There is no doubt that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is among the games of the moment, a best seller on the Nintendo Switch, and capable of entertaining thousands of players around the world stranded at home due to the coronavirus Covid-19 emergency. We have chosen ten tricks to learn immediately from those that can be exploited at the beginning of the adventure to those for more experienced users.
1 - When visiting another player's digital island in multiplayer, the advice is to completely empty the pockets of each instrument so that you can fill up with items to collect. You will always find Animal Crossing DIY recipes to build tools on site.
2 - In addition to known friends, you can find codes to reach other islands for example in groups like those of Reddit.
4 - It is essential to access the game every day, because by connecting to the servers you will receive the daily reward. You will have to go to Punto Nook where Tom, Mirco and Marco live. Even if it is the only action during the day, it is good not to forget it.
4 - To quickly select Animal Crossing items such as fishing rods or nets, you can press the left or right arrow of the digital controller, with the arrow at the bottom the object will be stored.
5 - To manually add the patterns found around (not those received from the characters) you must use the mobile phone and open the inventory with the X button. Each pattern is a pink card with an acorn icon, you will learn them by interacting with it.
6 - To build furniture items or tools you have to go to Tom Nook's tent and use the crafting table at the far right using the materials collected.
7 - If you get stuck in an area of the map, perhaps behind a newly built piece of furniture, it is advisable to open your mobile phone, press the left trigger and choose the rescue application. It costs a few Nook Miles Tickets but will bring you back to the center of the island.
8 - Use the hatchet on trees as much as possible to obtain not only fine wood, but also to drop twigs and, occasionally, even stars.
9 - Time on the game passes in a realistic way, so for those who do not want to wait to build and cultivate, you can set the console clock from seven to ten days back and, from time to time, move it a few hours. A practice that can certainly help those who get bored in the first phase of the game, a bit slow, but which should not be abused.
10 - We end with a trick that is a bit extreme and that undermines the spirit of the game, a bit like being immortal in a shooter. To have practically infinite stars, the trick of time is used. Since you can have a maximum of 99999, you can set the clock on the year 2000 and then start the game, deposit as many stars as you have and close it. We change the clock on 2060 and start again to have the total to the maximum.
