The life of crime has finally caught up to Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Redd, with a fan creating a courtroom to prosecute the shady fox for his illicit deals. Redd, the black market art dealer, was added to Animal Crossing during its Earth Day Update in April 2020, rebranding himself as Jolly Redd. The sly fox will often visit the player’s island on his fishing boat in New Horizons?to ply his suspect wares, offering a mix of counterfeit and genuine artwork in an attempt to trick players out of their hard-earned bells.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is Nintendo’s second best selling game of all time, having sold over 32 million copies since its release in March 2020. Despite its popularity, fans have since criticized Nintendo for the lack of major content updates to the title since release. While New Horizons periodically receives updates, they are generally small events that bring a handful of new items every few months. Many fans were incredibly disappointed when Nintendo’s direct at E3 2021 did not come with an announcement or mention of new content for Animal Crossing, although players have recently been reassured by Nintendo of America’s President, Doug Bowser, that new and exciting developments await New Horizons.

Reddit user Rigel04 seems to have had enough of Redd’s criminal activities, creating a courtroom in order to bring the conniving fox to justice. In their post, the Animal Crossing fan presides over the trial as the Judge, with Kitty seated on their right as the court stenographer, and Louie standing menacingly to their left, acting as the court’s security officer. The public gallery is packed with villagers watching the trial unfold, with Blathers fittingly employed as the prosecutor, having dealt with Redd’s numerous counterfeits. In another screenshot, prosecutor Blathers can be seen displaying Redd’s wares side by side as evidence, building a solid case of the fox’s wrongdoings.
Previously calling himself Crazy Redd, the character has been present in all Animal Crossing games since the series’ first title was released in 2002. Until now, the miscreant has never been punished for tricking countless?Animal Crossing?players out of their bells, although Redd’s arrival in New Horizons prompts Isabelle to warn the island inhabitants to be careful when dealing with Redd, calling him a suspicious individual. Unfortunately, Rigel04 did not divulge the final verdict of the trial, thus perhaps more hearings may be required before they finally hand down a prosecution for Redd’s seemingly endless crime spree.
For many players that have been a victim of Redd’s scams, it must be good to finally see the con-artist put on trial. New Horizons’ photo mode has provided fans with a brilliant way to bring all sorts of scenarios to life in Animal Crossing, and in the case of Redd, it looks like Rigel04 may have to build a jail for a foxy inhabitant soon.
