Discover all the details of one of the main novelties of the second part of the free summer update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Just a few days ago, Nintendo confirmed that today, July 30, Animal Crossing: New Horizons would receive the second part of the free summer update, including a new character and some mechanics and surprises.
How to visit Luna in a dream
The main novelty of this update of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the possibility of visiting Luna, a special Tapir who takes us in our dreams to visit the islands of other players. To access this new functionality it is enough to get into any bed in our house. In this way, Luna’s visit will automatically open and we will be able to select if we simply want to sleep or want to dream about the island of some other player.
If after sleeping, Luna still does not appear, you should check that you are playing the correct version of the video game (1.4.0). You can do it through the title screen, which indicates the version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Therefore, virtually all players can access this functionality. However, it is worth noting two important details that we leave below:
- An active subscription to Nintendo Switch Online is required
- This functionality will not be accessible while the server is under maintenance.
How to visit other islands in dreams
To visit another player’s island in the dream, you will need to enter a special address that each player must give you in advance. By entering the address, you will be sent to the island of the player in question and you can visit it entirely. Despite this, you will not be able to carry any type of object with you.
To get your home address, you just need to go to a bed in your house and talk to Luna, asking him to upload your island in the form of a dream. This can only be done once a day.
Once inside another player’s island, the only way to leave is by going back to the bed you came from. However, if for any reason you get stuck at any point, the Rescue Service is still available.
What can you do on other islands?
Visits through sleep are much more limited than through the aerodrome. First of all, they are not simultaneous, so you will not be able to see any other real player. The character that appears simply is an NPC with a predetermined phrase that each user can choose through their passport.
You cannot bring any items to the islands. In this way, you should not worry about vandalism when uploading your island to the Internet in the form of a dream. However, it is possible to interact with some objects on the islands that are visited to access possible designs. These can be downloaded and later used on our own island.
It is important to note that, since objects cannot be brought to visitors if your island requires objects to move (such as ladders or the pole), it is best that you leave them on the ground so that the rest of the Users can get hold of them and tour your entire island.
