Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a lot of creative outlets for players. From designing clothes to creating your own flag, the game lets players show their creativity and personality through these features. One fun outlet is composing Animal Crossing island tunes.
The island tune serves as your jingle. It plays as an hourly alarm or when players enter buildings or talk to villagers. Whatever vibe your island has, there’s a tune that’s perfect for it! We’ve gathered 20 of the best Animal Crossing island town tunes to help you pick the perfect jingle for your tropical home.
Best Animal Crossing Island Town Tunes
Without further adieu, here are the best Animal Crossing Island Town tunes!
Doom 2016 Theme
Back in 2020, both Doom Eternal and New Horizon were scheduled to release on the same day. These two games are the complete opposite of each other, but gamers far and wide decided that a friendship between Isabelle and Doomguy is the cutest thing there is. Thus, a wholesome meme of the two was born.
With this island tune, you’ll be keeping a memento of that adorable friendship. Rip and tear, Isabelle!
Ponyo is the adorable Studio Ghibli tale of a little fish girl who yearned to live on land with her friend. Not only is this theme cute and iconic, but both New Horizons and Ponyo share a tropical theme. Fish, the sea, and adorable little critters? Sounds fitting!
Wanna welcome your visitors in a funky way? Lipps, Inc.’s Funkytown song is the perfect jingle to have. And if you picked Funky Town as your island name, consider this a sign to change your Animal Crossing island tunes ASAP.
If you love Tetris and want to make it your island’s theme, you can use its iconic tune as your jingle and even incorporate Tetris-like blocks around your island. You can design an empty space using various boxes and cubes, and even terraform or make paths to put block patterns on the ground.
Be the bonafide Tetris fan you’ve always wanted to be!
