Animal Crossing Patch Notes: New in Update 1.1.1 in New Horizons
Here are the notes on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 1.1.1 patch, released on March 26, 2020, with the credit of Nintendo and copied literally from the official Animal Crossing website.
- Fixed a serious issue affecting game balance.
There is not much to do there – but the players on reddit have found that this refers to the technical problem of duplicating objects, which allowed players to create multiple versions of the game object – to then be sold for the purpose of profit.
Understandably, Nintendo wanted to remove this exploit as soon as possible. If you want to take advantage of this, be sure to keep your console offline (or the game running, as it won’t download the patch until you close it).
That said, even if the game is running, you can’t use Animal Crossing’s online features, including checking the list of best friends, until the patch is downloaded.
