Acquiring some of the rarest flowers in Animal Crossing: Crossing New Horizon is going to take a careful look at a hybrid guide that tells you exactly how to position your garden to unlock more varieties.

It’s not something the game gives players too many clues about, but there are ways of getting wildly different hues for different flowers. This can lead to some eye-catching blossoms like a brown cosmo or even black rose.

Just like with achieving anything in New Horizons, getting the different kinds of flowers is a process. For some of the rarer varieties, there are even ‘purebred’ colors to consider when arranging one’s garden.

Taking care of your flowers every day is key to getting new colors in New Horizons.

User ‘muppetmaker’ showed a guide with everything players will need to get the most out of Animal Crossing’s plant combinations to create incredible new colors.

To create the flowers, the guide shows how they should be arranged on the ground. They’ve listed an extensive look into all of the flower arrangements for windflowers, lilies, mums, hyacinths, pansies, tulips, cosmos, and roses.

Some players will be surprised to see that there are combinations that result in a different kind of flower which, paired with another of its type, actually makes a completely different color altogether.

While there’s still a numbers game behind the cute facade of Animal Crossing, the creators of the chart made sure to use this as a general color guide for the possible different types.

But some of them are going to take purebred flowers. There isn’t anything too important to note from purebreds other than they are flowers that bloom directly from seeds.

Even though there isn’t much of a difference on the surface, it’s something to keep in mind while arranging your garden to avoid any unintended results.

Being on top of your New Horizons garden can yield more flower colors.

While flowers aren’t as coveted as other builds, fruits, etc, New Horizons is all about customizing every facet of your island.

There has been incredible creations already made in the game, like reimaginings for scenes from hit blockbuster movies and a lot more.

To get the max out of your garden or get that last little detail right by having a specific type of flower color, you’ll want to follow the Animal Crossing: New Horizons hybrid flower guide.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.

The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
