Remember Audrey, the Animal Crossing-loving grandmother who clocked up almost 4,000 hours of playtime on Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Well, it would appear that she has been immortalised in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by getting a character named after her.

Audrey rose to fame last year when her grandson, Paul Hubans, posted a video of her showing off her progress in the 3DS game. She has been playing it every single day for the past four years. The Animal Crossing community quickly took her to their hearts and even raised the funds to purchase her an Animal Crossing edition Nintendo Switch.

With reviews for New Horizons now live, fans have been picking through the video footage and have discovered that there's a character in the game named Audie, which is the same name that Audrey uses in New Leaf.

What do you make of this neat little tribute to one of the series' most famous fans?
