A diehard fan revamps their island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons to recreate the iconic Pokemon Center from the popular Game Freak series.
Animal Crossing and Pokemon are arguably two of the most popular titles from Nintendo. With Animal Crossing: New Horizons being one of the best-selling games around the world, and The Pokemon Company continuing to expand across different entertainment categories, it is not surprising that a fan of both franchises recently recreated Game Freak's iconic Pokemon Center on their getaway island.
On the Animal Crossing and Pokemon's Reddit threads, user ACQueen48 (@acnh.pokeland on Instagram) shared their project of meticulously replicating the famous medical building. Taking Animal Crossing: New Horizon's customization options to the next level, ACQueen48 used clothing and hat mannequins and custom design furniture to display Pokemon-themed designs. With such minute details, visitors to the island automatically feel the nostalgia of being transported back into their most-loved Pokemon region.
Behind the counter lined up with Poke Balls, visitors will be able to spot the Poke Ball tray and the "Chansey" that is normally in charge of healing a Trainer's Pokemon. The computer that is typically used by players to save their game files or transfer their Pokemon is also quietly placed to the side. And to complete the whole look and feel, ACQueen48 welcomes their guests by having their New Horizons avatar wear the well-known Nurse Joy outfit.
ACQueen48's recreation of the Pokemon Center on Animal Crossing: New Horizons was very well-received by fans on the Reddit threads. Some have commented that they can even hear the music associated to the center just by looking at the shared photo. ACQueen48 also replied that some of the designs were originally created by them, when asked how they were able to make such accurate likenesses in the threads. And apparently, this is not the first recreation ACQueen48 has done that centers around Pokemon. On their Instagram account, they have also shared their own impeccable replicas of the game's Pokemon Mart and Professor Oak's office from Gen 1.
Fans are constantly inspired to create their own content featuring notable characters and experiences from Animal Crossing and Pokemon. Recently, a fan caught online attention by drawing fan art of the original 151 Pokemon using only the Excel program, while another content creator generated a million YouTube views for his victory screen clip of replacing Sephiroth with ACNH's Isabelle. And with how active both titles are in keeping their fans engaged, this is likely not the last the public will see of player-generated content.
Video games have been local experiences for much of their existence. As online play has become a viable option, so too have games ready to take advantage of being connected to servers. In 2020, the landscape of ever-evolving games has grown far beyond early adopters such as World of Warcraft; in genre and scope.
While MMORPGs still have a key niche, there are any number of first-person shooters, casual experiences, and mobile games that retain players for huge stretches by consistently introducing new content. A hallmark of ongoing titles is the in-game event, which players have to be active during a specific time to experience. This year featured some great in-game events players will no doubt remember, or look forward to seeing return in 2021. This list has been ordered alphabetically by title.
