Expand Your Friendship Horizons

One of the most gratifying parts of Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) is building friendships with your villagers. Friendship in ACNH level up by interacting with your villagers: by talking to them, creating unique catchphrases or nicknames, and most of all–giving them gifts. The pinnacle reward of that friendship is receiving their villager photo–when you've reached "best friend" status. With the right strategy (offering your villagers gifts that match what they like), a player can collect the villager photos of each villager on their island (and then kick them out to start all over). There are 413 villagers in the game, and they each have individual preferences.

By creating a tool to look up preferences of Animal Crossing villagers, players can level up their friendships and reap the benefits!

There are existing, disparate APIs to access Animal Crossing: New Horizons villager data. This project aims to eventually combine these databases and normalize villager data, enabling Villager BFF to display the most robust villager data of Animal Crossing: New Horizons reference sites.
