It’s one of the most iconic opening sequences of all time. “Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang.” Fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender know Katara’s speech by heart. And now we can rejoice as it has been reimagined in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is just as cute and cool as you would expect.
Shared by YouTube channel The Nooksters (via Kotaku), this is an impressive re-creation of the beloved cartoon opening. Narrated by Katara, the clips showcase the history of the four nations in the cutesy guise of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. They capture every detail from the incredibly accurate costumes to the hilarious recreation of the action during the opening. We’re particularly enamored with just how well Aang’s goofiness fits into the island life of the game.
We’ve all been bingeing the awesome cartoon since it joined Netflix earlier in June, and this is a lovely combination of two of the things that have been bringing us a little happiness in the wilds of 2020. Plus it helps that it’s also just an incredible feat of creating things in Animal Crossing. Can you imagine how long it took to craft all those costumes and add in those super cute effects?!
There’s even more good news, too. You can bring the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender to your New Horizons island. The end of The Nookster’s awesome video displays a whole bunch of codes for costumes inspired by Aang, Katara, Toph, Zuko, and Sokka. Excuse us while we make an emergency trip to the Able Sisters.
