Another day, another Animal Crossing: New Horizons patch. The game has been updated fairly regularly since it launched toward the end of March, but the latest patch brings some incredibly good news: Bunny Day egg appearance rates have been adjusted.
The New Horizons 1.1.4 patch notes detail that the update "adjusts rate of drops for some eggs until April 11," as per regular Nintendo translator @OatmealDome on Twitter. Thank the lord, it's about damn time.
AC:NH version 1.1.4 is now available to download.- OatmealDome (@OatmealDome) April 6, 2020
- Fixes Flick not giving you the right model for the "Platinum Kogane" (can't find the English name for the bug, sorry!)
- Adjusts rate of drops for some eggs until Apr 11th
- Eggs become easier to collect on Easter (Apr 12th) https://t.co/QI3IcA0Sc2
Last week, the horrendous Zipper T. Bunny appeared on islands worldwide, to announce the upcoming Bunny Day event on April 12. Eggs then started spawning all over the island, taking the place of fossils, balloon presents, fish, and wood that you'd normally obtain through digging, slingshotting, fishing, and chopping trees, respectively.
This became incredibly old, incredibly quickly. You'd frequently find more eggs in the sea than you would fish, and even if there were some workarounds for this (dropping bait in the sea would guarantee you a fish, for example), it was still pretty damn annoying. And to top it all off, Zipper T. Bunny is gross as hell.
The new patch is available to download for Animal Crossing: New Horizons right now. Keep in mind that the egg rates are adjusted from now until April 12, when Zipper T. Bunny will descend upon our islands once again for the spectacular/godawful Bunny Day celebrations.
