Animal Crossing: New Horizons the past came into our lives March 20, and since then, it has become quite a phenomenon of masses that has allowed millions of players to form new friendships and unleash their creativity in every way imaginable, assuming, more than just a video game, a whole experience that has united the community in a common purpose: create a dream island.
So this time and after a good couple of hundred hours, we come to proudly share ours, Initia, whose name is inspired, of course, in the one in which Link grew up and where our adventure begins in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. So that, Let me be your humble guide on this unique paradise tour!
Before starting, yes, I want to clarify something, and that is when I talk about Initia is our island, what I want to express is that it is not only mine, but it is also that of my friends, since in and of itself, each and every one of the areas that you will see below were born as a result of their advice, their creativity and their support.
Because the ultimate goal of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where its spirit lies, is not only that of having a beautiful island full of fantastic neighbors, but that of to be able to enjoy it with your loved ones, those with whom you share the experience of playing day after day. Thus, this island is dedicated to Melissa, Alex, Carla, Paula, Felipe, Samuel, Alberto, Eva, Zero as well as the rest of the people who have ever set foot on it, either to greet, or to trade, talk with a neighbor or just to hang out. Thank you all for being part of my island.
As you can see, Initia is divided into a northern part, much more rural, where there is a park, the camping area and a forest full of pine trees, fruits, as well as some other surprises. On the other hand we have the southern part, where both the houses of our neighbors are located, in addition to the various shops. Thus, all of this is connected by a small square in the center of the island which serves as nerve center of it, since in it the different events that take place in it are carried out, such as concerts, picnics, the game of chairs …
However, let's start at the beginning, and what better place to start talking about than… The camping area! And is it not, do you think it is an extremely pleasant place for the new tenants of the island to get a good first impression? Surrounded by pine trees, bushes, and with a small lake to fish in, here we can call our favorite neighbors making use of amiibo cards that we have. Also, on certain days even new random visitors will come, so who knows … Maybe luck smiles on us and we stop with our new best friend! In fact, in the photo above everything seems to indicate that we have a visit … Um, who will it be? We leave it to your imagination!
Then, the next logical step is to tell you about Park, a recreational space that is located in the center of the island, occupying its upper level. There we can find the source, one of the most important elements of any self-respecting island, in addition to … Wait a minute! Is that there a live and direct combat between a combat robot and a monster?! Certainly… What a place they have chosen to start fighting!
Following on the right, we find a pine road that hides the odd secret in its nooks and crannies (has anyone else seen a kolog out there? …), and if we follow it, it will take us to a lush forest full of all kinds of fruit that we can find in the game!
Without a doubt, if we want to get fed to eat to carry out any other project that requires additional effort, this is the ideal place to recharge and face any challenge more prepared than ever. After all, you can't work well on an empty stomach!
So, the time has come to talk about Square, a central piece of the island that connects its various areas and, as we mentioned before, a place where we carry out all kinds of events. For example, during the cherry season we were able to enjoy a picnic the sea of cuckoo, And this week we celebrate a massive concert with all kinds of instruments! The truth is that it cannot be said that it reaches the sole of Totakeke's shoes when it comes to music, but hey … At least the intention was there!
"But look what a beautiful outfit the Little Hand Sisters have today!" Yeah that's what I think every day every time I visit commercial zone and I am about to spend a good handful of berries, and that is that with the offer they have Pili and Mili
Of course, the islands have many other attractions, and yes, it is not bad to try to decipher the authenticity of what they sell us Ladino on your speakeasy, or spend time in the museum with the good of Socrates and its collections of all kinds … However, for me the best activity of all comes on Saturdays, and that is that those days we will be lucky since a Totakeke concert ipso facto will be waiting for us!
Also, delving into the residential area, I must confess that I have developed a kind of obsession, since … I can't stop visiting my neighbors! And who knows, maybe when I least expect it, they will surprise me with the odd improvised recipe or a chascarrillo that makes me laugh out loud. Oh, What majetes they are all!
Finally, those that could well be remain to be taught the most special places within the island: beaches. With a very careful aesthetic taking advantage of various furniture as well as the function of share and use designs of other players, we have as a result places of leisure to which both the insulans and the neighbors can go to relax after days full of homework. It is quite an experience!
And having said that, it was all on our part! Despite all that we have been playing, the truth is that we still have many ideas to carry out, and we do not doubt that these will add in number as the game receives more and more free updates periodically. Why Animal Crossing: New Horizons It is a game whose limit lies solely in our creativity, and for that reason, it will always be more alive than ever.
See you soon for Initia, iGamesNews!
