Animal Crossing community creations – from Rick Astley to Pokémon

Considering they’ve got a limited set of furniture to work with, and no in-game hands to boot, the dedicated fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have proven to be one of the most ridiculously creative game communities around. In between manipulating the economy with only turnips, and cooing over in-game visits from actual real-life celebrities, they’ve been busy decorating the heck out of their islands to recreate pretty much anything you can think of, from iconic album covers to shot-by-shot remakes of a particular Rick Astley video.

Considering they’ve got a limited set of furniture to work with, and no in-game hands to boot, the dedicated fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have proven to be one of the most ridiculously creative game communities around. In between manipulating the economy with only turnips, and cooing over in-game visits from actual real-life celebrities, they’ve been busy decorating the heck out of their islands to recreate pretty much anything you can think of, from iconic album covers to shot-by-shot remakes of a particular Rick Astley video.

So without further ado, let’s take a peek at some of the most creative in-game recreations we’ve seen since players got their hands on Dreams for PS4. Seriously though, did you see how delicious they made their breakfast look?)

1. A certain Rick Astley music video

A faithful, shot-by-shot remake, complete with quiff, sunglasses, and dad dancing. If only all rickrolls left us feeling so charmed.

2. Starbucks

Without coffee, how could poor old Isabelle get through the day? We reckon Tom Nook is missing a trick by not setting up his own coffee chain, though. Who could fail to throw their last few remaining bells at that conniving raccoon in exchange for decent coffee?

3. A classic Pokémon world

We can confirm that catching villagers in Poké Balls is frowned upon, especially these ones. And never mind Caterpies and Pidgeys… what if there are tarantulas in that long grass?

4. Pac-Man

Where do we begin with this one, except by shedding a little tear over how awesome it is? The addition of the little hat on the creator’s head just adds extra sparkle to what’s already perfection.

5. Outrun

Here’s another arcade classic recreated in Animal Crossing form. If one day they make the little cars drivable, we could die happy.
