Nintendo is great in terms of offering the best titles on its popular Switch console. However, the developer can sometimes be a little weird in its approach of how it approaches the content created by the fans in its games.

One such incident happened recently with an Animal Crossing: New Horizons player who completely lost her beloved in-game island because of a weird reason. Nintendo removed their island as it involved a surprising crossover featuring tech giant Apple. Well, that sounds a little strange, right?

According to the YouTuber, she made an island called Moon Velvet 1.0 on her dream address in ACNH. She posted a gameplay clip from this island a year ago, featuring a location where she had built a place entirely dedicated to Apple. That’s because she’s a hardcore fan of the iPhone maker and wanted to bring her favorite tech brand and favorite game together.

As you can see in the video, from a backup shared by ceomg, she made a stunning Apple Store. It featured all the products like the iPhones, Apple Watches, MacBook laptops, and even the monitors, representing the iMac line-up.

Alongside the store, the YouTuber also built a proper Apple Cafe with the classic rainbow logo of the company. You can also notice a board by the side of the cafe, with a rainbow ring logo referring to the spaceship-like Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California.

Well, this entire crossover made by her was perhaps the exact reason why Nintendo deleted her old island address. According to her, the Mario maker probably didn’t like the branding of another company in their game. Probably that’s why ceomg lost her island forever in ACNH.
