Did Nintendo ruin the Bunny Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

A lot of players were not happy with the event last year and were wondering whether it would be the same or will come with some improvements. Interestingly, Nintendo has listened to the fans’ feedback and made some changes to Bunny Day.

The developers reduced the Bunny Day event duration from 12 days to 8 days this year. This change received a warm welcome from the New Horizons community.

Users needed to collect all six types of Easter eggs to trade them for amazing DIY recipes. After collecting all the DIY recipes, they had to make sure to get the last reward from Zipper, which was a wand. Unfortunately, all the DIY recipes and wand were the same as last year. As a result, players who’d taken part in 2020 couldn’t enjoy themselves fully this year.

There were more than 50 DIY recipes that could be crafted, and all the items were the same as last year. Hence, many users who have been playing the game since its launch already had all the items. Even the Bunny Day wand is the same as last year. However, Nintendo lets players buy some amazing items from Nooks Cranny every day.
