For whatever reason, there hasn’t been a proper Animal Crossing game on the Wii U yet. If there was, though, it could look a lot worse than this effort by TheBitBlock.

Be sure to skip past the intro; this is a lot more involved than some guy talking into a camera about his hopes and dreams. There are full-blown animated mock-ups of the stuff he’s imagined, like hot air balloons that are used to visit your friend’s towns and extensive use of the Wii U touchscreen to handle your inventory and design stuff.

Then there’s the stationery, the item design, the stickers, the visual upgrades...it’s not just stuff that sounds good as a fan checklist, but makes practical sense and seems like it could also have come from Nintendo themselves.

Especially the Pokemon balloons and Splatoon stickers. That’s very Nintendo circa 2015.
