Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings with it a bunch of new mechanics and plenty of fun. The first Switch iteration for the long-running franchise has a ton of stuff to do. You can pretty much do anything you want on your little island paradise. And with there being such potential for replayability in this game, there will always be goals to achieve. There are even what would amount to endgame goals, and those are Golden Tools in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The big win with these tools is that they are not only really good looking, but much more useful for the everyday gathering of resources. Upgrading tools in this game is hugely important, as you need to gather resources to upgrade your town itself. Getting better tools will give you a strong base to start from, and Golden Tools in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are the pinnacle.
