A fan has shown off their hard work in recreating the Stardew Valley town in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is still a work in progress.
Two games that would be a match made in heaven, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley are finally coming together thanks to one inventive fan. Both games involve managing animals and enjoying a slow-paced life surrounded by nature. Perhaps these similarities are why a player has built a Stardew Valley-inspired island in Animal Crossing.
Both Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley generally appeal to the same kind of gamers. The two games are incredibly popular, relaxed, and involve interacting with a slowly evolving environment. This is mostly due to the low barrier for entry and easy gameplay. In Stardew Valley, players inherit a farm from their grandfather on the outskirts of a town filled with interesting people. The gameplay mostly revolves around maintaining and growing the player’s farm and fighting monsters in the mines. In Animal Crossing, players are tasked with turning a deserted island into a thriving village filled with anthropomorphic creatures, designing the island however they wish. There is no urgency in either game, and both can be taken as slowly as players want.

Reddit user acnh_kaylee has posted a sneak peek at their island in Animal Crossing New Horizons, where they have been working on turning it into a Stardew Valley-themed home. Posted on the Animal Crossing subreddit, the video shows how the player has managed to recreate the entire town of Pelican Town from Stardew Valley, which is located next to the player’s farm in that game and is where the villagers live. The player has managed to condense all the buildings in the main area into the island space, making creative use of panels and signs to fill in some of the less homely looking buildings such as Pam’s trailer. The community center building has been replaced with the Museum and the evil JojoMart from Stardew Valley has been constructed with signs. According to the creative player behind this video, the main issue preventing them from getting the island right is the lack of QR space, needing more slots in order to add more details that they would like.
Most of the Stardew Valley village is not included as of yet, with the video above only being a work in progress. The right side of the river has not been finished, with Clint’s Blacksmith and the Museum still missing. Perhaps switching the museum currently in place of the community center with the town hall would be a good idea, ultimately it is up to the player for how they want to recreate the farming simulator.
Perhaps someday in the future, there will be a game that combines the best of both games. For now, players will have to make do with melding the worlds of Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley however they can.
