This update will sure be a great gateway for us that are still in quarantine, but still want to soak up the sun and do some swimming!

The 1.3.1 Patch update was released recently to fix issues that may occur for players when using the summer update. The fixes are as follows:

  • Fixed issue of zen bridge and how players could not walk on it if the bridge was placed on the highest point of their island (3rd tier cliff)
  • Fixed issue of not being able to buy a wetsuit in Nook’s Cranny
  • Fixed issue of hermit crabs appearing outside of the beach
  • Fixed issue of dialogue bubbles appearing after speaking with residents

Since the summer update fixes have been introduced, we can now enjoy our summer through our Animal Crossing character! Happy gaming!
