Animal Crossing 1.2.1 Update Out Now, But It Doesnt Do Much

Nintendo has rolled out a small new update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. According to the patch notes on the company’s support website, New Horizons’ 1.2.1 update “addressed issues to further ensure an enjoyable gaming experience,” but it doesn’t go into any more detail beyond that.

You’ll need to install the latest update to continue playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons online. If the update isn’t installed automatically, you can do so manually by highlighting the game’s icon on the Switch dashboard, pressing the Plus button, and then selecting Software Update.

New Horizons is in the midst of its Stamp Rally event to celebrate International Museum Day. The event runs through May 31 and has you collecting stamps from different stations that are hidden around the museum’s fish, fossil, and insect exhibits.

After the Stamp Rally event ends, Wedding Season will begin. Throughout the month of June, you’ll be able to meet Reese and Cyrus at Harv’s Island and help them take anniversary photos to earn some “wedding-themed” rewards.

In other Animal Crossing news, a dataminer has discovered the odds that Redd will have all fake artwork in his shop (some of which is totally haunted now). It also appears that the color of your Nook Stop furniture might be determined by the color of your airport.
