Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel dipped his toes in the recently released Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch and after inviting viewers onto his island, the streamer was immediately blown away while hosting a fishing competition.

The first fully-fledged Animal Crossing release in eight years has captured the attention of gamers around the world, and some of the biggest streamers have started up their own islands for the very first time.

Sharing his experience with thousands of viewers, xQc decided to host a mini-fishing competition during a March 22 broadcast that saw the popular streamer completely lose his mind.

Asking seven random viewers to stand their characters in a line, each player would present their most impressive fish one by one.

While a few rare sea creatures had xQc impressed, he was completely blown away as the fourth player pulled out one of the biggest fish in the entire game, an ocean sunfish.

“Holy sh*t,” he screamed at the top of his lungs. “What is that? What the f**k is this?”

Not the only animal that absolutely stunned the streamer, xQc also lost his mind as the second last player in line revealed an enormous Oarfish that they’d managed to find just a few days into the game’s release.

“Oh my God. No, they’re cheating. No way,” he joked before asking the final player to reveal their most lucrative creature and being amazed once again.

The final competitor pulled out a ribbon eel and xQc was all but convinced that all of them were cheating. “Cheating Andy’s” he labeled them.

Some of the rarest collectibles in the game, Animal Crossing boasts dozens of unique animal types to track down but these players are already way ahead of the curve.

Clearly xQc hasn’t quite been able to find any of those rare fish on his own island just yet, but after such an explosive reaction, it’s likely he spends every waking moment trying to catch some.

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.
