Nintendo has rolled out Animal Crossing update 1.3.1 for the Nintendo Switch, which addresses several issues.
Following last week’s 1.3.0 update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, another patch has now been made available for download. The update is a minor one and fixes several bugs, including a bug that prevented players from properly using a zen bridge or red zen bridge placed on top of a cliff. In addition, the new 1.3.1 patch addresses an issue where a wet suit would not be available for sale within Nook’s Cranny.
We’ve included the official patch notes down below:
