Animal Crossing: New Horizons is celebrating Easter by Bunny Day, an ongoing occasion that fills your island up with a number of forms of eggs which you can acquire. These eggs may be crafted into themed pastel objects, which is a pleasant thought, besides the sheer variety of eggs acquired in the way in which of the bottom sport expertise — and gamers have been loud about that. Well, Nintendo is listening.
A replace went stay halfway by the Bunny Day occasion, and in response to Nintendo’s official Japanese patch notes — which we’ve translated through Google — the 1.1.4 replace has “the appearance rate of some eggs adjusted.” In a follow-up bullet level, the web site notes that eggs will likely be simpler to gather on Easter, the ultimate day of the occasion (April 12.) So, fewer eggs total for now, however in case you’re hurting to complete your DIY assortment for Zipper, you’ll nonetheless get an opportunity to finish the Easter set earlier than the occasion goes away. An excellent compromise.
Unfortunately, the web site is obscure about what, precisely, these egg changes are. Polygon downloaded the patch and spent about 30 minutes futzing about, throughout which the fishing egg drop price appeared to be about the identical, however fewer sky eggs than regular had been generated.
Helpfully, the replace additionally fixes a bug associated to bug-collector Flick and the scarab beetle. But as Polygon has famous earlier than, it’s exceptional that Nintendo is treating New Horizons as if it had been a stay service sport within the vein of Splatoon. Previously, the Japanese developer issued three Animal Crossing patches in a couple of week, and with 1.1.4, that brings us to 4 patches in a few weeks. The robust help for New Horizons has been nice to witness — practically each grievance has been handled swiftly.
So, if of us nonetheless aren’t proud of the brand new egg drop charges, there’s an excellent likelihood that Nintendo may tweak them additional, or at the least take all of this suggestions into consideration for New Horizons’ subsequent occasion. Incidentally, Earth Day will likely be out there in Animal Crossing close to the top of April, when the life simulator will re-introduce Leif the sloth.
