Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Isabelle statue First 4 Figures

First 4 Figures hasn’t done much with Animal Crossing, but that changes today with the reveal of a new statue of Isabelle from New Horizons.

The company says it “meticulously replicated” details of the character, including her attire with the coral Nook Inc. aloha shirt and white skirt. You can say the same about Isabelle’s appearance since the statue retains her floppy ears and ponytail.

A new physical reward just went up on My Nintendo based on Animal Crossing: New Horizons. If you have some Platinum Points lying around, you can get your hands on a leaf bandana. 

The bandana is inspired by Nook Inc. and is decked out with leaves. It’s 100% polyester and measures 23”x 16”. You can use it to tie something together, as a hair accessory, and more.

Animal Crossing New Horizons furniture

Ami Takai worked on object design in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, specifically regarding furniture. In a post on Nintendo’s recruitment site, Takai explained how the whole process of development took place.

It may not seem like a complicated position, but furniture creation is actually a significant part of Animal Crossing’s design. Takai ended up making “hundreds of kinds of furniture”, all of which needed to be presented well in HD.
