Animal Crossing Island Recreates Iconic Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Scene

With this island design, you can almost pretend Ocarina of Time is playable on the Switch.


Now that hedges have been added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a whole load of new designs are now possible for island landscaping--including this iconic location from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A Twitter user has recreated the Hyrule Castle garden where Link and Zelda first meet, complete with the hedged garden, statues, and a nice little surprise at the end.

Japanese Twitter user @penpen_0907 posted a video of the intricate Animal Crossing design, saying it was their favorite place in the Zelda series, and that they were planning to add more details to the scene, including the patrolling troops.

The recreation is so spot-on that you'll start hearing the scene's iconic music in your head the second the video starts playing.

This isn't the first Zelda-themed island to have gone viral since the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch. One player made their island into an exact replica of the Zelda: Link To The Past map, while others have recreated scenes from Pokemon, and made a crossover with another of this year's big games, the Final Fantasy 7 remake.
