Animal Crossing: New Horizons patch 1.1.4 has altered the rates of “some” eggs appearing during the Bunny Day event (via VGC).
In the Easter-themed event, different types of eggs spawn on islands after Zipper T. Bunny arrives. These eggs—found in the earth, trees, sky, stones, and water—can be crafted into a number of different seasonal items, from furniture to outfits. However, players have been less than happy about the frequency of the eggs’ appearance when they’d rather get something with a higher value. “Generally events don’t interfere with the flow of the game. Turning most of the fish into eggs is pretty frustrating. I’m not mad about it and I am grateful for so much time to get event stuff, but I understand why people would be unhappy with this,” explained one player.

Patch 1.1.4 has adjusted the rate at which “some” eggs will now pop up on islands. It is not clear whether Nintendo has heard its players’ displeasure and responded accordingly, or whether the developer found that the mandatory lockdowns in many countries were affecting how the event was perceived by players. Also, we don’t know which of the six egg types have been altered, but hopefully this change will rebrand Bunny Day before it ends on April 12.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for the Nintendo Switch.
