Animal Crossing: New Horizons Players Can Now Donate Their Rotten Turnips For A Good Cause
Mayonnaise manufacturer Hellmann’s is looking to “bring out the best” of spoiled turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The company’s Canadian branch will be running a virtual food drive next week that will see up to 25,000 meals donated to Canadian charity Second Harvest, one for every rotten turnip that is gifted by Nintendo Switch owners.
Each week, Animal Crossing players purchase turnips on the ‘Stalk Market’ that will spoil if not sold within the week, becoming virtually worthless in the game. The Animal Crossing food drive will kick off on Monday, August 17 at 3 PM ET and will last until 12:15 AM ET on Saturday, August 22. To access Hellmann’s New Horizons island, players will have to send a message to the company’s Twitter account. It will then send them a Dodo Code that will allow them to visit and donate any spoiled turnips they have. After players help feed those in need, they will have 15 minutes to check out Hellmann’s island, which has been decked out with custom clothing at the Able Sisters’ shop, has a farm to check out, and an outdoor kitchen.
“Whether virtual or real, at Hellmann’s® we believe food is too precious to waste and we’re thrilled to partner once again with Second Harvest to provide meals to Canadians in need,” says Gina Kiroff, Director of Foods at Unilever Canada. “When we noticed spoiled turnips is a real tension point for many Animal Crossing players, we wanted to take advantage of the insight to create a fun consumer experience that would have real-world impact. We’re hopeful Hellmann’s Island will not only be an incredible virtual experience but also will inspire players to think differently about real-world food waste.”
We have a full rundown of how it’ll work and some snaps of the island below:
- Hellmann’s Island will be open to visitors from 3:00 p.m. EST on Monday, August 17, to 12.15 a.m. EST on Saturday, August 22.
- To access the island, gamers will direct message Hellmann’s Canada on Twitter @HellmannsCanada to receive their personal dodo code which will be shared on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Selected visitors will be provided with a 15-minute timeslot to drop off their spoiled turnips. For each spoiled turnip dropped off, Hellmann’s will donate a meal to Second Harvest until the 25,000 meal target is achieved.
- After dropping off their spoiled turnips, guests will have the opportunity to explore the rest of the attractions on Hellmann’s Island including:
- Hellmann’s Farm – visitors can take a peaceful stroll through the picturesque canola fields or catch a glimpse of other Hellmann’s ingredients, including freshly laid eggs from free-run hens and barrels of vinegar.
- Second Harvest Outdoor Kitchen – here, guests can relax and unwind by a waterfall with a healthy sandwich and fresh produce prepared by Second Harvest.
- Able Sisters Merch Shop – fun merchandise can be downloaded at the local store, including items such as Hellmann’s-inspired dresses, t-shirts and jackets.
- Resident Services – guests can stop by to check out the bulletin board for more tips on how to be creative and make the most of what’s in their fridge and reduce food waste.
- Ribbon Island – if they’re feeling adventurous, guests can pole vault over to an island shaped like Hellmann’s iconic ribbon for a quick photo opp.
Scorpion attack ruins this Animal Crossing: New Horizons player’s entry into the New Year
An interesting publication related to one of the most prominent Switch titles comes back to us. In this case, we are talking about Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Today it is a message that has recently been gone viral on Reddit with more than 13,000 points when it shows the bad luck that the player who published the post had. In the image, we can see that he suffered a scorpion attack that left him KO right in the game’s New Years’ event. In fact, it seems to have happened right at the beginning of the year.
Without a doubt, it is a curious way to start 2022. Here you have it:
All Animal Crossing: New Horizons changes that the latest updates haven’t told you about
Animal Crossing New Horizons has changed a lot in version 2.0 and surrogates, and many changes to the Switch game had remained hidden … until now.
Version 2.0 of Animal Crossing New Horizons introduced many new features to the most successful Nintendo Switch game, such as the kitchen, the museum cafeteria, the gyroids …
We have covered much of the content of version 2.0 in previous guides, such as the complete list of gyroids, the food objects that changed their nature, the secret rewards of the cafe, or a new way to Get Star Shards.
But it turns out that there have been still more changes in this version. And although we have already broken down all the version 2.0 changes of October 2021, including the most secret ones, there were still more changes, some very small, but that Nintendo never reported.
All Animal Crossing New Horizons changes that the latest updates haven’t told you about
Get two photos of the villagers
The photos of the villagers when they become close friends with you are one of the most coveted objects, but what perhaps some did not know is that you can get several copies of the photo.
Since version 2.0 there is a new condition: speak at least 10 different days with the villager who gave you the photo to be able to get a second one. So even when you’ve got the photo, don’t neglect your relationship with the villagers!
Buh get more generous
The Phantom Buh, who comes out on a few random nights on the island, is now much more generous after the October 2021 update. Putting his five Essence Shards together will give us furniture with a much higher monetary value in Bells.
Specifically, if we ask for ” something that he does not have “, he will give us a piece of furniture that we do not have in the inventory with a maximum value of 15,000 bells, and if we ask for ” something expensive “, he will give us something that is worth between 6,000 and 100,000 bells.
Changes in the island finder in dreams
The mechanic of visiting other players ‘islands in dreams is one of the best ways to get inspired to modify your island, or just have fun watching other players’ creations. Here we leave you many islands that you can visit with codes … but they are no longer necessary in the game.
And it is that the most recent update has added the possibility of visiting islands searching by name. That is, if you have allowed your island to be visited, you only have to provide the name of your island so that others can visit it, which makes it much easier. For example, have you visited that island that recreates the Mario Kart 8 circuit?
New postcard designs
At the airfield, you can buy postcards to send to your online friends or other villagers, and without prior notice, two new letter designs have been added, with fireworks on urban background, and with a mountain reminiscent of Mount Fuji: Dawn Year Postcard New and Postcard Fireworks.
The funny thing is that these designs were already in the game before, but for some reason, perhaps a bug, they could not be purchased until now.
New items until 2032 … that you can get without traveling in time
Update 2.0.5 introduced new objects of the Chinese zodiac, animal figures according to the animals of each year (2022 is the year of the tiger), which you can get for a limited time in the MiniNook catalog.
Of course, you can get all these items earlier by traveling in time (by changing the time on the console), but there is another “legal” way to get the animal figures sooner: through rewards that the fortune teller Katrina gives you every time you It “purifies” you for 10,000 bells if it reads you bad luck.
Furniture name changes
This small change will go unnoticed by the vast majority of players. The Desert Slab Wall and Desert Slab, with color variants such as blue, khaki, or lilac, are renamed Moroccan Slab Wall and Moroccan Slab and are added to the Moroccan collection that was added in Happy Home Paradise, with other furniture such as a table, a sofa or a pouf.
Dialogue suggests again that flick and CJ are more than friends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Today we bring you a nice story about flick and CJ, two characters from Animal Crossing: New Horizons whose relationship we’ve learned more about with the title’s 2.0 update. Specifically, let’s start with the screenshots below:
As you can see, in addition to knowing that flick and CJ are now living together, it has been discovered that if we build a house for one, the other will automatically move in too.
To this we must now add the advice on love relationships that CJ gives us in some of his dialogues (which makes us assume that he has experience in the subject), as well as what flick’s father, Nat, tells us about his son’s relationship with CJ, stating that he feels happy about the relationship they have.
All this dialogue makes fans think that CJ and flick are more than friends, and some are already celebrating with drawings and other fan material.
