Animal Crossing New Horizons Update 2.0 Secrets You May Not Know Yet

The free Animal Crossing New Horizons update 2.0, now available, has many features and details that had not been announced by Nintendo. Here we reveal its secrets.

Animal Crossing New Horizons version 2.0 is now available (in fact, many users were able to download it a day in advance ). Along with this free update, the paid DLC Happy Home Paradise (free for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers + Expansion Pack) has also been released.

However, there is no need to checkout to enjoy a massive amount of new content in Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch. Version 2.0 is full of content and new things to do, but many of them can go unnoticed.

In fact, there have been some “secret” enhancements that Nintendo did not announce in their Animal Crossing Direct and that players have welcomed with open arms. Let’s see some of the secrets hidden in version 2.0 of Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Secrets of Animal Crossing New Horizons update 2.0 that have gone unnoticed

The first time you turn on the game after installing the update, it does a good job guiding you through the main news. The “quest” of the cafeteria, for example. To unlock The Birdseed in the Museum, you must speak to Blathers.

This will tell you to go to the pier at one of the two corners of the beach, where a new old character, the Captain, will take you to a desert island in exchange for Nook Miles. There you will meet Brewster, who will give you your first Gyroids to plant in your village.

Back on your island, go back to the Museum for Blathers to start the construction work on the cafeteria, which takes one day.

The other great novelty of the update is the Harv’s Island shopping area, and you get a letter inviting you to go. There, you can use berries to build street stalls with various shops, including a hairdresser and a fortune teller. Also, as soon as you start the game, Isabelle will explain that now you can cook.

Those five things (kitchen, cafeteria, trips with the Captain, shopping area in Cayo Fauno, and gyroids) are the main novelties of version 2.0. But there are many more things that the game does not explain to you. Although you may find many of them naturally, here we summarize them, via Animal Crossing World datamining.

  • 9 achievement sequences added to redeem for TeleNook (much needed for expensive boat trips ). They consist of digging up gyroids, planting vegetables, hanging out with the captain, drinking coffee …
  • The villagers will come to visit you at your house without warning, and they will play a little minigame of guessing cards with which you can get objects
  • Now you can store the DIY Project Instructions in the basement. Hurrah!
  • If you complete the museum’s four collections (fish, bugs, fossils, and art) will give you a poster, which you can buy later.
  • If you talk to Leif in the new commercial area of ​​Cayo Fauno, you can pay him to clean all the weeds in your town … for 100,000 bells.
  • Although you can get the first recipes in the terminal of the town hall and the Tendo and Nendo shop, you will learn new recipes simply by catching fish or knocking down balloons.
  • Group stretching: interact with the boombox in the plaza to participate in this minigame.
  • In total, among the new furniture in the Timmy and Tommy store, the recipes, the gyroids, the items for Telenook … there are more than 9,000 new items in the game!
  • When Dreaming, you can now search for dream islands by island name.
  • In decoration mode in your home, you can now filter by types of furniture when searching among the objects in your basement
  • Characters from previous games, like Sun and Star, will make “cameos” in the cafeteria …
  • You can ask Totakeke for new songs
  • There are new designs for letters at the airfield post office
  • You will be able to use the new series 5 of amiibo cards. But the new villagers are not exclusive to amiibo: they can leave you at any time.
  • The maximum number of designs that you can upload to the Portal has been expanded to 200.

Speaking to Tom Nook and Isabelle at City Hall:

  • You can expand the basement, as part of the reforms of your house (if you have outstanding debts you must pay it before). Eye! You should have gotten all the additions to the house before you can ask to extend the basement. It costs 500,000 bells.
  • The fee to move your house around or change the exterior costs less. There are also more options to decorate it outside.
  • Municipal ordinances: by talking to Isabelle, after paying a fee, you can choose for the villagers to be more early risers, night owls, and clean. Also that they pay more for the objects when selling (and also increase the price of the stores).

