Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update Reduces Easter Eggs

The latest update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has seen Nintendo reduce the number of eggs for players to find in the Bunny Day event; Animal Crossing's annual Easter event. The reduction came after public outcry, suggesting there were too many in the game.

The news came as Nintendo released patch notes for version 1.1.4. "During the Easter event, the appearance rate of some eggs has been adjusted until April 11, 2020'' the patch notes read. The rate of eggs is due in increase again on April 12. to celebrate Easter Sunday.

It is thought that the eggs that have been reduced, are those that can be caught whilst fishing, although this is not yet clear.

People that have recently been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons will have been forced into the Bunny Day event, where Zipper the rabbit has been infecting the island with eggs, replacing many resources that players would normally find and collect. Many players have taken to social media to address the issue.

This eggtastic event has caused trouble for the players who are not concerned about participating in the Easter event. The event includes a huge variety of egg-infused furniture and outfits. You can find the list of Bunny Day recipes here.

The number of eggs can be quite overwhelming, especially for those players that just want to spend their day fishing, since it is possible to waste resources by constantly reeling in eggs, from the pond.


The same has happened with Sky Eggs, which are attached to balloons that can be shot down using the slingshot. Furthermore, whenever you whack a rock for iron, players are receiving Stone Eggs frequently.

Thankfully, Nintendo has listened to fans and has issued a fix, addressing the issue.
