Animal Crossing New Horizons has built a big fanbase on the Nintendo Switch with plenty more being planned for the game’s future.
And Switch gamers will wake up today with a new Animal Crossing New Horizons update waiting for them, courtesy of Nintendo.
However, unlike past Animal Crossing updates, which have offered new features and important bug fixes, this one is a little smaller in stature.
While Nintendo released update 1.2.0 last month, adding Leif and Redd in the process, it appears today’s patch only looks to remove bugs.
And unfortunately for us, Nintendo has not listed what exactly has been changed in Animal Crossing New Horizons today, May 22.
The official patch notes are as follows:
Ver. 1.2.1 (Released May 21, 2020)
- The software has been updated if you see “Ver. 1.2.1” in the upper-right corner of the title screen.
- Addressed issues to further ensure an enjoyable gaming experience.
There’s a small chance that more information will be confirmed regarding today’s Animal Crossing update.
Otherwise, we will have to wait and see if gamers spot anything different after downloading the patch.
Animal Crossing New Horizons has proven a huge hit on Nintendo Switch following its launch earlier in 2020.
The Express Online’s review gave the latest adventure in the franchise 5/5, adding: “Fans of the franchise will feel right at home in this beautiful addition to the franchise – it is absolutely show-stopping.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons will truly capture the hearts, minds, and lives of long-time Animal Crossing players.
While the game only introduces a handful of new mechanics, it doubles down and improves on so many of the older aspects. So much so that fans will be absolutely giddy by the end of the first day.
Despite some of the new terraforming and crafting tools being a little stiff, their inclusion is quite literally groundbreaking for the game.
Fans and newcomers will fall head-over-heels in love with this island getaway, and just when they need it most. Indeed, a game that lets you escape to a tropical paradise is THE perfect release for the coronavirus lockdown, and a must-have for all Nintendo Switch owners.
