To celebrate the Nintendo release, YouTuber Nikachu has introduced another Among Us crossover. He took the ‘Best Mobile Game of The Year’ and added it to the best Nintendo Switch game of the year. Nikachu recreated Among Us in Animal Crossing New Horizons in a recent video.

The recreation is meant as a tribute to the award-winning game and not to replicate it. Therefore, Nikachu took some creative liberty as he tried to bring the fan-favorite game to life on his island.

The makeover requires a lot of labor, but apart from the hours it is something most players can do. All one needs is the right materials including floor, carpets, fences, and a few decorative items for the job. The recreation can not be as interactive as earlier crossovers. However, the ACNH touch will make for an aesthetic addition to one’s island.

Nikachu cleared out a large space, approximately one that could fit 20 houses for the job. He added an iron-stone fence to enclose the area where he would build the Skeld map. He then changed the whole flooring to grey stones and divided the interior using the stone wall. The YouTuber was trying to recreate the greyscale vibe that one can feel in the Skeld map.

After the structure of the map was ready, Nikachu laid down carpets to enhance the theme of the creation. He went with a black carpet with white stripes to match the outer space theme of Among Us maps. Finally, he added custom items such as wires and personal tasks. A few of the tasks were similar to the game while he added the rest according to his own touch.
