New ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Updates Fix Major Game Issues



New 'Animal Crossing_ New Horizons' Updates Fix Major Game Issues

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has received two new major updates over the last few days.

The 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 updates have resolved several major issues that have been plaguing the game since release, including one huge bug that has been impacting the game’s current Bunny Day event.

Nintendo released the 1.1.2 patch immediately after the release of the Bunny Day event on April 1st, which sees players hunt for eggs around their island to craft exclusive and limited-time Bunny Day-themed items.

The patch notes released by Nintendo state that the 1.1.2 update fixes an issue in which a sold plot of land will revert to being available and allowing a new animal to move in. Previously, some players experienced a bug in which an animal that was invited to move into their town would not do so.

Other issues fixed by the patch include bugs in which a request from Tom Nook to purchase a plot of land disappears, an issue in which Nook Mile and Bells are deducted when players use Nook Mile Tickets for Mystery Tours and purchase an item from Wilbur.

The 1.1.3 patch which released yesterday (April 3rd) fixes an issue regarding balloons. Since the Bunny Day event, several players claimed that balloons had stopped flying over their island after shooting down their 300th and claiming the Nook Miles reward.

Reports suggest that the bug didn’t affect everyone who popped their 300 balloons but the patch allegedly fixed the issue. The patch notes for the 1.1.3 update reads: “Addressed an issue where balloons would no longer fly over the island under certain circumstances.”

Although the bug doesn’t sound too serious, it was severely impacting the Bunny Day event as some of the required eggs come from balloons. Now the issue has been fixed, players are free to continue the Bunny Day event with no problems.

Bunny Day: A Divisive First Event

As mentioned, the Bunny Day event kicked off on April 1st and will run through to April 12th where it will end on the actual Bunny Day. Throughout the event, players are tasked with hunting six varieties of eggs from their island including; Water, Wood, Earth, Sky, Leaf, and Stone.

Players will be able to hunt down various DIY recipes during the event and will reportedly need to use the eggs to craft limited-time items such as furniture, fencing, clothing, and more.

However, for some players, the abundance of eggs has become intrusive as players are struggling to collect natural resources and fish as eggs have replaced most of them. This has led to a series of complaints regarding the first event, with many players looking forward to the end of Bunny Day. Other players, meanwhile, have been complaining over the myriad of missing content in the game.

Meanwhile, another update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is set to launch later this month for Earth Day and sees the return of Leif, a character from the 3DS’s New Leaf game, along with the introduction of “new gameplay”. Check back for the latest Animal Crossing news.
