Twitter user Tsukimaro has an interesting project: bringing the classic Studio Ghibli anime Spirited Away to life in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

As Sora News points out, the movie’s scenes have been recreated in amazing detail. There are limitations to what can be created in New Horizons, but Tsukimaro’s clever workarounds make the whole thing even more charming.

Below are screenshots of Tsukimaro’s work, and if you’ve seen Spirited Away, you should be able to follow the movie’s plot points:


Tsukimaro hasn’t finished her Spirited Away recreation quite yet, and she’s been updating her Twitter on a regular basis.


But her next entry will be the last one in the series.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

I love that people are able to create such amazing things in Animal Crossing but I have to constantly remind myself that I don’t really like playing Animal Crossing.
