Someone brought a skin-crawling Junji Ito story into Animal Crossing: New Horizons using standees


Worlds collide in this fan-made tribute to The Enigma of Amigara Fault

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Junji Ito together in one place? It's mad enough to work!

Players have wasted no time making the most of the newly-added Custom Design Pro Editor+ tool. For some creators, it's a chance to bring cats into the game with perfectly-laid-out custom umbrella patterns. For others, the upgraded tool is a way to unleash unspeakable horrors upon their islanders.

Gyo is far from my favorite Junji Ito tale, but I'll always appreciate it for its creepy-as-all-hell bonus story, The Enigma of Amigara Fault. That name may not ring a bell, but you might've come across a disturbing image or two cherry-picked for a comments section – it's the one about freaky human-body-sized holes in a mountain and the people who, against all reason, are compelled to snugly enter them.

Someone had the inspired idea to do this with the basic face-cutout standee template:

If you get it, you get it. You know how cursed this otherwise innocuous-looking creation is.

This is prime "Animal Crossing is actually messed up when you think about it!" fodder.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons creators are persistently creative in ways I'll never be, and this is my daily reminder. They know how to breathe new life into the game while we all wait for content updates.
