Winter Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update Changes Time Travel

Time travel is one of the aspects that players love or dislike in Animal Crossing, which doesn’t seem to have any aspect in between. For lovers of the New Horizons version of Doctor (Who), the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update makes drastic changes to how this solution works in the game.

The new winter update is here and brings two events with Turkey Day (on Thanksgiving Day at 6am Pacific time until November 26) and Toy Day (December 24 with items to come on December 1), as well as random dream destinations with ” Options that surprise me with Luna.

In addition to the usual fixes and winter update features that were shown earlier this month, Nintendo finally addressed the in-game time travel function, a tip that players use by changing the time settings on their systems to adjust the time. their islands.

Now, players will not be able to move forward for special events but can only step back. Players will be able to travel back in time to sell turnips and previous events, but no longer peek at future events as they do now.

For curious people, here are the full patch notes shared by Nintendo:

General updates

Two seasonal events, Turkey Day and Toy Day have been added.

Residents can access Residency Services to request increased storage space in their homes.

Now, Luna can come up with random dream destinations by selecting the “Surprise Me” option.

A new feature for transferring stored data between different systems has been added.

This feature only transfers saved data to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. When necessary, please use the “Transfer your user data” feature on the Nintendo Switch as well.

The following has also been added:

  • Additional Nook Miles redemption items.
  • Seasonal items have an additional term from Nook Shopping.
  • Additional homemade recipes use seasonal ingredients.
  • Additional Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Collaboration Items.
  • The problem has been fixed

Other tweaks and tweaks have been made to improve the gaming experience.

A lot of players use travel time to go back to old events and new events that are taking place. This is also a favorite trick by those who do not have as much time in the game as others but have the same amount of experience building islands. For those who oppose this mechanic, they are really against it, at least if the section commented on anything Animal Crossing ever had.

[Update] After checking the time travel time for yourself, it seems that you can still time travel forward a little, but you can not time travel in specific days in the future blocked for events as in the past. We are still testing other blocks, but it seems that the move in the coming time is limited but not completely removed.
