It’s a prosperous time indeed for Nintendo, and the steady stream of updates Animal Crossing: New Horizons can’t hurt its longevity.
The most recent update for the game, patch 1.4.1, has gotten rid of hacked trees—mana from heaven for those who were hacked off with the idea of trees that could be modded to grow items other than fruit. Wonderful!
