A week since release, Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch has taken social media by storm! Players have been showing off their unique clothing and designs, fancy interior decorating, and the quirky villagers that have come to settle on their islands. All while trading tips and information in order to find the rarest of in-game items. With so much to explore, let’s take a look at the best guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Animal Crossing is unique in that each player experiences the game differently. Items and DIY (Do It Yourself) recipes can vary vastly from player to player, so it can be difficult to track.
With no official companion app from Nintendo, (NookLink doesn’t count!) it was up to fans to come up with a solution. Meet the ACNH Travel Guide. A third-party solution to help you can keep track of the various bugs, fish, fossils, and more. Including, the appearance dates, the time, the item price, location, weather and more.
This companion app has information on DIY recipes, fruits, villagers, and upcoming in-game events dates. It even provides designer resources for players, all of which are maintained by Animal Crossing community members.
The app itself isn’t without flaws. Currently, the app is only available for iOS… Sorry Android users. Another is the current lack of Southern Hemisphere support. So players from countries such as Australia and South America, or players that simply chose to pick the Southern Hemisphere to have a different creature selection are out of luck.
We reached out to Developer Jeffrey Kuiken to ask if he plans to address these issues and what future plans he has for ACNH Travel Guide.
MysteryBlock – Will ACNH Travel Guide support Android in the future?
Jeffrey Kuiken – “No, I have no plans for Android support at the moment unfortunately. I’m aware that might be a bummer, but the app is a native iOS app which makes bringing the app to Android quite difficult. Instead of putting time and energy into that, I decided to put that into making the iOS app great, and even better in the future.”
MysteryBlock – Will there be Southern Hemisphere support at some point?
Jeffrey Kuiken – “Definitely, it’s something that I want to add to the app very soon. I’m already working on it, it’s coming along nicely, so it shouldn’t be too long before it releases.”
MysteryBlock – What features do you plan to add in the future?
Jeffrey Kuiken – “There’s a big list of features I’d love to add. Notifications for villagers’ birthdays and events, for example. Adding more items to the app is on there as well, furniture, wallpapers, KK Slider songs, those things. And adding translations for all people that play the game in a language other than English. So there’s a lot!”
It seems that until Nintendo responds with an official app of their own, or they release an official guide, members of the Animal Crossing community like Jeffrey Kuiken, will lead the way in providing us the best information for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
You can purchase the ACNH Travel Guide app in the App Store for $2.99.
