Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Hourly Themes, Ranked

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Hourly Themes, Ranked

My favorite part of Animal Crossing games is the unique music for every hour of the day. In New Horizons, the tracks appear after the island’s Resident Services building is upgraded, giving players 24 individual themes to enjoy.

A little bit of Ian Walker lore: I used to freelance as a music critic. It never paid the bills, but it was a fun way to flex my writing muscles. So, as an ode to my...

Animal Crossing Update Dials Back The Damn Bunny Day Eggs

Animal Crossing Update Dials Back The Damn Bunny Day Eggs

Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Bunny Day event replaced a large percentage of the items players harvest to earn bells and craft cool items with stupid colored eggs. Today’s patch makes the egg drops much less frequent, at least until Easter Sunday.

Since the Bunny Day celebration started last week, trying to collect fish or dig up fossils in New Horizons has sucked . Just last night I fished...

Link To The Past's Hyrule Recreated In Animal Crossing

That is a lot of terraforming.

VaynMaanen has taken their regular Animal Crossing island of Forsena and completely transformed it into the Link to the Past version of Zelda’s Hyrule, from towns to waterfalls to mountains.

Monday's Best Deals: NVIDIA Shield, Dyson Ball, Witcher III, and...Read on The Inventory

That is, uh, a lot of work, but it also looks fantastic, not just as a homage, but...

The Do's And Don'ts Of Visiting Friends In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The Do's And Don'ts Of Visiting Friends In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

One of the true pleasures of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the sense of connection. It’s not just that Nintendo’s life sim has achieved near-universal ubiquity in a matter of days. It’s the fact that you, alongside up to seven other players, can go and visit a friend’s island. There, you can do what you’d do on your island: fish, catch bugs, play dress-up. Except you’re doing it together....

Man Brings Tom Nook To Life With His Nipple

Man Brings Tom Nook To Life With His Nipple

These are trying times. One man keeps making the internet a better place with his low-cost cosplay. Thank goodness for that!

Kotaku first profiled Anucha “Cha” Saengchart (aka “Lonelyman”) and his inexpensive cosplay way back in 2014. Since then, he’s continued to delight and amuse. His latest Tom Nook creation is something else. 

This isn’t his first body paint cosplay. He’s done memorable,...

K.K. Slider Sold Out

K.K. Slider Sold Out

Yesterday, after a couple weeks playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, K.K. Slider finally made an appearance on my island. But the traveling canine guitarist has apparently become hot shit over the last two decades, so much so that he wouldn’t deign to visit until I took painstaking steps to bring my island up to his specific standards. Just who does this mutt think he is?

K.K. Slider has...

Don’t Let FOMO Ruin Animal Crossing: New Horizons For You

Don’t Let FOMO Ruin Animal Crossing: New Horizons For You

I had my first opportunity to try out some online play in Animal Crossing: New Horizons the weekend before last. My sister and my friend visited my island so I could give them some of the stuff I had accrued during my extra two weeks with the game. They grabbed new fits at the Able Sisters clothing shop, which had yet to arrive in their games, and marveled at how big my house was. Afterward,...

As Kotaku previously posted investigative report, if people can create dicks in a game, they will.

But first, know that in New Horizons, people...

I'm Driving Myself Crazy Trying To Name My Animal Crossing Island
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

It is important, in these trying times, to take it easy on yourself. That self-critical voice constantly berating you in your head? Turn it down to a whisper. Unfortunately, I am a gigantic dummy incapable of following my own advice. Case in point: I’ve spent the better part of three days (and...

Don’t Neglect Turnips In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

If you ask me, Animal Crossing is much more fun when you don’t spend all your time in the pursuit of money. But if you’re set on making bank, New Horizons offers you a bunch of good ways to indulge your inner Scrooge. One such option that many new players will gain access to this coming weekend is the Stalk Market, where you can buy and sell turnips and, if you play your rutabagas right, rake...

I’m So Happy There’s A Wheelchair In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I’m So Happy There’s A Wheelchair In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There is a wheelchair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It’s nothing fancy. It doesn’t roll. The power wheelchair I use in real-life would crush it like a monster truck. But it is there, in the game, and it makes me very happy.

I’ve been paralyzed from the chest down for two years . Half of my life is spent in my wheelchair. I don’t love it. I don’t hate it. It’s just how things are now. I’m...

It Sucks Being Player 2 In Animal Crossing

It Sucks Being Player 2 In Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is all about working together and building a sense of community, but if you’re not the primary player account on the game, it’s a lot harder to participate.

New Horizons lets you make one island per Switch, and up to eight players can live on it together. But only one of those players can be what Nintendo calls “first resident,” meaning the player who originally...
