Someone's enthusiasm for ACNH has reached an entirely new level

  • In comparison to when it first launched, ACNH bells kopen isn't quite as culturally significant today; instead, it appears that Among Us is the game that's at the forefront of everyone's thoughts and YouTube viewing lists. 

    Many dedicated fans, however, continue to enjoy Nintendo's island vacation, and the internet is still brimming with people willing to show their support with incredible projects like this homemade Spooky Arch. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan community is definitely more of a treat this Halloween than it is a trick.

    A dedicated fan has recreated the Spooky Arch from Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the real world, which will be used as a Halloween decoration this year by a dedicated fan. The arch is just one of the many new features being added to Nintendo's beloved life simulation game in preparation for Halloween. However, with the variety of costumes and decorations on display, this month's spooky festivities are sure to go down in Animal Crossing's annals of gaming history.

    Of course, that can be said about the entire game as well. When it was released in March, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was hailed as a critical and commercial success. In light of the increasing number of COVID-19 restrictions, many people have turned to the game's beautiful depiction of tranquil island life as a treasured form of escapism. It wasn't long before Animal Crossing's charming anthropomorphic animal villagers became a huge hit with fans, prompting the creation of an absurd economic system based on the acquisition of villagers for fans' islands. Even presidential candidate Joe Biden has taken notice, opening up his own island to encourage fans to cast their ballots in the upcoming election.

    Someone's enthusiasm for free ACNH bells has reached an entirely new level. A Spooky Arch decoration from Animal Crossing's Halloween event was shared on Reddit by user TheManRoomGuy. It's important to note that this is not a screenshot from the game; rather, this Spooky Arch is a real-life decoration that was set up in front of a real-life house. When it came to recreating the decoration, TheManRoomGuy went above and beyond, including precise placement of lights and jack-o-lanterns. He even went above and beyond in terms of decoration by including the spectral tulle fabric draping that adorned the arch. 

    Throughout the year, Animal Crossing fan creations such as this one have been incredibly popular. However, the majority of them are fanart or islands in-game that have been lavishly decorated. Only a few fan projects have the ability to transcend the internet and become real-world structures. However, Halloween is a great time to experiment with new physical works, and this isn't the first time the adorable island life game has served as inspiration for some spooktacular seasonal decorations.
