Animal Crossing: New Horizons still hate the incline limit

The trailer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has shown a lot of cool stuff that players can do on their Island. From planting trees to visiting villagers, the game has it all. The trailer even showcased the Island’s museum as well, which players can visit on various occasions. The shot of the museum even showed various inclines placed near for the fans to travel on.

However, Animal Crossing: New Horizons know that there are certain limitations to building inclines. Fans of the game can only place eight of them at a particular time on their Island. This prevents them from designing extravagant areas on their Islands, and fans continue to hate this limit. Along with that, they are also disappointed that the developers showcased this feature without revealing its limitations on the trailer.

Still many missing features of the game

A Reddit post on r/AnimalCrossing even talked about the lack of many features that were shown on the trailer. This includes the White Picket Fence which made an appearance as well. Other than that, they also hate that they can’t place these inclines and center them to the museum. Instead, they are forced to place two inclines leading up to it for a symmetrical design.
