Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a title that holds events to celebrate festivities that take place in the real world. However, thanks to time travel, players, unlike in reality, can enjoy them several times and even before they occur. Until recently, users could continue to take advantage of this, but it will no longer be possible.
The most recent update implemented many changes in the game and one of the most talked about in the community is that time travel will lose one of its most important benefits: allowing you to enjoy holidays in advance.
Previously, players could advance the console clock to allow them to take part in events that were not yet available despite the fact that Nintendo had mentioned that it would not work with relevant events for each season.
In case you missed it: TIME magazine recognized Animal Crossing: New Horizons as one of the greatest phenomena of 2020.
Time travel will still be available, but with one important restriction
However, after the most recent update, users have noticed that when trying to use time travel to go to future events, activities related to the holiday do not occur. Polygon confirmed that it cannot be used to advance the Thanksgiving 2020 event.
However, you should know that time travel is still available and can be used to take advantage of events that have already happened, such as Halloween 2020. So, it seems that Nintendo will only ban future events perhaps to prevent users from enjoying new content ahead of time and avoid spoilers.
As you can imagine, this has caused divided opinions in the user base. Well, those who did not use this function celebrate that Nintendo restricts it, while those who did take advantage of it point out that it is unfortunate, since there are those who cannot enjoy the events on the day they occur and try them later (through the trip in time) does not cause the same sensation as if they are played before, when everyone is excited for them.
And you, what do you think of this change? Do you use time travel in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Tell us in the comments.
Due to the vast scope of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the various ways of expressing itself in it, Nintendo does not want political messages to be included. It was recently revealed that it is one of the titles with the most nominations for The Game Awards 2020.
