A talented Avatar: The Last Airbender fan has recreated the Nickelodeon animation’s intro in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and it’ll give you a serious urge to go and watch the show.

The Last Airbender is constantly praised as one of the best animations of all time. First released in 2005, it follows the story of 12-year-old Aang after he awakens from being trapped in ice for 100 years, leaving him the sole survivor of the Air Nomads – and the Avatar. He embarks on an epic quest to master the elements to save the world from the Fire Nation’s grips, alongside his trusty team Sokka, Katara, and Toph.

The show even won the prestigious Peabody Award for the way it handles difficult themes such as war, loss, free movement, and depression. And it’s just as popular with fans too, with one viewer recreating the entire into sequence in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, making it a crossover we’d all love to see happen officially.

Avatar’s intro recreated in New Horizons

Reddit user ‘suks__‘ is the brains behind the masterpiece, using the life simulation’s villagers to recreate the famous intro sequence. They start off by using octopus Marina for Master Pakku as the waterbender, cat Tangy for Sud as the earthbender, alligator Drago for Azula as the firebender, and goat Sherb as the airbender.

It then goes through the part where “the four nations lived together in harmony, then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked” is played out, before using Raymond as the part of Roku, who was the Avatar before the 12-year-old.

Dog villagers Marcel and Daisy play Sokka and Katara as they find the last airbender trapped in the ice, before it reveals Sherb as Aang. The ending sees him facing backwards to mimic the Avatar standing on the rock at the end of the real intro.

it took me 2 hours to make this but i love how the avatar last airbender intro meets animal crossing turned out from AnimalCrossing

This isn’t the first time a fan has brought the animation to New Horizons – places such as the Spirit Oasis have been reimagined, as well as THAT Iroh scene that will make you cry.

If this has put you in the mood to watch The Last Airbender, you’re in luck as Netflix has just added all three seasons to its service, meaning you can binge-watch to your heart’s content.


Animal Crossing player’s crazy Smash Ultimate tournament venue goes viral

An Animal Crossing New Horizons player designed a brilliant Smash Ultimate tournament venue in-game, and many fans are absolutely loving it.

The global health crisis really hurt LAN events for Smash Ultimate and other fighting games in 2020. Many venues that thrived off hosting events suffered immensely, and while players have been missing in-person competitions, that didn’t stop one player from recreating a tournament venue within Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing is chock full of materials and objects that work well to design a fighting game venue, and Redditor ‘timshady11’ made good use of them for their creation.

Anyone who has ever been to a weekly tournament at a bar, restaurant or arcade is familiar with the general layout. You have the front desk for signups and registration, numerous setups for people to compete and a spot designated for streaming high-profile matchups.

The Smash scene got a bit beaten up.

In this case, timshady11 included all of those things and then some. As you can see in the video, there is a desk area by the entrance with a laptop and Smash Ultimate book to keep track of tournament entrees.

Moving on from there, the venue has all sorts of desks with two chairs, a monitor and a Nintendo Switch. In total, we count six of these non-featured setups, which is a respectable number for a weekly event.

The venue also has numerous arcade cabinets, vending machines, booths, couches, and of course, a stream setup. That section is pretty well-made with cameras, a computer, and three couches in the vicinity for observers.

Users on Reddit were certainty impressed with the creation. “Awesome! The aesthetic is cozy and cool, really like the vibe overall,” one complimented.

“This is amazing! It made me really nostalgic for IRL tournaments tho,” another remarked with a frowny face emoji.

If you want to visit the island for yourself, timshady11 revealed it as: DA-3428-2657-9989.

While Smash tournaments have been forced to move online, hopefully, players will get the opportunity to return to their venues in the foreseeable future and duke it out in person once again. Until then, at least there’s always the Animal Crossing island to tide us over.
