Brands have continued to release new designs for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Most of the designs so far have been for branded clothing or unique designs. Japanese jewelry brand Tasaki has a new unique way to bring custom accessories into the game by using designs.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players can customize their villager with hats, glasses, outfits, tops, bottoms, socks, and shoes. With the base game alone, players have many design options available to them. However, the game doesn’t include additional accessories like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or piercings unless a custom design is made. Some items can only be worn one at a time and can’t be stacked together.
Tasaki’s designs utilize the limitations of Animal Crossing. The brand created multiple tops and dresses with simple colors but complex jewelry. The designs range from diamonds, gold, pearls, and more. The company released a total of six designs that can be worn by anyone.
The company has released the design IDs on Twitter, along with its creator code for easier downloading. Players will need to have the Able Sisters building on their island, an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription, and room in their custom design collection to download the designs.

Tasaki’s designs are related to two themes: balance and comet. The balance designs use a solid color clothing item to make the jewelry stand out. The comet design combines both a unique comet design along with a piece of jewelry.
Tasaki is based in Japan and was founded in 1954. The company now has major subsidiaries set up across the globe. Besides releasing beautiful jewelry, the company provides its own pearls from farms in Japan and Myanmar. All of their products are created in-house.
Since the spread of COVID-19, many companies are using the popular game Animal Crossing: New Horizons to brand out to existing and new companies. Since customers can’t easily visit a company in-person anymore, companies are using the game to entice customers online using free designs.
Other companies have taken it a step forward by decorating their entire island in themed content, such as KFC Phillippines, or tourist companies hoping to bring a travel destination virtually to potential customers.
One of the most recent releases from a major company were three designs from The Weather Channel. The designs included the official logo, a branded hat, and a branded blue poncho that’s similar to what weather forecasters on the channel wear.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
