- A fan-created Animal Crossing sequel concept called “Discovery Cruise” introduces a cruise ship as a central location, with islands acting as external social hubs.
- The cruise ship in Discovery Cruise would dock at existing customized islands from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, allowing players to claim those islands as their own by paying bells.
- Trade and exchange of items would be a central theme in the sequel concept, with ports available for players to interact and visit each other’s ships and islands.
In the original Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players arrive at the island by seaplane. However, this sequel idea would introduce a cruise ship to the island chains, providing a fresh and unique setting.
Unlike previous Animal Crossing titles that focused on building and maintaining a village, Animal Crossing: New Horizons shifted the focus to building a vacation island. This concept has been further expanded with the addition of multiple islands in the Happy Home Paradise DLC. The “Discovery Cruise” sequel concept aims to build upon these existing islands, ensuring they are not abandoned.
Reddit user Amb97survivor shared their sequel concept, which revolves around a cruise ship as the central location. The cruise ship would dock at islands, including those already customized in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Players would have the opportunity to claim their favorite islands by paying a certain amount of bells. The cruise ship would also welcome new Animal Crossing characters daily, and rotating shops would offer various goods.
Trade and exchange of items would play a significant role in this sequel concept. Ports would be available for players to interact and visit each other’s ships and islands, creating a vibrant and social experience. The online aspect of the game would allow Animal Crossing fans to explore and trade with each other.
Gulliver, a familiar character in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, would take on the role of the ship’s captain in “Discovery Cruise.” Tom Nook, the iconic character in the series, would own the cruise ship and various islands that players can visit. Amb97survivor’s sequel concept also allows players to choose five characters and five shops to become permanent residents on the cruise ship.
This unique sequel concept would give players the opportunity to create their dream cruise ships, just like they could customize islands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With the immense success of the game, a genuine sequel is highly anticipated. While Amb97survivor’s concept focuses on cruise ships, it remains uncertain what a potential official sequel would look like.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently available for the Nintendo Switch.
