What Are Additional Changes In Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Winter Patch?
Celebration of Turkey Day and Toy Day. As stated above, both holiday events are held on specific dates, so it’s best to make a mental note of when to gather friends and family for some ecstatic fun-time.
On November 26th, first-class chef Franklin will be found cooking at the town plaza for Turkey Day. Players help the chef cook four delicious and warm meals for the entire day by collecting the needed ingredients to complete the recipe. Completing the tasks will earn players multiple rewards.
Feel the chill in the air? That’s the island’s town hall gradually becoming lively because of the holiday festivities and snowy days set for Toy Day, which is on the 24th of December. Starting 1st of December until the 25th, players can purchase as many toys from Nook’s Cranny as holiday gifts. A special visit from Jingle is also expected on Toy Day, and accomplishing his tasks can also earn players sensational rewards.
New reactions and hairstyles. That’s right, one of the most awaited requests by numerous fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons are the latest hairstyles and reactions added in the game.
There are nine new reactions and six hairstyles that are purchasable with Nook Miles at the Resident Service’s Nook Stop. Nothing like styling up and expressing the best self for the holidays with a new look and attitude.
Expanded Home Storage. The fans prayed, and Nintendo answered. The winter patch for Animal Crossing: New Horizons also comes with an upgraded house feature, and that is the expanded house storage.
Talk to Tom Nook and pay the remaining debt to achieve a new house ownership level as Island Representative; afterward, head back home and open home customization settings. Players can now store up to 2,400 various storage items, unlike before, which could only store up to 800 slots.
Island and Resident Data Transferring System. Two more additional game features are included in version 1.6.0, and that is the expansion island and resident data transferring services.
This handy feature allows players to move their entire game data from the previous Nintendo Switch console to another Switch system. Moreover, the transferring system will be supported by the Nintendo Eshop’s free Island Transfer tool. Players will also get to know the following benefits and limitations when it comes to island transferring.
