If you're like me, you're probably spending wayyyy too much time in Animal Crossing. But honestly, is there really such a thing?

Aside from protecting us from the apocalyptic hell of the real world, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is also chock full of thoughtful, little details that you notice the more you play. So we gathered some of our absolute favorite observations of the adorable stuff that make the world and the villagers who populate it feel so alive.


Of course, you can't really "spoil" Animal Crossing per se. But some people might want to find all this magic themselves on their own time.

1. You can has pet turtles :)

Not only can you catch a snapping turtle (if you're lucky), but you can actually KEEP THEM AS PETS!! Well, OK, only kinda. I'm not sure the turtles know or even like being viewed as your "pet." But if you display them in your house or around your village, they just stand there with no water tank, hanging out, being cutie little lugs. 

Hot tip: Press A near your snapping turtle to get some, uh, love I guess!

One Redditor even claims that their villager was reading to one said pet turtle, though it might just look that way in the shot.

Just don't think too long about the philosophical and ethical conundrum that comes with keeping animals as pets when your island is populated by sentient human-animals.

2. Villagers will rock the fuck out with you

You might've noticed that your villagers sing every now and again. But their musical talents are far more wide-sweeping.

If you give them the right setup, they'll take to the mic and put on a full-on concert for you. Yas, thank you, Audie! Keep the spirit of the music concert scene alive during lockdown!

Perhaps best of all, though, if you choose to join their singalongs by playing an instrument nearby, your villagers will actively move closer for moral support and to get syncopated with the beat you're laying down.

That's not all, either. A specific villager named Beau can be caught yodeling in her house. Another was found to stop midway through singing and seemingly...checking her phone for the lyrics she forgot?

3. They take selfies too! (And feel bad about it, just like you!)

Generally speaking, we highly recommend you take the time to observe your villagers' habits, since they all have their own adorably unique qualities and activities. That's how you'll catch golden moments like this, when Raymond snapped a selfie of himself before wincing at the result.

We feel you, Raymond! But post it! Feel cute, maybe delete later!

They'll also snap pics of things they like, which makes us wonder if there's an Animal Crossing version of Instagram.

4. Isabelle also does all sorts of cute things

Sadly, Tom Nook seems to keep Isabelle trapped in a never-ending 24-hour workday. Unionize Isabelle — you deserve basic human rights.

But in the meantime, everyone's favorite assistant can often be seen toiling away the hours of her endless shift in the most adorable ways. She'll exercise in the afternoon, chug coffee at night, sniff the flowers on her desk, accidentally fall asleep in the chair directly across from her boss.

Perhaps cutest of all, though: She looks out the window to catch meteor showers whenever one is happening on your island. Urgh. She's perfect. Never change, Isabelle. (But do look into unionizing, please, this is not OK.)

5. Villagers who moved out can show up on your friends' islands

This one boggled our minds, though it's actually not new to New Horizons and also happened in previous Animal Crossing games as well.

Sometimes if your villager moves out from your island, they don't just disappear into the Animal Crossing ether. They can actually wind up on your friends' islands, and will give your island a shoutout when explaining where they moved from!

And if you go visit them in their new place on your friend's island, they'll also remember you! Because no matter how long it's been, your Animal Crossing villagers do not forget you
