Any player of Animal Crossing: New Horizons understands that obtaining every single possible item from Nook’s Cranny is a huge achievement. It takes many hundreds of hours of gameplay to collect every wallpaper, flooring, K.K. Slider song, piece of furniture, item of clothing, villagers posters.

But one player has announced the creation of a “Catalog Island” after months of collecting and 3 weeks of setting up. The island offers a place to go and peruse and pick up every single item you desire, all for free. On Twitter, @Jaiofeden is giving players the chance to visit the island by asking users to retweet and follow her account.

The Island is meticulously organized. Naturally grouped all together are Flooring and Wallpaper, K.K. Slider Songs, Plants, Beach items, and wall-mounted items. A giant part of the beach is dedicated to Miscellaneous items, placed next to all throwback items.

A separate section is also dedicated to villager posters with sub-categories: new villagers, Sanrio, non-playable characters.

The other main sections are organized by room or use. “Kitchen Heaven” contains all kitchen and diner items, “Recreational Kingdom” contains all gym and arcade items and all lamps, “Restroom and More” includes instruments, bears and electronics as well as bathroom items, while “Bedroom and Living room Utopia” does what it says on the tin.

Jai hopes to do an update in the near future with every single rug from Saharah, who sells mystery rugs, flooring, and wallpaper.

Since the island’s opening, Jai has been showered with praise, with one visitor saying “that is the most beautiful, most organized island I’ve ever seen… I already ordered like 60 things”

How to get invited

Jai invites 4 players at a time and uses more than one method to select those visitors. Jai specifies that in order to be invited you must be a follower. She will often take a selection from people who have retweeted her or commented on a tweet that day.

She also specifies that she will not accept accounts with no profile picture and no followers as those profiles cannot be accountable for stealing.

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.
