Animal Crossing: New Horizons comes to life in this incredible fan animation

0

A lovely morning for Isabelle

Animal Crossing and creativity have always gone hand-in-hand, as Nintendo social sim continually brings out the best in its community of artists, musicians, model-makers, and designers. Case in point: This simply gorgeous fan animation, independently created by Chilean animator and Animal Crossing fan Gabriel Salas.

Designed as a fake teaser trailer for a hypothetical Animal Crossing TV series, the short video is the result of hours of painstaking work for Salas and their team, and sees everyone's favorite hard-working doggo, Isabelle, dutifully preparing for a day at the Resident Services office - complete with dusting, plant-care, and a trusty cup of Joe.

Salas notes that their beautiful, exquisitely staged animation combines the animator's love of both the Animal Crossing franchise and Japanese stop-motion series Rilakkuma & Kaoru, currently available to stream on Netflix. The attention to detail in Salas' film is stunning, and the delightfully fuzzy felt aspect of Isabelle is utterly infectious. Salas and their production team - including animator Jaime Mora and composer Jeremy Neroes - clearly have bags of talent. Here's hoping we see more delightful videos from them in future.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now on Nintendo Switch.
