An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has found the perfect place to store their Gyroids by giving them their very own miniature village. 

In a video posted to the Animal Crossing subreddit, user bribri812 gives fellow fans a tour of their Gyroid Village which is made up of dolls houses, toy cars, and the stars of the attraction, the Gyroids themselves. To make the tour even more magical, the video was shot using the recently added Animal Crossing: New Horizons first-person camera, which makes us feel like we’re taking a leisurely stroll through the Gyroid neighborhood.

One clever detail we’ve spotted in the video is that this player has actually decorated the village with medium young trees to help with the perspective of the tiny village. According to the comments of the Reddit post, the player managed to keep the trees at their tiny size by planting them and then two days later putting a piece of fruit behind it as this obstructs the tree from growing any larger. 

Another subtle detail that makes all the difference is the color coordination going on between the Gyroids and their respective houses. You’ll notice the dark brown Gyroid matches up with the gothic purple and black house at the start of the tour and the pink, beige, orange, and blue Gyroids all following suit.

In other Animal Crossing: New Horizons-related news, we also recently discovered a highly detailed 7/11 convenience store recreation in Happy Home Paradise. It was also pointed out that resident scaredy-cat Wisp has become more generous since the 2.0 update, and that the villagers on your island are known to use Discord

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
