One creative Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has transformed their island into a re-creation of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

In a series of images originally posted on Imgur, we can see a variety of iconic locations from A Link to the Past, including Kakariko Village and Hyrule Castle.


Here, you can see that this villager used terraforming to create Death Mountain and the Waterfall of Wishing.

The Eastern Palace is complete with dirt and stone paths, and the Desert of Mystery is decorated with a handful of dinosaur bones.

There’s also a re-creation of the starting point in A Link to the Past – Link’s house.

Finally, to get the full scale of this project, you can take a look at the entire map to see just how closely it resembles A Link to the Past’s version of Hyrule, along with the original map for comparison, below.

Along with video games like The Legend of Zelda, New Horizons players are re-creating tons of iconic movie moments on their deserted islands. Some players are using the washed-up sailor Gulliver to re-create a memorable scene from The Lighthouse. Other Animal Crossing players are re-creating moments from Midsommar, The Shining, The Blair Witch Project, and more.
