16 Things You Probably Didn’t Know You Could Do In 'Animal Crossing: New Horizons'

There's a lot to digest in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Nintendo's latest social simulation game is packed with more features, items, and abilities (like being able to use the loo) than ever before. There's so much you can do, in fact, that it's easy to miss out on a few key elements. While the game starts off pretty slow, the gameplay starts to take off rather quickly, which means there are quite a few helpful Animal Crossing tips that are either glazed over quickly or not explained at all. (Hey, it's not Tom Nook's fault—he has a lot going on.) That's why simple tips and hacks like these can come in handy.

More than just a simulation game, New Horizons gives gamers the ability to create a world that's entirely their own. They can hop to other people's islands, trade goods and, even make a few friends along the way. And while Animal Crossing games are designed, nay, encouraged, to be played at a leisurely pace, knowing how to perform certain tasks without wasting time (or Bells) is sure to help.

Vote up all the Animal Crossing tricks and tips in New Horizons you found the most useful so other villagers can make the most out of their little island paradise.
