Happy Animal Crossing: New Horizons release day! Everyone around the world can now charter a flight to a deserted island of their choice and build a little slice of paradise.

To commemorate the occasion, producer Hisashi Nogami created a digital piece of Tom Nook and his nephews, Timmy and Tommy, welcoming all to the wonderful world of Animal Crossing. Even better, we get to see a timelapse of the drawings — from sketch to signature!


You can’t escape the Nook family, so don’t be surprised if you see this video all across Nintendo’s social media channels today — yes, yes.
