A Twitch streamer was left stunned after a committed fan showed off just how much he loves her broadcasts by creating a ‘shrine’ dedicated to her in their Animal Crossing: New Horizons house.

New Horizons released on March 20, and players all over the world have been glued to their Nintendo Switch consoles non-stop, trying to beautify their islands and make a virtual living in the life simulation title.

One of the features in the game is being able to take QR codes, turn them into patterns, and download them into your Nook Phone using the Custom Designs app. One Twitch viewer did this with photographs of their favorite streamer ‘yugwha0901,’ and surprised her by showing off a whole room in their Animal Crossing house dedicated to her.

After flying to the fan’s island via Dodo Airlines, the streamer took a small tour of their town, stopping off at the museum to see what fish and bugs they’d caught, and marveling at the theme park they’d built.

Yugwha then asked to see their house, and followed them to their abode, where she was shocked to find a photograph of her and the viewer on a sign outside the front door. “Hold on, what the heck… That’s me! That’s me and [the viewer]!” she laughed, oblivious as to what was coming.

“Why is your house in the beach area?” she asked out loud, to which the fan replied “Ladies like beach houses” via the in-game text chat with a speech bubble popping up over their head.

After taking a tour around several rooms in the viewer’s house, the streamer asked them to show her another room. Upon entering, her eyes widened in shock. “What is this room?” she asked, as several photographs of her lined the walls, and candles were laid out on the floor to create a shrine of sorts.

“Uhhhhh…” the fan typed, before sitting in a chair facing the wall art and clapping. “Hahaha, hold on, HOLD ON!” Yugwha screamed as she erupted into hysterics for a solid 90 seconds at what was happening in front of her.

“Wow! By the way, this is so cool!” the streamer finally said after she’d composed herself, admiring the works of art plastered all over the walls. “There’s my cat, too!”

Animal Crossing: New Horizons smashed sales records in Japan, becoming the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch title to date in just its opening weekend alone.

It’s so popular that apparently even Twitch viewers are using it to find a new way to show their favorite streamers how much they care about them – though, luckily, Yugwha found the funny side of it.

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.
