Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become a phenomenon in just a few months of its release. It took Nintendo 8 years to release New Horizons after the last Animal Crossing. But it has been a roaring success since its release in March.

It was only a matter of time before other business entities drew from its success.
IKEA Taiwan has recreated its exemplary catalog using characters, themes, and items from the Nintendo game.
Animal Crossing has a simple and elegant design that makes imitation for a brand like IKEA is tough. This might not be a perfect prototype, but could be the start of something extraordinary. It won’t be long before other conglomerates do something similar.
IKEA has tried its best to match the theme of the game and use the colorful characters and their outfits.
The game gives you plenty of options to have distinct patterns and designs for interiors. Furthermore, it also gives you the freedom to search and look for designs in the Able Sisters shop.
This way, it represents a kind of virtual reality. Just as you look for interior design and furniture in real life, you do it in Animal Crossing too.
You get an option of crafting items for your house and this includes tables, chairs, and even your bed.
Just recently, companies like KFC and Konami stated an interest in the internet sensation Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Companies want characters to have their costume in the game.
