One Animal Crossing: New Horizons Player Recreated Legend of Zelda’s Hyrule

It's dangerous to go alone, take this awesome Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan creation.

It’s dangerous to go alone, take this awesome Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan creation where one player worked hard to recreate Hyrule! If you’re like me, your island may still be very much a Work In Progress but other players are really pulling out all of the stops when it comes to creativity. That’s why when we stumbled upon this one Legend of Zelda-inspired creation over on Reddit, we just had to share! After all, we already partied hard to some of our favorite Mass Effect recreations yesterday. 

After 4 grueling days of terraforming I’ve modeled my island after Hyrule from Link to the Past! More pictures in the comments from r/AnimalCrossing

This Animal Crossing player drew information from the Hyrule seen in Link to the Past, the original release. According to the creative Redditor, this took them four days and a lot of grinding due to bridge and ramp costs, island movement, and housing placements. 

The user also mentioned that due to all of the public praise this creation received that they would be open to hosting a video tour up close and personal allowing for people to see Hyrule for themselves. As someone that only just recently was able to make their very first bridge, I am more than impressed with how this turned out and am jealous of those mad skillz. 

For those interested, there are even more pictures posted to see all of the Legend of Zelda gloriousness: 

You can try your hand at creating a little something special for yourself because Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch!
