Eggs have taken over Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Bunny Day seemed like it was gonna be a bunch of charming wholesome fun. The first seasonal event for Animal Crossing New Horizons is actually quite dumb, to be honest. Whether it be the infestation of various eggs or the creepy rabbit, Zipper, this event causes more frustration than enjoyment. In my experience so far, Bunny Day is off to a not so great start.
Eggs, Eggs Everywhere!
No matter what you do in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there’s no escaping the newly introduced Easter eggs. They can appear in the sky, underground and most annoyingly in the ocean and the trees. Gathering resources has become extremely tedious.
With each new month in Animal Crossing comes new fish, bugs, and more to collect. Most of my time in New Horizons has been spent fishing to fill up my museum. That is now basically impossible. Every time I go to catch one, an egg is caught instead. If I wanted eggs, I’d start my own chicken farm.
They’re also effecting fossils too. As you walk around, seeing that little X made out of dirt normally brings a smile to your face. Unfortunately, when you thrust that shovel into the ground guess what? That’s right, more eggs for you good sir.
The New Recipes Are Dumb
The newly introduced craftable items are stupid. For example, you can use your eggs to craft yourself an egg costume. I’m ashamed to admit I crafted this and was immediately laughed at by my villagers. That frog, Diva, can be quite the nasty little amphibian. The majority of the new items are unfortunately themed around eggs. This lack of variety is honestly very disappointing. I don’t know why there’s an obsession with eggs, but it’s very creepy. Maybe this is a part of some evil plan to advertise the sale of eggs?
Zipper Is Terrifying
Zipper is a new NPC that will show his creepy face randomly until the event is over. At first he was harmless. However, my encounter with him scared the living daylights out of me. I was taking an evening stroll. My Island was open for business. All my friends were visiting to speak with the cute little owl, Celeste. Things were going smoothly until he arrived. Zipper decided that it was a good idea to stalk the main entrance to my Island.
So as I went to greet my visitors, his demonic rabbit face just stared at us. Speaking with him reveals that he’s infested the island with new crafting recipes. If they’re egg-related, I’m blaming this guy.
It’s Made Animal Crossing: New Horizons Boring
I can’t put my finger on it, but the Bunny Day update has changed the game somehow. The atmosphere isn’t as calm or relaxing. Personally, I think it has something to do with the repetitiveness of finding the same old nonsense. Before April commenced, I was very much enjoying my island life. The multitude of egg-related propaganda has significantly reduced the amount of time I’ve played it. Every single one of my villagers are hyping up the main event on April 12. This better be worth it, we’ve got another nine days of this horseplay.
As you can see, Bunny Day has made playing the game unnecessarily tedious. Before the update arrived, I was enjoying fishing for new specimens to fill up my collection. Now, all that has been put on hold because of those stupid eggs. If you’re an egg enthusiast, the Bunny Day update might be for you. Well, if you excuse me. I’m going to drive myself crazy catching some “sea eggs.”
How are you finding the Bunny Day update? Are you having more fun or are you like me who thinks it made the game more boring? Tell us below!
