A player in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons community recreated a scenario from one of the teasers for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Nintendo‘s desert island life sim has proven to be a varied way for gamers to express themselves, as well as a terrific way to pay respect to other properties.

This week, Zelda fans got some long-awaited news about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s planned sequel. After the recent Nintendo Direct, in which Tears of the Kingdom’s title and release date were finally announced, interest in the game has gone through the roof. This has led fans to show their excitement in a variety of ways, such as watching the latest trailer over and over again and, of course, making fan art.

Reddit user Naydinfar-Crossing has joined the trend by terraforming their Animal Crossing: New Horizons island to look like the environment depicted in the second trailer for Tears of the Kingdom.

The original topography from Breath of the Wild as well as the sequel’s floating landmasses are carefully recreated here, with elevated ground rising over boulders that make believable clouds, and rows of stone pyramids serving as substantial stand-ins for Hyrule’s distant mountains.

The Villager, pictured viewing the terrain in Link’s new one-sleeved toga attire, rounds out the scene well. Although Zelda-inspired designs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons aren’t uncommon, the sheer amount of detail and subtle touches in Naydinfar’s make it one of the more outstanding examples so far.

As of this writing, the post has earned more than 8,100 upvotes from the Animal Crossing Reddit community. Numerous admirers were quick to appreciate Naydinfar’s effort, with some remarking that it resembles a Zelda game and others admiring how quickly it was created.

However, Naydinfar’s recreation is based on a scene from the Tears of the Kingdom E3 2021 teaser, so they’ve likely had months to put it together and were merely waiting for the ideal time to show it off, such as when everyone’s excited about the game’s official name and release date being released.
