With Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s new Island Tour Creator, players can finally show off their islands in a more official-looking capacity by letting you create customizable posters and trailers from your phone. You don’t even have to download an app. You can also add your Dream Address to your creations if you’d like other people to visit your dream island.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent over 400 hours working on my island. There’s a reason Animal Crossing: New Horizons on our list of the best Nintendo Switch games. After all that work, I’m excited for a new way to show everything off. Unfortunately, the service is a little convoluted, but I’m here to step you through the process.
Now all of your friends and family can see the cute poster you’ve made for your island. If you want help making a trailer, continue on to the next section.
How to make a trailer
You can make a customized trailer that shows off specific areas of your island. It will include a voice-over and gorgeous animations, although you don’t get to choose exactly what gets said or what animations get used. Here’s how to do it.
- Tap on the Trailer icon.
Tap up to three features to show off on your island.
- Select Next.
Tap Upload for each of the features you’ve previously selected.
- Choose a picture from your library.
When all possible picture slots have been filled, tap Next.
- Tap Next again.
Choose the image you’d like to use as your video thumbnail.
- Tap Next.
Select the tagline words you’d like associated with your video.
- Select Next.
If you’d like to, you can now enter your island’s Dream Address. If you don’t want to do that, tap Continue without Dream Address.
- Tap Next in the app.
The app will now ask you if you are happy with your video. If you are, press Yep!
- Now Nook will tell you that he’s busy working on your video. Tap Send URL via email to make sure you get the video when it finishes.
When the trailer has finished uploading, you can share it to Twitter by pressing Send Tweet.
The service adds some fun animations and the official voice-over lady from the Animal Crossing announcement videos for a really cool effect. It really makes your creation look like a Nintendo Direct announcement.
Let the tours begin
Now that you have some swanky new posters and trailers for your island, you can share them with family, friends, or others on social media so they can see your cool creations. If you include your Dream Address, it’ll also allow people to easily check out your dream island in person.
See what fun you can have with the Animal Crossing Island Tour Creator!
