Imagine that after months of work building a beautiful island paradise, the representative of your community disappears without a trace and without saying goodbye. His house is empty. Nobody builds infrastructure anymore and you are left to your own devices with your neighbors. Then all of a sudden the lights in his house come on. Your neighbor and friend is back again to take a look at all the news on the island! You run to greet him and when you walk in, you discover that his house is full of roaches.
It could be a nice made-up story based on the big new update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which has brought back a ton of gamers from the title, but no: it’s actually happening. Many users are discovering how their houses have been filled with cockroaches on their return (you have to clean the house, pigs) and how the neighbors react to this situation.
That is the scene received by many players who returned after a long hiatus to Animal Crossing: New Horizons after its latest update 2.0 that, among many other interesting news, allow other villagers to visit your house while you are there.
Actually, now you can’t stop the neighbors coming in to greet you at home; If you’re inside long enough, they’ll knock on the door and walk in alone. It is quite a nice interaction, since under normal circumstances they will congratulate you on your furniture and offer you a thank you gift for letting them in.
But an unfortunate combination of circumstances has caused many of these visits to be cut short by the presence of gross cockroaches. Many players were caught off guard by the release of Update 2.0 a day ahead of schedule, crashing. Since many players hadn’t caught the game in months, when they first went online, their house was infested with roaches. Normally, that is not a problem, since you can run from room to room and squash them to have your house bug free in a few minutes.
However, with the new update, many players are having villagers approach within seconds of entering their houses to welcome, before they can get rid of all the critters. Many may not even wait for visitors, as it is a new feature and it stands to reason that not everyone has noticed all the details of what the new update includes.
It turns out that nobody is amused to meet a cockroach at home, as is normal. If you really want to avoid this interaction, the best thing you can do is clean the house before downloading the new update. But if you’ve already downloaded it, you’ll have to hurry up and stomp on those roaches as quickly as possible before someone sees how disastrous you are. Will other special interactions occur with other objects or animals? We will try to find out.
