The options are truly endless in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with you being able to create an island in your own vision, but one player went the extra mile and created something – well, right out of Breaking Bad. 

The popular series is built on deep storylines, with a lot being hidden away from the public eye, and one fan of the series has brought that same energy to what appears to be an unlikely setting, all things considered.

You walk into houses in Animal Crossing and usually see pretty paintings, maybe even some unique layouts that people have created, but in one particular house in-game all is not what it seems.

You can do a lot indoors in Animal Crossing, but this takes the cake – and whatever else they’re cooking.

There might be a whole load of furniture in the home of Reddit user bagelcrisp, but there’s something that not everybody will know about just waiting to be explored.

Of course, just like Walter White, they appear to be cooking up something very interesting in a hidden room – and it might well be one of the most creative ideas we’ve seen so far.

After moving the bookshelf out from its slot, a black room appears. Right behind it, well, you guessed it… The lab is unveiled in all its glory.

“Got myself a little side business apart from selling turnips,” the user said, before explaining what others need to do in order to pull off the same sort of lab design.

They added: “I honestly made it on a whim to show my boyfriend lol. I just have so much furniture stored I just put the jankiest furniture and decorations up. As long as you have the science set on a table I’m sure people will get the idea lol.”

This isn’t the first crossover design that’s been put together in Animal Crossing and after seeing this one, just like another user said, it’s very much looking a lot like Breaking Bad: New Horizons instead.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Pokemon fans praised the creator’s work, such as one user who exclaimed, “This is so cool!!! You did an amazing job on these.” Another player agreed and wrote, “Wow! I heard the music in my head as soon as I saw the pic! Great Job!”

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
