A pair of creative Apex Legends fans have done a fantastic job of bringing their favorite characters, Wraith and Crypto, to Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

New Horizons is the latest game in the Animal Crossing series and, similar to past games, it allows players to customize clothing and share their designs with others.

Animal Crossing players have been sharing their custom outfits and designs practically since the game came out, and Reddit user ventusnightshade has some of the best Apex Legends designs we’ve seen yet.

Wraith is one of Apex’s most popular legends.

Nightshade’s take on Crypto manages to recreate his hair and captures the character perfectly with a relaxed, confident facial expression.

With the Custom Design Pro Editor, they were able to make Crypto’s green and white trenchcoat as well – and of course the tech-savvy legend is on his phone in every photo.

Wraith’s hair is also on point and Nightshade’s partner in crime pulled off an impressive recreation of the legend’s costume.

The Interdimensional Skirmisher seems to be enjoying New Horizons along with everyone else because she’s cracking the rare smile, but the best detail of Animal Crossing Wraith has to be her ‘void’ eyes.

Crypto and Wraith seem to be having a great time in New Horizons.

Unfortunately, Nightshade said they hadn’t unlocked the Able Sisters, so they aren’t able to share the codes for the Crypto and Wraith designs with other players yet.

Designs can be uploaded at the Custom Designs Kiosk at the Sisters’ shop, which you unlock with 5000 Bells after building Nook’s Cranny and interacting with Mabel when she visits your island.

After you upload a design, you get a string of letters and numbers. If you take one of these codes from another player to the Kiosk, you can upload and use them in your game.

The Able sisters take a little convincing to move to your island, but it’s well worth the effort.

While Nightshade said they hadn’t unlocked the sisters yet, they said they would do their best to share it with anyone who wanted to use it.

Now that we’ve seen Crypto and Wraith, we’ll be patiently waiting for the other stars of Apex Legends to show up as well to join them.

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 re-imagined in Animal Crossing

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.
