Bunny Day has proven to be a controversial debut for seasonal events in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Bunny Day has proven to be a controversial debut for seasonal events in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with Nintendo having now issued an update to balance things out. The event kicked off last week, filling the islands of players with eggs that occupied trees, rocks, lakes and even the sky. They can be used to craft a bunch of limited-time items, but proved overwhelming and changed up the vanilla gameplay flow.
Patch 1.1.4 is now available for download on Nintendo Switch, and it “adjusts the rate of drops for some eggs until 11th April,” meaning you might stand a chance of gathering standard crafting materials instead of eggs for once. Bunny Day itself doesn’t arrive until April 12th, where I assume all hell will break loose as we dedicate the rest of our lives worshipping The Egg Overlords. Players have until then to gather eggs and craft all items until they disappear for another year.
Bunny Day has been a mainstay in the Animal Crossing series since 2008’s Animal Crossing: City Folk for Nintendo Wii. It has traditionally been a one-day event that falls on Easter Sunday, but New Horizons turns it into a nearly two-week egg tour de force. Players can collect rare eggs on their island and any mystery islands they visit to craft exclusive furniture and clothing until the event ends. In total, players need to use the eggs to craft 18 pieces of furniture to complete Zipper’s Bunny Day challenge. There are an additional 23 egg-themed clothing recipes to find. In addition, our site 5mmo.com has a large quantity of safe Animal Crossing New Horizons Items For Sale.
The update also reportedly fixes an issue with Flick, the bug enthusiast that occasionally appears on islands and is willing to buy bugs at a premium price from the player. If players give Flick three of the same bug, the red chameleon will create a model replica for them. The patch fixes an issue where Flick would not create models of the Scarab Beetle.To get the update, players need to connect to the internet when booting up the game and must have sufficient space on their Nintendo Switch or microSD card.
So, if folks still aren’t happy with the new egg drop rates, there’s a good chance that Nintendo might tweak them further, or at least take all of this feedback into consideration for New Horizons’ next event. Incidentally, Earth Day will be available in Animal Crossing near the end of April, when the life simulator will re-introduce Leif the sloth.
