The new update also includes heaps of framed images. Players will be able to hang pictures of other villagers in their homes, including those of Able Sisters, Kapp'n, Blathers, Brewster, and even series stalwart Mr. Rosetti.
It reiterates that Nintendo has an array of smaller updates in store that will be rolled out sooner rather than later.
Here's a look at most of the new items added to the game:
It is unclear at the moment if this was an intentional move by Nintendo. However, players are free to download version 2.0 right now. This update, as previously announced by the developers, will be the last free content update for New Horizons.
However, as already mentioned, the title will continue to receive minor updates that fix bugs and add seasonal events and their corresponding items.
Animal Crossing: New Horizon's first paid DLC hasn't been released yet. It is set to be rolled out on November 5 and will allow players to take on interesting jobs and roles.
Players will be able to design dream vacation homes for the villagers residing on their islands. It remains to be seen if gamers can do the same for villagers that only spawn during specific events.
