The Island Tour Creator is 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. It was opened on March 24, 2021, and it is available until the end of 2021.
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.
When creating a poster, the user chooses their island name and a screenshot from New Horizons.[nb 1] One of eight borders is then chosen, and the image can be zoomed in and moved around within the border; each border also has two color options. 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, the poster will be available for download. It can also be shared on Twitter from the website.
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. The video features narration based on the chosen features. It can be downloaded or shared on Twitter from the website.
