Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire, UK analyzed keyword search data sourced from Google for every villager, furnishing, houseware, and clothing item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In the process, we’re able to learn about the most / least popular villagers in the game and more.

Among the highlights is that Marshall was determined to be the most popular character “by far, beating the next most popular by 81,000 avg. monthly searches”. Sadly, Clyde was the least popular with just 590.

As another interesting note, 60 percent of the top 20 most sought-after characters are female and 70 percent of the least popular are male. Based on the data, cats are the most popular villager species (25 percent of the top 20) whereas in contrast, Frogs are the least popular overall. Although the most popular personality types were ‘Normal’ and ‘Lazy’, the least popular were ‘Cranky’, ‘Jock’, and ‘Snooty’.

Here’s the full set of data:

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast 100, both Oni Dino and Galen are exhausted and a little loopy… But there are some great games to talk about.

A whole bunch of critters just left Animal Crossing: New Horizons to close out September. But now that we’re in October, a new wave of bugs, fish, and underwater creatures can be found in the game.

Here’s the full roundup:

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was updated to 1.5.0 with major functionality. Players now have access to fall and Halloween features.

There was one unintended side effect of the update, though. Version 1.5.0 introduced a new bug with Nook Miles that Nintendo intends to fix with an upcoming patch.

The company said the following on its Japanese Twitter account, as translated by Oni Dino of Nintendo Everything:

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta play Animal Crossing: New Horizons to kick off the fall. Check out the full episode below.

Nintendo has sent out a new Halloween commercial for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Get a look at the Japanese advert below.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ latest patch introduces new features for the fall season, but that’s not all. We’re hearing reports that the patch has removed some popular hacked items. If you update, they’ll be taken out of your game. On the other hand, if you don’t update, you won’t be able to access the new fall content.

Players have brought various hacked items into Animal Crossing: New Horizons, such as Harv’s fence. Harvey lives alone on Photopia, and much of the island is blocked off with fences. The fence can’t be obtained through regular means, but has become a popular hacked item.

Hacked items don’t provide any real benefits and are mainly used for decoration. However, Nintendo may feel that they’re in violation of their player agreements.
