Animal Crossing new horizons has been out for over a year, and we're still discovering so many different secrets and fun details about the game. Today, MmoGah would like to share some of them, which you might have discovered before, or not yet. Now let's check them out!
A Rude Awakening
If you're roaming around the beaches of your island, sometimes you're likely to run into a certain seagull who is washed-up ashore.
I love gulliver, and I think he's one of the funniest characters in the game. But maybe if you have a bit more disdain for his not waking up for you when you go to talk to him, there is another way that you can handle this. If you hit gulliver over the head with your net, it will trigger the dialogue to get him to talk to you. It's not guaranteed to wake him up every single time, but if for some reason you don't want to talk to gulliver, and you want to just smack him over the head with a net, it'll work the exact same way and basically get him to eventually wake up. It's not the nicest way for gulliver to wake up, but perhaps if you don't like this character so much, this could be the method for you to get him up on his feet.
Hidden Dream Feature
This is a cool and useful feature that was introduced in the 1.10 animal crossing update. But Nintendo didn't make much fanfare about it at all for some reason. When you're visiting a dream island, you can hit the minus button to exit quickly. This may seem like a simple thing, but it makes leaving dream island so much easier as previously you'd have to visit the bed and make your way back to the plaza just to exit, which was the same in animal crossing new leaf as well. Surprisingly enough, they've updated the dream suite feature with some pretty cool quality of life changes. This one, as well as allowing players to visit dream islands randomly, is pretty great. So maybe we'll see even more improvements for this feature in the future.
The Great Escape
If you visit the museum's bug exhibit, you may notice that the ants are escaping from their little enclosure, which honestly makes my skin crawl. I hate the idea of ants getting out and getting literally everywhere and just crawling wherever they want. But unfortunately, this is exactly what is happening in Blather's museum, and I honestly doubt that he is too fond of this idea. So definitely don't let him know that it's going on because I'm pretty sure he would freak out.
Blather's Bug Reaction
This is probably one of the cutest interactions in the game and also one of the most sadistic. You'll probably know that Blather absolutely hates bugs, and he is petrified of them. Despite taking many bug donations in his time, he still can't get over his fear of them.
And this shows when you show off a bug right next to him, he will start to have a mini freak out. I honestly never ever thought to do this before. I didn't even realize that you could show off the bugs inside buildings like this. But the fact that you put a bug in Blather and he will kind of get scared is honestly ingenious. Sadly I'm sure that after this article, I've inspired tons of people to go and scare Blather.
Chrissy and Francine's Photos
As you may know, Chrissy and Francine are sisters and two bunny characters who are incredibly similar in their styles. They also have a big adoration for each other and tend to celebrate each other as much as they can.
This shows that both Chrissy and Francine have pictures of each other in their own homes.
A Special Invitation
If you've got any Amiibo content, this one is for you. If you try and invite a villager who already lives on your island to the campsite, you'll get a special interaction with them and some unique dialogue. This interaction is honestly super funny as your villagers will want no part in camping on your island when they can simply enjoy the island from the comfort of their own homes. I honestly thought Bob's reaction to this was really funny. It made me think that maybe there are more villager interactions out there that we just haven't discovered or are rarely seen within the game.
I know the villager dialogue in new horizons isn't the best, but stuff like this is really great as Nintendo could have easily just said that this villager already lives on your island, so you can't invite him, but instead, they chose to do some special dialogue for it, which I think is great.
Overstaying Your Welcome
Many of you will know that if you stay past a certain time in Nook's Cranny, the two little twins will actually kick you out, which is honestly just incredibly rude of them. To be fair, it probably is past their bedtime, so they literally have to kick you out. But the same can't be said for the Able Sisters, who won't kick you out of the building, even if you stay past the time that it closes, which is truly a testament to how hard these gals really work. Now with Nooks Cranny, you actually get some special music which honestly sounds amazing when the shop is about to close. But this doesn't happen for the Abel Sisters. It's a little bit strange to me that they decided to do this for Nooks Cranny, but not for Able Sisters, especially since the shops operate on limited hours. It wouldn't make sense for them to do something like this for the museum, but I think they should all be the same for the shopping areas. Maybe in a future update, we could see the Able Sisters kick us out, which would be kind of hilarious.
You might have seen the interaction where one villager will want you to deliver a gift to another. This is something that is carried on from previous animal crossing games. And it's just a cute little gift exchange, which will help you get more friendship points with whichever villager you're delivering to. Not only are you doing that villager a favor, but they're entrusting you with an item that clearly they care about a lot since they've taken the time to wrap it up all nice. The thing is that you actually can open these, and if you do open the gift and try to give it back to someone, you will get a unique interaction. They will quiz you on why the gift is open, and you can choose to be honest with them or lie. Now personally, I recommend lying because they won't know that you actually did, so that might be the option you want to go for. On the other hand, if you're feeling honest, you can tell the truth, but they may not always like that.
A Tight Squeeze
If you build two buildings really close to each other, Tom Nook will actually make a little comment during the ceremony about how incredibly tight-squeezed it is to get in there.
I thought this was really funny, and it's not a piece of dialogue that everyone is going to see, because logically most people aren't going to place their buildings this close together, and plenty of people don't even bother to attend the ceremonies. So I wanted to point this one out because I thought it was really interesting.
For some reason, a villager gifts you an item that you really aren't so fond of, and you just don't want to keep it. Then You can actually re-gift the items back to them. You may have done this before, but what you might not have noticed is that villagers actually know when you re-gift an item to them, and they'll make a little comment about it. Depending on their personality type, they might be a little bit sarcastic, or they might not mind at all. But generally speaking, all of their comments are going to be a little bit snarky because you're literally taking something that they gave you and thought you'd really like and just handing it back to them for some friendship points. How could you do this?
