An upset Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan is surprised and cheered up by a sweet gift inspired by her favorite villager in the game, Shino. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still one of Nintendo’s most popular Switch games nearly three years after its launch on the hybrid platform.
An Endearing Postcard from Shino
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan was cheered up by her boyfriend, Thomilo44, after he created a sweet postcard inspired by the villager Shino. In the postcard, Shino sends her regards to the New Horizons fan and hopes that her island is still thriving in the villager’s absence. Thomilo44’s girlfriend was very upset about Shino leaving the island to pursue her dreams of becoming famous like New Horizons’ K.K. Slider, but the postcard was quickly able to turn the depressing situation into a positive one for both the player and the villager. Moreover, the postcard includes a picture of Shino that depicts the villager’s performance in her first tour after leaving the island.
A Heartwarming Gesture of Love
Thomilo44 does not play Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but he researched more information about Shino in order to create this authentic postcard. While performing some online research about the character, he learned how to recreate text boxes typically found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Additionally, he edited an in-game screenshot of Shino from Animal Crossing: New Horizons to complete the postcard.
Despite Thomilo44’s lack of prior knowledge about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he managed to create a postcard that was well-received by his girlfriend and fellow fans. The creation of the postcard is a heartwarming story that highlights how passionate the Animal Crossing community is for the latest entry in the series.
Hope for the Future
Some villagers from prior Animal Crossing games are still missing, so Nintendo may want to bring these beloved characters back for future Animal Crossing entries. Hopefully, Shino is among one of the returning villagers in the next Animal Crossing entry since she’s one of the most popular characters in the series thus far.
In conclusion, the heartwarming surprise from Shino, inspired by a caring boyfriend’s creativity, reminds us of the deep connection and joy that the Animal Crossing: New Horizons community shares. The game continues to captivate players worldwide, even years after its release, and stories like these highlight the impact it has on its fans’ lives.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
