Decorating one’s house in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the biggest draws of the game, and of the series itself. It’s such an integral part of the series that Nintendo felt the need to make a standalone game on 3DS, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, that focused just on the idea of decorating houses.
In an easy-to-follow video guide, ballato420 places down their wall-mounted 50 inch TV, then grabs wooden pillars and wooden counters and places them beside and underneath the TV. To top it off, they have a nice hanging shelf set up as well as some decorations on the new shelf they set up. The setup for everything only takes 40 seconds in the video.
Given the level of passion some people in the Animal Crossing community have for the series, how-to videos like these help out some of the more casual members of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Some people aren’t as creative with their house setups, so videos like these are always a good thing to see in a community based around being creative.
A few of the comments underneath the video have praised ballato420 for the video, and the user has also answered some more questions some in the community had, clarifying exactly how he managed to produce the TV stand. Taking time out of the day to help others is a welcome gesture to see, and it always helps reinforce the fanbase by retaining interest in the players that continue to put time into these games every day. Other Animal Crossing players have also contributed to home designs to great success.
If only all video game communities can be this cool with helping new or casual players. Sure, some would consider Animal Crossing a more casual game, but gamers should be out to have fun first and foremost, and helping others with the game should be accepted with open arms. Hopefully, more users like ballato420 pop up around the Animal Crossing: New Horizons community. Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ future is looking good, especially with the latest expansion Happy Home Paradise.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
What was this place like before Saruman brought evil upon it, and what does it say about nature in the real world?
