one of the best things about Animal Crossing: New Horizons and one of those things is actually using the toilet when you’ve ended up stuffing your face with way too much fruit and we all know what too much fruit does. If you have ever wondered how all those players are making fancy art, you can check out this helpful guide that tells you how to import art and scan QR codes by using the NookLink app.

With The Last of Us Part 2 just around the corner, why not get creative with your villager and transform them into Ellie from The Last of Us. Twitter user Allie Heinitz recently posted how they achieved the iconic Ellie look and even supplied a code so that players could also dress up as their favorite post-apocalyptic survivor complete with backpack, Ellie’s famous red T-shirt and also that well-known eyebrow scar.

Animal Crossing launched on the Nintendo Switch on March 20 so if you still haven’t had the chance to jump in, don’t worry as you can pick up your copy right here.