At the City Hall terminal you can redeem Nook mile for all this:

  • Insular Manual Application: it is installed in the TeleNook and gives you tips to take advantage of your time on the island.
  • Patterns in My Designs: You can use new patterns on your clothes and walls
  • Camera Pro: Now you can put the camera on a tripod … or even in the first person to take photos.
  • New reactions and emotions
  • New hairstyles
  • Lots of new large furniture to decorate the town, such as fairground attractions
  • Shed furniture: A very useful piece of furniture that allows access to the basement from anywhere in town … but BEWARE, it will only come out if you have increased the basement before (see above)
  • New fences: You can’t get them all the same day, but check in regularly to see new types of fences and gates. Now you can customize them too.
  • Decoration +: You can place accent walls (one wall is of a different design than another in the same room) and hang things from the ceiling.
  • ATM: As with the shed furniture, only if you have paid for all the additions to the house, you can get an automatic “bayero” to place anywhere in town.

In the Timmy and Tommy shop you can unlock the following things:

  • Ladder kit: With 1 hand ladder and 5 normal boards, you can build a permanent ladder to leave on slopes so you don’t have to carry the hand ladder
  • Basic recipe book: you can buy more cooking recipes.

In time, we may find even more secrets from this huge update. What is certain is that all the new objects are present in this update, so there will be no exclusive furniture of the Happy Home Paradise DLC.

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:

cj and flick animal crossing

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.

We discover a method the Captain uses to decide which islands to take you to in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We discover a method the Captain uses to decide which islands to take you to in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Many players who rebooted their island for update 2.0 have been finding that the Captain has been taking them to fairly common locations, blaming that to chance. However, there is something else: the game restricts certain special islands depending on the age of our character.

This is how we have been able to find out thanks to our friend Joseph, who has discovered that, if for example, we have not passed a certain date within the game world, we will not be able to access the island that was related to it. To illustrate it in some way, you will not be able to access the winter island (the one with snow and flakes floating in the air) if you have not lived on February 24 within the title at some time. This, of course, can be easily solved by taking a temporary trip (changing the date) or waiting.

We leave you with a list of the rare islands available in the Captain’s trips and the dates that you have had to have lived within the game to be able to access them (keep in mind that the dates correspond to the northern hemisphere, and, on the other hand, that if you have not passed these dates, in case one of these islands touched you, the Captain would take you to a common one instead):

  • Winter Island – February 24
  • Cherry Petal Island – April 10
  • Bamboo Island – May 31
  • Star Shard Island – June 15
  • Seashells Island – August 31
  • Autumn Leaves Island – November 25
  • Setitas Island – November 30

Animal Crossing New Horizons: What the donation box is and how to use

We tell you exactly how to create the donation box in Animal Crossing New Horizons, and also how to make donations to other users.

With the arrival of the great update for Animal Crossing New Horizons, we not only have new recipes and ingredients, but also new functionalities when it comes to decorating the interiors of our houses, in addition to those stores that will fill our island a little more, But there is one element that is going unnoticed that could earn you quite a few bells.

And is that if you are an important user of the community or a very friendly person, it is likely that you can get a lot of additional bells thanks to the so-called donation box.

While creating the donation box in Animal Crossing New Horizons is tremendously simple, it will be much more difficult for you to attract donations from other visitors, but if you are a good user and have a splendid island, you already have a lot of livestock.

Animal Crossing New Horizons: What the donation box is and how to use

Surely you have ever visited the island of some other user and have been delighted, so much so that you would have even been able to leave some kind of donation, not only because of the designs that you have been able to discover but also because they have treated you phenomenally.

Well, after the last update of the game we can buy and create the so-called donation box. Buying it is very simple, since it is accessible at the Nook Stop terminal in resident services, and it costs only 800 nook miles.

To make it, you only need 4 units of wood and 4 units of softwood, which you will surely have.

Once you have made a donation box or several boxes, all you have to do is place them at strategic points on your island so that other visitors can interact with it.

Only you will be able to collect these bells that they have left you as donations, and it would be convenient if you would check it a couple of times a day to see if you are doing things well on your island.

In your case it is exactly the same, you will begin to visit other islands where you will see donation boxes, and it would be recommended that you leave something at some point.

Simply walk over to one of these donation boxes, interact with it, and you will be given the option of depositing 1000 bells or doing nothing.

In this way, those users who are especially friendly, who do good exchanges, and who above all have a spectacular island, will be able to obtain donations several times a day from visitors, and in fact, it is likely that it will become a custom to give thanks. for the visit, something that you should also do when you go to other islands.
