acnh logo

A brand new island for you to explore. Created in April 2023, updated August 2023

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a 2020 life simulation game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch games console. It has proved to be mega popular and one of the biggest selling video games of 2020 and beyond.

There are over 400 villagers in total to choose in the game, with various species and distinct personalities within these species, each with their own unique name, some of which includes names associated with the 80s, so we have created our own island, completely devoted to our favourite decade.

all80s is the name of our island, you can visit us using the following Dream Address-

We have started from scratch and created a brand new 80s island, all80s


It took us ages to get the ones we wanted, a lot of hours and NMT’s, but we managed it, we are happy to reveal all our non playable villagers related to The 1980s

We also have the following 80s related playable characters, this took some thought as we wanted to represent as much of the 80s as we could, you have the ability to name them yourself and build their homes and personality around this, some have actual 80s related names others have occupations to highlight 80s events or memories-
