The major hidden thing about Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Higher resolutions brought greater potential

New Horizons is a lot different from other past titles because of its higher resolution. This brought a challenge to developers as they wanted to create a difference between players’ regular life and New Horizons. Thus, developers gave a lot of thought to which objects would be realistically portrayed.

Villagers were at the bottom of this scale, as they could be stylized to give more unique looks than others. However, that was not the case for the bugs, fish, and other animals, as developers decided to give each of them accurate representations of their real-life selves.

You might know that if you decide to move your villagers’ houses in the middle of the night, you could find them (the villagers) at the Resident Services. Nintendo has given a lot of thought to this as to where else they could go at this hour in late night. Furthermore, you could even see them in their sleeping outfit showing how uncomfortable they are feeling.

Isabelle’s Predictions

After playing for more than a year, most players like to ignore Isabelle’s daily greeting. However, it would be best to always pay attention to Isabelle’s horoscopes. You must listen very carefully to Isabelle’s morning announcement, especially when she reports she has had a lucky horoscope day signals the day to bury 99,000 bells.

On this day, search your island for that glowing crack in the ground, dig up the 1000 bells and bury 99,00. Through this, you could earn yourself 297,000 Bells when the tree grows instead of 30,000, which is the usual amount.

However, you might not know that villagers belonging to frog species don’t like to wear a raincoat on rainy days, unlike other species villagers.

Frogs belong to a group of animals called amphibians, which means two lives as they can live both on land and waters. It’s very interesting how Nintendo decided to show this tiny detail of their existence through an in-game detail.
