If you occur to be holding a balloon, which is among the new objects, it’ll float away. Boo.

It appears to be like extraordinarily cool, apart from one hilarious challenge: If you put on the King Tut masks, you’ll journey far more usually than you usually would.
Why would it not occur extra usually once you’re sporting this masks? Well, prior to now, Animal Crossing has had a luck system that affected all kinds of day-to-day issues. On a very good luck day, every thing is superb: You’ll get more cash from rocks, it’ll be simpler to befriend villagers, and also you’ll also have a higher time avoiding bees, as a result of they’ll transfer extra slowly. The world’s your oyster.
On unhealthy luck days, it’s the exact opposite. You’ll discover fewer sources, it’ll be more durable to boost friendship ranges, the cash rock will turn out to be stingy, and — simply to pour salt on the wound — you’ll journey and fall in your face. Wearing the King Tut masks will instantly decrease your luck, which is why you’ll journey far more usually. It’s in all probability an Easter egg hinting on the masks’ cursed nature.
Tripping wasn’t in New Horizons till now, and followers are taking its sudden inclusion as indication of not only a luck system, however a completely new character. You see, prior Animal Crossing video games additionally had a black panther named Katrina who might, for a price, offer you a fortune. These fortunes have been an indicator that you just have been about to have good luck days or unhealthy luck days, together with occasions once you’d journey on a regular basis. She might even foretell days when your villagers would attempt to keep away from you!
All of that is to say: If New Horizons has tripping now, it appears very possible that future updates will get a full-blown luck system, and maybe a brand new customer kind to associate with that.
