Animal Crossing New Horizons Update 2.0 Has Released Early

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons update has seemingly been pushed out by Nintendo two days early.

The 2.0 update went live last night for those who own a copy of the game. None of the official Twitter accounts have made reference to the update being live. So right now it’s unclear why it was made live early. 

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons update is full of new things to do. To the surprise of few but the joy of many, Brewster was revealed to be coming back to the game. You’ll be able to find his cafe inside the museum now the update is out. However, the brewmaster bird wasn’t the only addition. The game has received an update to home decoration, you can add more slopes and inclines, and there’s more items too. Including the most important item, the froggy chair.

Also new with the update is cooking. You can grow a variety of vegetables, and cook up a variety of meals with them. Players have suspected that more than pumpkins would be added to the game for a while. Dataminers found that there were other vegetables planned last year, so it’s great to see them finally in the game.

Why Nintendo pushed the update early is anyone’s guess. The Happy Home Paradise isn’t available yet though. It could be that they wanted fans to have a bit of time to dig into the update before the DLC’s release.
