Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Information Round Up (September 4th Nintendo Direct)

It's been just under 3 months since we last saw any gameplay of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and a lot has changed! Read below for the latest information on Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

The latest Nintendo Direct gave us a decent 5 minute look at New Horizons. Of course, it was nowhere near as long as what we got during E3, but there's still a lot we have learned from the latest trailer. Here's all the information we gathered from the latest Nintendo Direct:

- Dodo Airlines is the name given to the previously unseen and unnamed airport during E3
- New flowers that resemble poppies are shown. They were shown to come in red and white variations
- Villager speech bubbles have received a slight redesign
- Two new NookPhone apps were shown off. One appears to be a "my design" app, the other is symbolized by a book with a human face on it, which could possibly be a "friends list"
- Your NookPhone can be customized with phone cases
- Fruit is required to be eaten before a tree can be uprooted and replanted (previously shown during E3)
- Villagers can carry a variety of items other than tools, such as books and baskets
- The ability to capture snowflakes during the winter returns
- A large cluster of mushrooms appears during the fall
- Bait that was previously shown off during E3 is shown to work by throwing it into the water, causing a fish to appear
- Bill, Tammy, Filbert, Lily, Butch, Roald, Anotnio, Peewee, Fauna, Peanut, Rosie, Angus, Wolfgang and Lopez all return as villagers

Dodo Airlines

As you can see, it wasn't a huge blow out like we saw at E3, but it was nice to see a few more new additions to the game. Overall the game looks a whole lot nicer than it did during E3. Even a simple update on the grass has made the game that much more visually appealing. Check it out for yourself!
