The Island Tour Creator was a website where users can make posters and tour videos of their Animal Crossing: New Horizons island to share with others. The site was announced alongside information for the 1.9.0 Free Update.[1] It was opened on March 24, 2021, and it was available until the end of 2021.[2][3]

While an overview of the site's features can be viewed on desktop computers, posters and trailers can only be created on mobile devices. The use of the website requires a Nintendo Account.

Trailers[edit]

When creating a trailer, the user chooses their island name and up to three out of nine features to show in the trailer: Photo Op, Museum, Fashion, Events, Home, Items, Faves, Neighbors, and Scenery. Up to three screenshots or one video of at least 10 seconds is chosen for each feature,[nb 1] and a thumbnail image is chosen. The user then chooses a two-word tagline for their island using a predetermined list of words. The island's Dream Address can also optionally be added.

Once the steps are complete, a 62-second trailer will be created. At the start of the trailer, a title card will appear and an narrator starts the trailer by saying, "Thank you for your interest in our island. Please join us for a virtual tour of all it has to offer." The tagline and the island's name is displayed; below that, the text "Tour Guide" is shown.

The trailer's narration will differ based on the three features that the user has chosen.
