One Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has created a secret Gyroid fight club in jock villager Peewee’s house. 

Shared to the Animal Crossing dedicated subreddit, one player posted a video of Peewee’s requested "elite sports gym" however not all is as it seems as the camera pans around and reveals a "totally not illegal Gyroid boxing ring." 

This very clever design features climbing walls, a water cooler, a punching bag - oh and a couple of partition walls which disguise the potentially unethical fight club. What makes this design so good though is the pro wrestling match wallpaper and shady Gyroid manning the table at the entrance sitting next to a bag of bells. 

We’ve seen a number of amazing designs made in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Happy Home Paradise DLC recently, with some of our other favourites being Pippy’s 7/11 store - which featured all of the real-life convenience store branding in it - as well as the other player who utilised the custom polish effects tool in the interior design expansion adding Soot Sprites to a house similar to Satsuki and Mei’s home from My Neighbor Totoro.  

In more positive Gyroid news, following the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.04 update - which fixed the naked villager glitch - Gyroid fragments have begun washing up on island beaches, making it even easier to pick them up every day. What should you do with all the Gyroids you find, you ask? Why not create a Gyroid model village for them to retire in once their boxing careers have come to an end?

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.
