Animal Crossing Player designs original Nook’s Canny for Tom Nook

An Animal Crossing player has recreated the design of the original Nook’s Cranny seen on GameCube, made possible with Happy Home Paradise DLC.

An Animal Crossing: New Horizons the player has recreated the original Nook’s Cranny from the 2001 GameCube version of the game, which adds some nostalgia to the 2020 Nintendo Switch release. This is just one of the many possible designs that players can create using the tools in the recently released Crossing animals Happy Home Paradise DLC, and highlights the almost endless creative possibilities offered by the latest part of the beloved series.

Nook’s Cranny has undergone many changes over the course of Crossing animals franchise. 2001 Nook’s Cranny started as a very humble shop run only by Tom Nook, whereas in New Horizons, the store is in the hands of Timmy and Tommy. In previous games, Nook’s Cranny could eventually be upgraded to a multi-storey department store called Nookington’s. However, this is not the case in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as Nook’s Cranny can only be upgraded once. While many were hoping for a multi-story Nook’s Cranny on Switch, ACNH has received its last major update and it does not look like the store will receive any further upgrades.

Using Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Happy Home Paradise DLC, Reddit user HugeAccountant has recreated the original Nook’s Cranny for Tom Nook. It has all the same details as the original 2001 store, from the pots in the corner to all the goodies that Tom Nook sells. Aside from tools, furniture and flower seeds, the store also has clothes and even umbrellas, and Tom Nook stands in the middle of it all and successfully captures the mood of his humble origins.

As one of the most recognizable buildings in Crossing animals, fans have made many different iterations of Nook’s Cranny over the years, not only in the game but also in real life. A fan turned their son’s playhouse into ACNH‘s Nook’s Cranny, while others have recreated the building with LEGO and even used it as inspiration for custom Nintendo Switch docks. Whether it’s in the game or real life, fans have found many ways to pay tribute to Tom Nook’s store.

While store upgrades for Animal Crossing: New Horizons was found in databiner, it seems that the idea may have been scrapped by Nintendo. The fully upgraded Nookington’s sets in previous games offered a wide range of items, including the GracieGrace store in Animal Crossing: New Leaf who sold expensive clothes and furniture. Nook’s Cranny ind Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not as big as Nookingtons, but through designing in ACNHs Happy Home Paradise, it is possible for fans to pay tribute with their creative builds. At the very least, such constructions could reclaim the same atmospheres as the original shops and would be a way for the nostalgic designs to find a way to Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
