Are you enjoying the Bunny Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? While it’s the Nintendo Switch title’s first in-game event, many players think there are too many egg-centric things to do—but the latest update is looking to reduce the number of eggs you can find on your island.

Version 1.1.4 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently being pushed out to Nintendo Switch owners and according to the official Nintendo support page, the number of changes are small but may make the current event more bearable.

Here’s the translated patch notes for Animal Crossing: New Horizons:


Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused Rex Kurushima to receive “Platinum Kogane” and pass different items to different models.
    After the update, pass the “Platinum Kogane” to Rex again, and you will receive the correct model.

Balance adjustment

  • During the Easter event, the appearance rate of some eggs has been adjusted until April 11, 2020.

Fans have voiced their displeasure with the current Bunny Event in New Horizons since its start. The problems are two-fold, according to players. The first is the amount of Eggs that are appearing, especially the Sea Eggs.

Sea Eggs are found through fishing, which normally would produce fish or items like old tires and boots. These can be used to sell for bells, in crafting or to donate to the museum. However, the use of fishing rods in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not infinite. After a number of uses, fishing rods will break and force players to craft new ones. That has left fans annoyed that instead of finding fish they are only seeing Sea Eggs, especially after players have crafted all the DIY Recipes for this event.

The second problem is the items and clothing that are crafted. While a subjective matter, some players feel that this event hasn’t produced anything to get excited for or give a reason to farm for the various Eggs.

Hopefully this update will mitigate the number of Eggs found in the water, but with the update releasing Monday it’s too early to tell.

Also, with the start of April, new Fish and Insects have begun appearing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Refer to our handy April Fish and Bug guide to learn all about the various critters you can catch to fill up your critterpedia.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for Nintendo Switch.
