Animal Crossing has never, and probably will never, be an RPG series but these gorgeous illustrations from Camila Cumplido (chiisao on Twitter) really make me want a turn-based RPG with Isabelle as a mage, Timmy and Tommy as Swordfighters, and perhaps K.K. Slider as a lonely ol’ bard.
As you can see in her tweet below, Camila has reimagined several fan-favorite characters from Nintendo’s life sim franchise and the images have gotten tons of attention from die-hard Nintendo fans, including myself:

A twitter user even asked Camila if they plan on creating other renditions of Animal Crossing characters, such as Blathers or Celeste:

The latest entry in the Animal Crossing series, New Horizons, will be launching for the Nintendo Switch on March 20, 2020. Nintendo recently announced that a special edition Animal Crossing-themed Nintendo Switch will be coming out to commemorate the launch of the title but it won’t come included with the game.
Last week there was a jam-packed Animal Crossing Direct that revealed tons of new information and there was even a strange gravestone in the presentation that concerned some fans.
