New York Islanders fans are showing off their love for their team over Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a wildly popular new game for the Nintendo Switch.

Ever play a video game that allowed you to wear a New York Islanders jersey in the game? Ever wish you could take it a step further and completely deck out your character in Islanders gear from head-to-toe?

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch you can do just that and Islanders fans are going nuts with it.

If you’ve never heard of the game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has you play a completely customizable character that is essentially developing a deserted island. You can also decorate just about anything in the game.

As you can imagine, Islanders fans are taking the opportunity to make everything Isles related as possible in the game from jerseys to table cloths.

Banners and Jerseys

We’ve already seen what Islanders fans will do to their real-world homes. Islanders memorabilia can be seen hanging from every available space. The same is true in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Not only is this character dressed in all-Isles gear but the walls are orange and the floors are blue. And it doesn’t stop there the table has an Isles table-cloth, the chairs have Isles logo upholstery and the retired numbers are hanging from the walls.

This fan has four custom Josh Bailey Isles jerseys as part of their collection. You don’t feel like wearing white? How about a Brooklyn black (a personal favorite of mine)?

This last one isn’t for everyone because it features the most polarizing subject for our fanbase; the Fisherman jersey. This fan did their best (I think they did a great job) to re-create the Fisherman jersey in the game. If you don’t like the Fisherman jersey, at least you might like that it’s a Ziggy Palffy jersey?
