Yes, Someone Recreated Hamilton in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

One Animal Crossing fan (and Nintendo employee) didn't throw away their shot to recreate iconic numbers from the Broadway musical Hamilton.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons released back in March, and while the game has been out for several months now, players are continuing to find new and creative ways to make their islands and homes distinct. Some players have shown a ton of imagination while trying to live out their fantasies on their Animal Crossing islands, with one player (and Nintendo employee) going to extreme lengths to make their island a little more theatrical; especially if you happen to be a fan of the megahit musical, Hamilton.

Over on Twitter, Rob Heiret — a Nintendo employee and avid Animal Crossing player — shared a series of images that recreates all 46 numbers from the Broadway musical Hamilton, coinciding with its release this past weekend on Disney+. As you can tell, Heiret went all-in on recreating the staging and poses from some of the show’s most iconic numbers, such as “My Shot,” “Satisfied,” “The Room Where It Happens,” and many more. You can check out a couple of the images below, but we’d recommend checking out the entire thread:

Over the past several years Hamilton, which opened on Broadway in 2015 and was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, has jumped from the Broadway stage to mainstream (and internet) culture at large. The hip-hop rendition of the life of Alexander Hamilton became a huge critical and commercial success on Broadway, and while multiple other productions of the show have opened around the world, the musical’s streaming debut on Disney+ is the first time that the musical has been accessible to a wider audience.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch, while you can find Hamilton streaming now on Disney+. Give it a watch, it’s very good; and hey, why not play Animal Crossing while watching it?
