Get creative in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with these awesome codes

Imagination and creativity is key in Animal Crossing and players are often searching for ways to make their tropical island stand out when friends come to visit. Once you’ve finished landscaping and planting myriads of flowers, sometimes you need a little something extra to really wow your friends and villagers.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows fans to customise their island paradise in almost any way they see fit with in-game items and tools, but you don’t need to be limited by what the game gives you. That’s where QR codes and design codes come in handy. From exotic paving and flooring to adorable outfits for your character, Animal Crossing codes give you the freedom to let your imagination go wild and to share your ideas with others.

We’ve compiled a list of the most popular Animal Crossing QR codes and design codes for you to check out and apply to your island as you see fit. Plus, with the Halloween event in full swing, we have made sure to add some extra spooky additions to our list.
