Since Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched in March, we’ve seen fans bringing all kinds of innovative ideas to the island-set life simulation games. From the wilds of Hyrule to the terrifying locales of your favorite horror movies, players have been using their own passions to expand the world of the beloved game. But a Twitter user has upped the creative ante by bringing the world of Harry Potter and more specifically, the hallowed halls of Hogwarts to the newest iteration of Animal Crossing.
I made the Harry Potter Hogwarts Common rooms in ACNH~ ⚡️🦁🐍🦡🦅 It took a very long time haha. Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff respectively. Which do you like best? pic.twitter.com/uixZwKzA9K— capsulebunny acnh (@capsulebutt) April 13, 2020
As these gorgeous stills show, the player crafted each of the Hogwarts houses’ common rooms with an incredible amount of care and detail. Their vision for Gryffindor is just as cozy and warm as you’d imagine, stacked to the rafters with books, bookcases, and delightfully ornate (but sturdy) furniture. Slytherins will surely be happy with the cute but creepy aesthetic she crafted for them with a common room that has just the right amount of skeletons, familiars, and of course that iconic green. Hufflepuff has always been about being welcoming to all and this sweet abode is perfect—delectable baked goods, cute critters, and overstuffed furnishings make the room a total delight. In a competition for most magical though, surely the star-studded walls of Ravenclaw would win. And we’re obsessed with that crystal ball!
If these incredible creations have inspired you to bring the magic of Hogwarts and the wizarding world of Harry Potter to your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island, then you’re in luck. CHILLCOMPIL has put together this radical video compiling all kinds of Harry Potter QR codes. These codes will allow you to represent your favorite house with robes, sweaters, and more for Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw! There are even outfits inspired by your favorite teachers and some art for your island home.
We adore both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Harry Potter, so this fandom mashup was made for us. The relaxing island life of the popular Nintendo Switch game mixed with the glittering and nostalgic magic of one of our favorite book series is almost too much joy to handle!
