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

Published

on

Animal Crossing: New Horizons confirms a new update for this week and another for the end of the year

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.”

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.

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.
