Animal Crossing: New Horizons infinite item glitch patched

Animal Crossing: New Horizons trailer showcases community events

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has an infinite item glitch involving the in-game Nintendo Switch, or rather it did, until Nintendo issued the new 1.1.1 hotfix today. The patch only mentions a single major bug being fixed, and dataminers have uncovered that the new exploit for the game has been patched and no longer works as of this update.

Nintendo has also been issuing takedowns to YouTube channels posting videos of the exploit. It’s a very simple glitch to carry out, and only requires a second player and two pieces of furniture. It makes sense that Nintendo would act quickly to remove the exploit before it ruined the in-game economy. After all, developers who spent years working on a game probably would not appreciate having all their hard work go unappreciated by those ruthlessly exploiting the bug.

So if you were one of the lucky ones that got to take advantage of it before it was patched out in the new hotfix, you won’t lose the Bells you duplicated, or at least there have been no reports of players having their accounts reset. And if you’re thinking of having out on patch 1.1 to avoid the fix for now, keep in mind that this update is required for online play. So now, the only way to take advantage of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons dupe glitch is to remain with hardware that has been disconnected from the internet to prevent patching. And as for reverting, there seems to be no way to do that unless you’re using a physical copy of the game with just the 1.0 version and no patches.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for the Nintendo Switch.
