Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been out on Switch for less than two weeks, but players are already creating incredible custom builds. We recently showed off a recreation of Koholint Island from Link’s Awakening, and today we have another Zelda map. This build, courtesy of Redditor VaynMaanen, is a recreation of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

This is a fantastic build that might even surpass the last one! It’s especially impressive when viewing the two maps side by side. Iconic locales like Kakariko Village, Death Mountain, and Lake Hylia are all easy to spot, and Blathers’ museum serves as a stand-in for Hyrule Castle. You can feast your eyes on the map comparison below:

More to come

Overall, this A Link to the Past Hyrule build took “four grueling days of terraforming,” which is certainly quicker than I’d expect. That said, it’s not really “complete,” as VaynMaanen is still making tweaks and improvements every day. They are also considering hosting a video tour of the island in the future. Until then, you can peruse more up close and personal screenshots on the build’s imgur page.
