This week’s upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ update is bringing a slew of new features to the game on March 18th, but Nintendo has an additional surprise in store for next week, too.

According to Nintendo’s website, the Island Tour Creator will launch on March 23rd as a “limited-time web service currently planned to be available until the end of this year,” allowing players to create a poster and trailer based on their islands using screenshots and footage they have captured on the Nintendo Switch. The new tool is designed to let you “share your favorite spots on your island or commemorate sentimental scenes to show off what makes your personal island so special.”

The official Animal Crossing Twitter shared an example of what this might look like:



With the game turning a year old this week, many players have had lots of time to perfect and personify their islands. It’ll be exciting to see the results of fans’ yearlong island adventures reach Twitter timelines when the Island Tour Creator launches next week!
