Animal Crossing: New Horizons patch update 1.1.1 has removed an item duplication exploit

Animal Crossing: New Horizons patch update 1.1.1 has removed an item duplication exploit which was uncovered earlier this week.Nintendo announced that there are some huge seasonal events on the way and that it will continue to update Animal Crossing with small patches to see them incorporated smoothly, as well as patching out bugs that happen to pop up like this item glitch.

This latest update which went live on March 26 was only tiny and it seems that the only thing the patch was for was to remove an item duplication exploit you could do in local multiplayer.The glitch allowed players who were in local co-op to create multiple versions of items in-game, to then sell them en-masse for a huge profit.

It turns out this "serious bug" was the duplication glitch. While it was still active, this glitch allowed for two local multiplayer friends to put an item on a table, and if one player repeatedly turned the item, it would spawn multiple copies of the same item, which the other player could then take and claim for their own. You can probably imagine how this would have been used to game the system. If you want to Buy Animal Crossing NH Bells, we can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.

Note that it actually is possible to continue using the duplication exploit if you simply cancel the patch download for New Horizons on your Switch. You won't be able to play online without the new patch though (except for local co-op multiplayer with another person), and once you have installed it, the glitch is gone forever.

Your copy of the game should update automatically but if for some reason it doesn’t, you can manually trigger the update by pressing the + button on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons home screen icon, selecting Software Update, and hitting Via The Internet.
