Animal Crossing: New Horizons' latest update removes the "camo" glitch and limits time traveling

Some fixes Nintendo didn't mention

Nintendo shared patch notes for the latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons update, but as usual, those notes don't give us full details on bugs that are fixed. Fans have to find those changes out the hard way.

Now that players have spent some time with the new update, some changes have been discovered. First up, Nintendo has done away with the "camo" glitch, which let players could use to have any item take on a certain color/texture. That has now been fixed, leaving players to work with the options Nintendo provides.

Along with that, the latest update also tweaks how time traveling works. Players can still rewind the clock on their Switch to visit past events, but they can no longer hop ahead in time to enjoy new content. If you've been a time-traveling islander, it looks like your only options now are the past or the present.

Thank goodness, tired of people spoiling the events and items!

I'm glad to hear that! It finally puts that argument to an end about how Nintendo feels about time traveling. You'd be surprised at how many of the people who time travel convinced themselves "well if Nintendo didn't want us doing it, they'd have done something to prevent it". Well, now they have, so put that in your pipe and smoke it. I just wish it was there from day one and not 7 months later.

This only relates to timed releases like Turkey Day and Toy Day, not time travel for island visitors, villager hunting, and seasonal changes like what fish and bugs are available. I could be wrong, but I feel like that's the majority of what people time travel for in the game.

Yeah, those people will continue doing it for those reasons, though I still disagree with it. This is a series you buy when you are ready to commit to it for the long haul, it's not the type of game you buy and then expect to rush through and get everything in 2 months or less.

Huh, I wonder how that works? How can the game tell whether the console clock has been changed artificially or not?
