Sonic the Hedgehog fans have been turning their creativity to Nintendo’s ultra popular Animal Crossing New Horizons – check out our favourite designs and customisations below!
1. Welcome to the Green Hill Zone!
@NigelLievaart on Twitter has gone all out with his Green Hill Zone village, complete with palm trees, checkerboard paving, and even a star post! Congrats on your sub 30-second speed run as well…

If you want to download the custom designs for the paving, you can do so here!
This heterochromatic scientist cat has won the adoration of many Animal Crossing fans, and even omnitalented Sonic artist Nibrock, who has given him a Sonic the Hedgehog-esque makeover.
Maybe he would give Tails a run for his money as Sonic’s new sidekick?
3. Movie Night
@Mr_Gurin has created an impressive outdoor cinema – which happens to be showing the greatest movie of all time. Needs a chillidog stand and some doughnuts though.
we're going to watch the sonic movie tonight on my island

4. Watch out! You’re gonna crash! Ahhh!
Visiting friends on their island is great (besides the long loading times), and its great to get a bird’s eye view as you fly in…but rather disconcertigly @Ruki185 has elected to place this large canvas floor painting on the fly path. I guess Wilbur should take that chaos emerald out of the seaplane engine…
5. Froggy Villagers
You might have spent hours hunting for a frog with a weird tail in ponds around your island (if you are, you might want to check you’re not a robot). If you’ve still not found one, or just love Big’s best buddie, how about wandering around in this fetching cap and shirt instead, replicas of the shop items from the Team Sonic Racing shorts? Follow the link for the code to download them yourself. Great work @ghostweeps!

6. A Genuine Work of Art
Our very own Dreadknux has also put his brush to canvas, and created this snazzy portrait of Sonic himself. Perhaps one for the dining room! Remember though, his name is not Quaid.

7. Maria, You Gotta See Her
@megu_art_ has re-imagined the island experience, in which you play Maria and interact with AC-themed villagers. We know we would spend hundreds of hours digging up Master Emerald shards on the beach…

Maria is the human villager

They have even gone as far as to create a whole host of character models!

8. Kit Out Your Wardrobe
Aaron Hammerstron has been super busy crafting some awesome custom items in Animal Crossing – and not just Sonic-themed either! We are loving the Eggman shirt and the Sonic the comic design – and we will definitely be customising some magazines with those later!
Hey everyone! I've got some designs for you all! Some Sonic, some Pokemon, and some other miscellaneous stuff too, lol#AnimalCrossing #ACNH #NintendoSwitch #AnimalCrossingDesigns pic.twitter.com/YFGJBfh3sV

This one made us laugh! Art.

10. A Spring in your step
This Sonic spring hat by @S41tySn4ck has some phenomenal shading work on it! Definitely one to bounce around the island with.
We want a barrel of doom next.

11. Move Over K.K. Slider
Youtuber SuperMilltendo has created this handy youtube guide to retuning your town anthem to be more Sonical…here are 18 Sonic-themed songs and the notes you will need!
12. I AM THE E.G.G.M.A.N.
We’ve seen hundreds of takes on the Eggman outfit designed by fans in Animal Crossing New Horizons, but Marc Knelsen was one of the first to get take his photo with Mabel, AC’s resident blue hedgehog. The moustache makes it for us.
