With the release of the Bunny Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons players found some fun new items to craft by collecting many different types of eggs within the games various tropical islands. There were multiple types of eggs that could be collected like you would normally gather resources, but users noticed a problem. The sheer volume of eggs hidden around player islands by Zipper quickly eclipsed regular spawns. The eggs replaced basic and rare resources alike, leading many players to feel frustrated that their regular play was interrupted by a deluge of eggs.
Nintendo didn’t release patch notes for the update that shared full details. A rough translation of the few details released about Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.1.4 reveals that the developer has instituted a fix for this problem.
The update includes a “balance adjustment,” as “during the Easter event, the appearance rate of some eggs has been adjusted until April 11, 2020.” However, thanks to this patch, it will be “easier to collect [eggs] on the day of Easter (April 12, 2020).”
Being the latest patch to the popular Switch game, this update follows other updates that made the game better. The 1.1.1 update fixed that useful item duplication exploit for infinite Bells. The 1.1.3 patch also worked in some changes to the in-game mechanics, dealing with some issues surrounding the mysterious floating presents.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out for Nintendo Switch now.
