A Crash Bandicoot-inspired jungle region was made for one section of an Animal Crossing: New Horizons user’s island. The Schitt’s Creek motel room and a recreation of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Fort Hateno were among the in-game creations that took inspiration from popular culture. Animal Crossing is a social virtual world game series that debuted in the early 2000s with its initial adventure on the Nintendo 64 and GameCube.
In its wake came a slew of mainline sequels and spinoffs, carving out a unique place in the Nintendo ecosystem. But it wasn’t until the release of New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch in 2020 that Animal Crossing as a whole reached new heights.
Except for Crash Bandicoot himself, the Crash Bandicoot-inspired sculpture has just about everything one needs to create the atmosphere. Nintendo rounded out 2021 by releasing Happy Home Paradise, a DLC offering that lets players design holiday houses for interested locals.
After months of silence about the future of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Happy Home Paradise was the first and only paid addition for ACNH, and it made a huge difference for the game’s user base. The same can be said for the game’s most recent big update, Version 2.0, which was released in November and added new objects and characters, including fan-favorite Animal Crossing NPC Brewster, according to the published article on the Screen Rant site.
Some fans already have a clear idea of what they want to make, such as a set based on another computer game or even a different genre of media. Now, one Animal Crossing: New Horizons gamer has revealed a section of their island dedicated to Crash Bandicoot, the crazy level design franchise.
Crash Bandicoot was a huge hit in the 1990s, and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the latest installment in the series. It’s not surprising that Animal Crossing fans would want to create tributes to Crash and his buddies now that the game seems to be relevant to modern players based on the posted news on the Game Rant site.
Fans are delighted about the lord of gifts’ effort, and while this isn’t the first time an Animal Crossing player has attempted to reproduce an iconic area from another game, it may be the most faithful to the original title’s essence.
