An object has been blocked in the new Animal Crossing update

A new update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons arrived on April 28. Version 1.10.0 introduced some events that we had already seen around this time last year, such as International Museum Day and Wedding Season, but these were changed with different rewards and interesting new features. However, one of our trusted members discovered a problem with the update for new players, which would prevent them from receiving a specific item.

One of the main events of the spring season is the May Day Tour, where we can find the friendly Rover and visit from 29 April to 7 May with a special ticket given to us by Tom Nook. A year ago, the same event had Rover’s briefcase as a reward, while this time players will be able to get a photo of him. The problem, however, is that only those who already have the first item will be able to receive the other.

You won’t be able to tackle the maze twice to solve it. The only way to get the item is to not update Animal Crossing to the latest version. Before doing so, you’ll need to change the date in your Nintendo Switch settings to May 1, 2020, after which you’ll be able to experience last year’s event and get the phantom briefcase. Once you’ve done so, return to today’s date and you can safely visit the new maze and then receive Rover’s photo as a reward.

Animal Crossing player uses Pascal for marriage proposal with a tragic history

Animal Crossing player uses Pascal for marriage proposal with a tragic history

The wedding season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons doesn’t start until next month, but one player insisted on proposing to his girlfriend now. He used the lively Pascal to ask his loved one the question of all questions because Pascalr helped them both through the most difficult time of their lives.

Pascal as a messenger of love

What happened? On Reddit, the user shared his story with the community. He bought his girlfriend the Switch game Animal Crossing: New Horizons in December because she had been through a serious illness and had not been allowed to leave the house for 6 months. The game helped her to stop feeling lonely and to stay mentally healthy.

The couple developed a daily ritual: The friend showed him the daily saying from Pascal or sent him the sayings on his cell phone. This shows up when you find a scallop while diving and teaches you a clever saying.

Planned marriage proposal: To make his girlfriend a big surprise, the user planned a marriage proposal, in which the eloquent Pascal should of course not be missing. He printed a line from Johannes on photo paper and gave her the picture after a family outing:

“Do you know what would make me the happiest Pascal in the world, maaaaan? If you said yes!”

The community wished the Animal Crossing fan the best of luck with their endeavors. The user found out his girlfriend’s answer to the marriage proposal the next day.

Marriage proposal with a happy ending

How did the marriage proposal end? Of course, the friend couldn’t say no to such a sweet proposal! On Reddit, the user proudly posts the picture of his girlfriend, who of course has already put on her engagement ring:

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Might Introduce Island Expansion With Upcoming Update

Published

on

Dataminers find new features that appear to be on the way to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, including more terrain and more Nintendosmash.com

We can take a look at even more findings from dataminers found in the latest update of the game. Remember that recently in this same version there were references to the customization of fences, the cafeteria, and more.

Well, now we must add the following to this list:

  1. A new tool that corresponds to the basket of petals that you can throw. This object belongs to the wedding season and in fact, has already been seen in the title.
  2.  Changes related to the game’s camera, which could correspond to new angles or functions.
  3. The southern line of the island seems to have doubled in size in the in-game code, something that points to a second island or something similar, with more space towards the bottom as you can see in the picture above. It is unlikely to be an expansion of the island as such, so the bet is more on a second island related to Captain, a second seaplane, or something similar.

Some are suggesting that it would be a nice second smaller island while others are speculating it to be a larger area where they can further swim and dive into the sea.

Indeed, this would be an amazing addition, as most players are already running out of space to decorate their islands. If players get a new small island, they will be able to decorate it with the recently added 1.10 event-exclusive items as well. Naturally, these are all just leaks, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s not confirmed whether Nintendo will introduce it in the next patch or not.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a hit. It’s such a hit that it will probably end up as the number one Switch game of all time, dethroning Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and could hold that top spot forever. So it makes perfect sense that Nintendo is going to try and chase that success.

Speaking to Nikkei, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explains how the game got so popular, in fairly obvious terms: “It’s true that our recent growth has stemmed from the need for people to stay at home. Even though (Japan’s) state of emergency is over, people are spending more time at home than before.”

OK, that makes a lot of sense, but there’s a lot to unpack here. New Horizons really tapped into the portable and communal element of the Switch, something consoles can lack on an emotional level. Furukawa wants to tap into that more, explaining: “As games with long lifespans like Animal Crossing become more accepted, we believe this will have a significant impact on future development. We want to provide games that can allow communication between friends and families.”

A Girl Demands An Explanation From Nintendo After Making This Sexist Discovery

A Girl Demands An Explanation From Nintendo After Making This Sexist Discovery

A seven-year-old girl recently caused an internet buzz when she noticed that the female and male models of several outfits cost different amounts in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We take a look at what the girl discovered, and what it’s really like, according to our investigation.

THE REMARK OF A YOUNG GIRL WHO IGNITES THE WEB

A 7-year-old girl named Oakley was playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons when she decided it was time to buy a new outfit for her character. Her brother had also previously purchased an outfit for his male character, and when the girl decided to buy the same outfit for the female character, she realized that the “girl” outfit was more expensive than the “boy” one.

The seven-year-old girl was taken aback by the news and asked her mother, Ashley, why there was a price difference between the two outfits.

THE REACTION OF THE GIRL’S MOTHER

Ashley didn’t know what to say to her daughter, so the girl decided to take matters into her own hands, writing a letter to Nintendo. The letter, which you can find below, was shared on social media:

Ashley took the opportunity to address the issue of the pink tax, which is still relevant to her. The “pink tax” refers to the difference in price between products and services intended for women and those intended for men, to the detriment of female consumers. In 2012, a survey by Forbes magazine concluded that being a woman in the United States costs on average $1,400 more than being a man, due to pricing policies based on gender marketing. Oakley’s mother, therefore, took the opportunity to link her family’s discovery to the pink tax.

Oakley’s story has already been around the internet, and many people have praised the girl’s critical spirit, but also her willingness to understand, born out of her feeling of injustice. But then, what is it really? A male garment in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is it really cheaper than the same model in the female category?
