About a year and a half ago, I wrote a short post over on my own blog about a tour I created for my house and 5-star island (which I named Quackville) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This partially Disneyland-themed island received some changes before the inevitable exhaustion from playing the same game (even if intermittently) over the course of two years finally set in. While I have yet to uncover everything the newest update has to offer, I think a break is in order, and so I decided to record a second, updated tour to show off all of my (and Charlotte’s) hard work.
The left-to-middle side of the island features Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, New Orleans Square (which includes the museum as a stand-in for the Haunted Mansion, complete with a graveyard), and Tom Sawyer Island, while the right side features a residential area for all of my lovely villagers, backed by a zen garden overlooked by a pagoda. As for my house, I’ve certainly made some major changes here, as well, including giving Clara (Mother Duck’s Animal Crossing character from New Leaf) a mermaid-themed room of her own. Oh, and I also added a golden bathroom since the last tour. After all, the most important room of the house deserves to be especially luxurious!
My time with New Horizons was pretty amazing, and it’s safe to say that this is the very best Animal Crossing game to date. I’m not quite sure how Nintendo will ever be able to top this. I’m certain I’ll return someday, as there is some rococo furniture that I was never quite able to get my hands on, some of which might go quite nicely in my Haunted Mansion ballroom that I set up in the basement. Looking back over my original tour, it’s nice to see that my house and island are even better than ever. And someday, when I decide to return for some more fun, I’m sure I’ll be able to improve upon it even more. After all, as long as our creativity abounds, I don’t think our islands will ever truly be complete.
