This EarthBound recreation in Animal Crossing: New Horizons looks incredible

Yep, that’s Onett

In just a few short weeks, Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have managed to re-create Hyrule and Pokemon‘s Pallet Town. It’s just incredible what people have done thus far, but this creation from Twitter user koumepo is yet another S-tier level triumph.

As a lot of old school JRPG fans might recognize (or newcomers by way of the eShop, or even Smash Bros. fans), the below clip showcases EarthBound‘s Onett in all its glory. The creator even went above and beyond, wearing Ness cosplay while running around the majority of the town they crafted, showing us the 1:1 re-creation of the road (and details like stop signs and manhole covers) with some Easter eggs to boot (I see Sans hiding in there! And David Letterman’s favorite hologram!).

Are these going to be the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild videos? Maybe not. But I’m enjoying the sweet little pleasures right now.
