Calling all Animal Crossing and Super Mario Maker 2 fans, you do NOT want to miss this! To celebrate the imminent launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo Players UK have a special Mario Maker assignment for you.

Are your stylus fingers twitching yet? If so, read ahead for more details!

Nook Inc. recently approached NPUK asking for a new level that is inspired by their upcoming Deserted Island Package. They are allowing some creative freedom, your island could have a dense jungle or a spooky ghost house… it could even have a volcano! As long as it makes sense, the shareholders of Nook Inc. will be happy.

What is very important however is that your level should have some sort of clear condition inspired by the various activities from previous Animal Crossing ventures. Will you do a spot of fishing underwater with some Cheep Cheeps? Go on a scavenger hunt in a spooky little hut? Or have a Goomba stomping festival in the forest in the night?

Oh, did we also mention that, for this commission, the voting procedure has changed and is open to the whole of the UK? Now the respective communities get to decide which of their levels go to the national vote… how’s that for New Horizons!

The top three creators from around the UK will bag themselves a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons as well as a nifty goodie bag (all of which will be delivered AFTER 20th March 2020).

For full details on the competition and how to enter, give NPUK a visit and get on creating… you only have until the 28th February to submit your level!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
