A fan of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons creates an amazing watch face inspired by the life simulator’s resident secretary, Isabelle.
Two years have passed since the Life Sim title. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released in 2020. Fans of the game will likely still remember logging into their deserted island every day and listening to Isabelle’s morning announcements once they’ve unlocked the special villager. Now, two years later, fans are still in love with the Animal Crossing: New Horizons special villager, and one even made an amazing clock based on the character.
Isabelle’s character rose to online popularity when she was first introduced as the player’s secretary in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS. Since then, Isabelle has been seen in a variety of different media, be it in other video game titles such as Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and even in original pieces of art or content created by fans of the character. Even though the game is over two years old, the community’s love and adoration for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Dog Villager doesn’t seem to shrink, and will likely continue to grow over time.
On Reddit, a fan of Animal Crossing: New Horizons they had a clever way of showing their love for Isabelle. Redditor nekomichi shared an image of how Isabelle was added as a face on his Apple Watch. The creator gave the watch face some interactive features as it shows Isabelle saying the current time and the watch wearer’s city location. Fans will likely appreciate how this feature will remind them of Isabelle’s daily updates and announcements each time she launches her island. Nekomichi also added a comment to the thread so fellow Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans will be able to implement the face on their own Apple watches.
Co-worker ACNH fans greatly appreciated nekomichi’s work, with some sharing that they are saving the information the artist gave even though they don’t have an Apple Watch. Others were also asking if there was any way to implement the watch face for Android users. Unfortunately, the artist has not been able to work on one for the Android operating system. However, positive feedback from the online community indicates that Animal Crossing: New Horizons Isabelle really does have a dedicated and loving fan base.
Nekomichi has also created Apple Watch faces for other video game titles such as the Fall series, and more. Hopefully this isn’t the last time he’s worked on video game Apple Watch faces, and makes more based on other Animal Crossing: New Horizons special villagers.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on Nintendo Switch.
