Nintendo Minute is never a minute! We hope you’re all enjoying the island life so far in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Today we thought we’d show you what our islands look like so far. It’s nice that we can still meet and hang out in the game. Let us know how your islands are coming along and if your friends have visited. As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you soon!
Here's a really interesting one for you. Animal Crossing: New Horizons hasn't officially released in China yet, but an update is available for the game. This is Version 1.1.1, which includes a fix for the item duplication bug, and also gives players access to Bunny Day. The update lacks online multiplayer and design sharing, but it's still pretty surprising to see the update made available in China. We'll have to wait to see if this was a mistake, or Tencent/Nintendo will continue to share updates for a game that hasn't officially been released in the region.

Even though Animal Crossing: New Horizons just got an update to Version 1.1.2 earlier this week, Nintendo has already fired out yet another patch. This brings the game up to Version 1.1.3, and the official patch notes say that Nintendo has fixed an issue where balloons stop showing up. We reported on that issue just yesterday, which was impacting quite a few players. Now it's not a worry anymore!
Just last year we featured a story on Audie, the 88-year-old grandmother who was a huge fan of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She spent 3,500 hours with the game, playing for nearly 4 years straight. Her story went far and wide in the Nintendo community, and she may have gotten a tribute in New Horizons! Wondering what the grandma is up to now? Turns out she just got a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, along with the Animal Crossing-themed Switch! Check out her unboxing video above.
