Nintendo has released a new software update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons that now sees the Nintendo Switch exclusive on version 1.1.1.

This has addressed “a serious issue” that had affected game balance, which is believed to have been the item duplication glitch that was discovered.

It also continues to make preparations for the upcoming Bunny Day seasonal event, which will require you to soon download a separate update to version 1.1.1a.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
