Thanks to update 1.2.0, not only does the day of nature start in Animal Crossing New Horizons but also an old friend is coming back: The (cunning) fox Redd.
Who is Redd? This is an art dealer who sells you both real paintings and fakes. Thanks to Redd, your museum in New Horizons will also be expanded to include an art section.
In this guide, you will learn how to unlock Redd and what you have to consider when buying paintings to avoid accidentally buying overpriced counterfeits.
Get Redd – this is how you unlock the painting dealer
Redd does not visit your island right away, you have to follow the following steps:
- Download at least the update 1.20 (current version: 1.31) for AC: New Horizons (it doesn’t start automatically, then click the corresponding game app in the switch menu with the minus button and run it manually)
- start the game and talk to Eugen (Bleathers) in the museum: He tells you that you’ve done a wonderful job so far and that a new area for art is to be added to the museum
- after the conversation, you have to let 24 hours pass (if you don’t want to wait, you can also introduce time travel or the time in AC New Horizons )
- The next day, after starting the game, Melinda will tell you that there is a suspicious person on the island: Redd, of course
For all new players: If you’ve only recently started the game, Eugen won’t ask you for works of art until after the museum has been built. Before that, you cannot meet Redd on your island.
Where can I find Redd’s treasure cutter?
Congratulations, the crafty art dealer has now made it to your island, but where can you find him?
Here is his shop: From now on Redd will go to your island once a week by ship, which also serves as an art shop. You can find the ship in the far north on your map on a secret beach that you can only reach with your ladder (see picture).
Here is Redd: The first time, however, Redd will not be on his ship. If you click on the entrance, you read the message that you are not allowed to enter without permission. You need this permission from the art dealer himself, of course.
The solution? You have to find the fox first – he is walking around somewhere on the beaches or directly in front of the service center on your island. At the time of writing, no concrete pattern has emerged as to how exactly you will find it.
Should you have picked up Redd on your island, speak to him and initially decline his offer, the painting for almost 500,000 bells. Then he’ll make you a very cheap price of only 4,980 bells. Buy the painting and then bring it to Eugene. This is coincidental but will always be a real work of art. After your donation, the owl will start building the art gallery.
Redd, however, will continue to be on your island the whole day, but you can’t do anything with him anymore. A few days later he will return and then you can visit him on his boat cutter.
What to do if Redd no longer comes?
You can also miss Redd if he’s not there for the first time. However, the waiting time before the next time he comes can be several days or even weeks. Therefore, make sure that you buy the painting when Melinda announces for the first time that a strange figure is on the island.
Recently there was an update that changed the algorithm that we are also explaining to you. Since then, Redd has been able to appear on your island several times.
So you can visitRedd on Harvey’s Plaza every day!
With Update 2.0 there is now a new location on Harvey’s Island that is a marketplace for all the wandering traders. So Redd comes by with his caravan and sells you a work of art every day.
Changing offer: The works of art on offer are exactly the same that you can still get on his cutter. However, he offers you two pieces a day, which only change when you’ve bought something. The purchased work of art is then exchanged for another the next day.
So it can happen that you are forced to purchase counterfeit works of art. As usual, these will be sent to your mailbox the next day.
What does Redd offer for sale?
Paintings, statues, and Artwork: The fox’s primary business, of course, revolves around the paintings, statues, and artwork in the game. You can buy these from him for 4980 bells each.
Furniture: Redd also has two more decorative objects on offer for each visit. These are random and always overpriced on top of that. So you should just keep your hands off it, even if the fox claims otherwise.
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.
