A talented cosplayer has brought Mr. Resetti from the Animal Crossing series to life, and it’s the perfect way to get hyped for New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch.

Resetti has been in the Animal Crossing series since the first one released on Nintendo 64 in Japan in 2001. His role has mostly been to lecture players if they turn off their system without saving first, popping up from underground in a fit of rage when the game is loaded back up again.

Cosplayer Karena from Phalafel Cosplays breathed life into the adorably angry mole with a take that’s so cute, it’ll make fans yearn for New Horizons even more than they do already.

In the games, the cranky mole wears a pair of denim overalls over a white long-sleeved shirt. Karena mimics this perfectly in her look, and even included a speech bubble from New Leaf asking for “BETTER JOBS FOR MOLES!!!” – he worked at the Reset Surveillance Center until New Horizons forced him into redundancy.

She also nails his yellow hard hat which he wears while digging his tunnels with his pickaxe – something else she portrayed to perfection as she grips it with her fists and strikes an angry face in true Resetti fashion.

Brown netting was also used around the waist to create the illusion of dirt, much like it would look if he burrowed out of the ground to rage at a player who had quit without saving first. The photo was taken by Felix Wong, and it truly helped to bring the character to life.

In another shot, Karena poses on what appears to be a brown bean bag to really give off that “just popped out of the earth to tell someone off” vibe. Her manic facial expression says it all – don’t mess with the mole.

She’s also dressed up as some other Animal Crossing characters such as Isabelle, Tom Nook, Sable, Bianca, and Gracie, just to name a few – so it’s obvious that she’s just as excited for the Nintendo Switch title as we all are.

Luckily for Resetti, he is given a new job in New Horizons so he won’t be raising his blood pressure all too much. He’s now in charge of Nook Inc.’s Rescue Service, which players call if they get lost or stuck.

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.
