YouTuber is unhappy with the current state of Animal Crossing New Horizons

According to Protendo, recent updates for New Horizons have been underwhelming. The title offers minimal content with each update, and players don’t really have a lot to do. The latest game feels event-based and lacks a progression system.

Not only that, the studio is repeating last year’s content this year as well, which is not satisfactory at all. Art Museum exhibit on Museum Day, May Day event maze, and more have already appeared once.

The Mario update seemed big at first but when it went live, it offered negligible content. The community has been clamoring for bulk crafting, ordering multiple nook miles items, upgrade to the DIY system, and more. There are a lot of things that Nintendo needs to add to the game, and yet it is missing for a year.

Ner Horizons has no progression system

In the previous games, players had to work towards each upgrade and to achieve each increment on the island. Renovating and upgrading buildings to massive establishments was a challenge in itself. However, these elements are missing from New Horizons, as the studio merely offers everything easily.

This state of the game feels weak and very dull, as players have nothing to achieve. New Horizons continues to downplay itself with each update, and Nintendo has a lot of work on its plate. The community has been clamoring for things that existed in the previous edition, and they are largely missing.
