In an era full of hardship, despair, and isolation, Animal Crossing: New Horizons became a cultural force, a gaming phenom that sold nearly 30 million copies in its first year. The ability to escape, to feel the warmth of sunny shores and joyful animal friends, all while connecting virtually with loved ones made Nintendo’s 2020 smash hit the Game of the Year–well at least in the minds of a lot of passionate fans. Regardless of its shortcomings at year end awards, Animal Crossing: New Horizons gave players a place to build memories that will last a lifetime.
Now, thanks to Esty artist MeagArtista, fans can memorialize their beloved characters and island experiences forever. Meag explains:
