Show off your island in custom posters and trailers!
Nintendo has launched a new service for Animal Crossing: New Horizons players called Island Tour Creator. This website allows players to create posters and trailers for their islands using the screenshots and video clips they capture while playing. New Horizons on Nintendo Switch.
Here’s everything you need to know about using Island Tour Creator!
Island Tour Creator lets you upload screenshots and video clips that are saved on your smartphone, as well as those you’ve uploaded to Twitter. To access content you have shared on Twitter, you must link the Island Tour Creator website to your Twitter account. Island Tour Creator will let you select media from your most recent 1,000 tweets, so if the content you’re looking for is older than that, you’ll need to either make sure it’s saved to your device and manually download it or tweet start over for newer content.
To send videos and screenshots from your Switch to your smartphone, open your album on the Switch, select the content you want to send, and choose “Send to Smartphone”. Then follow the on-screen instructions. Check Nintendo’s support website for more information on transferring media from your Switch to your smart device.
You can access Island Tour Creator by visiting this website. The website is intended for use on a smartphone, so if you load it on a web browser, you will not be able to access its services. However, you will see a QR code that you can scan with your smartphone camera to open the website there.
Once you open the website, you will need to sign in with your Nintendo Account.
Once logged in, Tom Nook will introduce you to the Island Tour Creator service and you can choose whether you want to create a poster or a trailer.
When creating a poster, you will be able to enter the name of your island and then upload a screenshot. You can customize the look of your poster with a photo frame and tagline, and you’ll also have the option to add your dream address so players who view the poster can visit your island.
Once your poster is ready, you can download the image to your device or share it instantly on Twitter.
When creating a trailer, you’ll enter the name of your island, then choose up to three “features” you want to show off, such as your animal neighbors, an in-game event, or the museum. From here, you can upload up to three screenshots or a single video clip for each feature you selected. Your finished trailer will have a voiceover that speaks about the feature(s) you selected, as if it were a real travel promo video!
Once your photos and/or videos are uploaded, you’ll be able to choose a thumbnail for your trailer, add a tagline, and enter your dream address, if you want to share it.
Nintendo said the website may take 5-10 minutes to process your content into the final trailer, but this may vary depending on how busy the website is at the moment. You’ll have the option to email the trailer’s URL to yourself so you can check its status later (you can also copy the URL to your device’s clipboard to share elsewhere).
Once a trailer has been created, it will automatically be deleted from the Island Tour Creator service after 48 hours, so you will need to download it from the service before that happens! Once you’ve uploaded your trailer, you can share it wherever you want!
As of this writing, the Island Tour Creator website is expected to be available until December 31, 2021.
