To mark the upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations, Redditor Pasuteru-Usagi shared the adorable life-simulation-themed illustration they’ve come up with. In the illustration, four Animal Crossing: New Horizons the villagers, namely Bunnie, Sasha, Ruby, and Genji, are seen dressed in kimonos and surrounded by Japanese-themed items. According to the artist, the illustration was created for the year of the rabbit, which will be 2023 according to the Chinese zodiac. This is likely why the four villagers featured in Pasuteru-Usagi’s piece are all bunny or bunny villagers that players can invite to reside on their island.

Friends fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons heaped compliments on the Redditor’s work, calling it cute or lovely. Some commented that they even had some of the stars Animal Crossing: New Horizons the villagers as residents in their game, while another pointed out that they were able to invite Ruby to live on their island just this January 1st.
