Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives players a ton of freedom in how they want to design their islands. They’ve used that freedom to come up with new events and games to play with their friends online. One of the most inventive creations is by Redditor BunnyBoiEthos, who is turning their village into a Mario Party map.
“I love the [Mario Party] series,” BunnyBoiEthos wrote in a Reddit Post. “At first I thought I was gonna model it after some of my fave boards (Shy Guy’s Perplex Express and Grand Canal and a couple others) but then decided to just make it a bunch of smaller boards with themes based on the island!”
BunnyBoiEthos’ island has blue, red, and question mark spaces laid out across the map like a game board. The spaces, along with some of the pathways, are created with custom designs. Nook’s Cranny and the Able Sisters shop are placed as if they were the item shops from Mario Party. It’s still a work in progress, but BunnyBoiEthos wants to try running Mario Party-like games within Animal Crossing soon.
