A creative Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan illustrates a beautiful piece of art based on the life sim to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
A fan of Nintendo’s life sim Animal Crossing: New Horizons have shared the adorable artwork they illustrated to celebrate the Lunar New Year. With Animal Crossing: New Horizons After celebrating the Lunar New Year in-game, this fan seems to have posted his artwork just in time for the real and virtual festivities.
Although Nintendo has not shared any news about a new addition to Animal crossing series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to cycle through its seasonal events in the game. This still gives fans plenty to do when they log into their island life daily, especially since the life sim’s free 2.0 update and paid Happy Home Paradise DLC added more items and features for them to enjoy. However, it seems that most of the community engagement for the life sim is online, with fans celebrating real-life holidays like the Lunar New Year with art based on ACNH.
To mark the upcoming Lunar New Year celebration, Redditor Pasuteru-Usagi shared the adorable artwork they illustrated themed after the life sim. In illustration four Animal Crossing: New Horizons Villagers namely Bunnie, Sasha, Ruby and Genji are seen dressed in kimonos and surrounded by Japanese themed elements. According to the artist, the illustration was created for the Year of the Rabbit, which is what 2023 will be according to the Chinese zodiac. This is probably why the four featured villagers in Pasuteru-Usagi’s play are all rabbit or rabbit villagers that players can invite to live on their island.
Other fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons heaped compliments on the Redditor’s work, calling it sweet or lovely. Some commented that they even had some of the ones mentioned Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers as residents in their game, while another pointed out that they were able to invite Ruby to live on their island just on January 1st. Another community member also mentioned that the artist was able to cleverly hide 2023 in the artwork, with only fans being able to spot them if they look closely at the illustration.
With the actual Lunar New Year date just a few weeks away, players will likely see more of these themed artworks being shared by the more creative side of the gaming community. Hopefully more Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans will share their pieces online. Many of the game’s fans will probably want to see their favorite villagers celebrate the Lunar New Year as well.
