If you’re a regular reader of Music Ally, you may have spotted that we have some Animal Crossing fans on the team.
We’ve seen a couple of music marketing campaigns make use of the latest version of the game, Nintendo Switch title Animal Crossing: New Horizons – pop artist Alice Chater turning her music video outfits into in-game clothing for fans to wear, for example.
Now Billboard has news of how Japanese group Mrs. Green Apple celebrated their fifth anniversary by creating an Animal Crossing island themed around their career so far.

“Over 10,000 fans applied for a chance to become one of the 30 visitors allowed to explore Mrs. Island for a limited time. The lucky players were able to check out the CD jackets of all of the band’s releases as well as the members’ apparel from the official photos from each era, tucked into each house designed to match those photos,” it explained.
The codes for the fashion designs have also been released for fans who didn’t get to visit:
・「5 COMPLETE BOX」
・『5』Limited Edition Tシャツ
