This Is R Island: Animal Crossing x Rainiers

Let’s be real. We could all use a little break from this…well, break. Life is becoming a new weird reality and keeping track of what day of the week it is requires actual effort. People are finding solace in all kinds of things, but one particular avenue of escapism has permeated the global consciousness: Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

From picking up pears, fishing for boots, and falling into crippling debt to a raccoon, virtual island life has become a way for many to pass hours and days at a time.

Before all this, you repped R City everywhere you went. Now, it’s time for your Animal Crossing character to do the same.

Our crackpot design team has created three Rainiers t-shirts for you to wear around your little slice of video game paradise. All you have to do is use the QR code scanners here, upload the outfits into your Nintendo Switch, and get to showing your South Sound spirit as you go about your Animal Crossing routine.

Now, here’s the rub. We want to see your little critters in their little Rainiers shirts. It will make us smile. Tag us in a screenshot you take of your Animal Crossing character on social media, because they’re just so darn cute.

Always Together. We R Tacoma.
