looks like an assortment of minor holiday items and that's it. not exactly the 2.0 update everyone had hoped for

that said apparently this update is not 2.0, but instead is numbered 1.10. maybe they have something planned for E3? E3 is only a month and a half out from now so

I feel like it's been too long since we've had anything substantial. the last decent update was in January, and the last truly substantial update was last summer. if they do have something big planned for E3, it better be BIG. it's been ages since they've added anything worthwhile.

I don't know if I can even consider this an update! Events that were in the game last year are returning... that's to be expected and certainly not worth an update on it's own. Okay, so they're also adding a few new items, but come on. Is that really it?

It's really disappointing to see Nintendo take this route with ACNH. It could be so much more than what it is. I'd like to believe they have bug updates up their sleeves, but I don't know what they've been waiting for. It's frustrating that a big update we're hoping for keeps getting pushed back: "The one year anniversary update will be big! Okay, but we still have the franchise anniversary... maybe at E3?"

I saw people on Twitter discussing a villager house that looks new... but I'm not convinced it means anything. I feel like if they were going to release new villagers in this update, that would have been announced along with the events. I know Nintendo's island has had hacks before, so I'm wondering if that's all the house is.

yeah I saw people talking about the new house too. I'm almost positive that no new villagers are coming this time around. if they were, they would've lead with that since it'd be more exciting than anything else shown.

that said, I could totally believe that more villagers are coming in a later update and they included the new house in the image by mistake. my money is on either old cut villagers from the N64/GC games or a return of the crossover amiibo villagers. I'd be surprised if they added completely brand new villagers though, unless they were new amiibo crossover villagers

I did have high hopes back in march for a big update. the franchise anniversary though I never really felt was likely to get anything notable. I don't think zelda even got anything worthwhile for its anniversary.

the fact that this is supposedly update 1.10 and not the highly anticipated 2.0 combined with confirmation that E3 is back on this year and that nintendo will be there has me a bit excited, but we've been burned so many times before that I don't want to get my hopes up. I'm cautiously optimistic but ready to be let down

I heard some people comparing the new villager house to the white fence, something shown in a video that may never come...

The new Villager houses,,, do you think maybe for a late anniversary ift they will be returning old N64 villagers? That would be really nice to see especially since characters like Bow and Meow return would be sweet. Im sad that there's nothing super new with the update( besides that wedding bell )

it's possible that the new house might be like the white fence and never show up, but I think an important thing to point out is that the white fence is from the very first trailer we ever saw of the game. it's very common for there to be minor details changed between the first trailer and release. I bet they were planing to make customizable fences, but because of the weird way fences are crafted they ran into issues (not sure why they wouldn't make the white picket fence the default if that were the case but whatever...)

maybe the house is something they were messing with for debugging purposes, but I would still be surprised if crossover amiibo villagers never came back. they'd be so easy to add since all you need to do is retexture an animal, build a house out of existing assets and make a relatively small amount of new furniture items. I see random users online make their own custom villagers all the time so it can't be that hard for a team of professionals.

also monster hunter just came out and is extremely popular right now, and we know breath of the wild 2 and splatoon 3 are coming in the near future as well, so the existing crossover villagers are perfectly set to cross-promote new titles and (possibly) new amiibo

oh from the japanese site (auto translated):

Updated on April 27 : Since it was found that the screen shot that introduced the items of "Children's Day" reflected a house with an appearance that could not appear in the actual game, the corresponding screen was replaced. It was. I must sincerely apologize.

I mean I think we all knew that its inclusion in this particular set of images was a mistake, no doubt about that

I don't think this necessarily disproves new villagers in later updates either though. maybe it was a debugging house like I said in my last post, maybe it was accidentally leaked future content that they're backtracking on, who's to say. I'd still be surprised if crossover amiibos never happen even if this house wasn't related to that.

oooh thats crazy!? and yeah I think bringing back the monster hunter and Legend of Zelda amiibos would be great promotion, maybe retexture it so its Breath of the Wild themed? that would be cool!! : D

This was without a doubt the absolute worst update they have pushed out. There's hardly anything added other than a few minor updates to old events and a couple new items. This is even more disappointing than the last two updates.

When they said 2-3 years of updates, I expected more substantial updates like the April 2020 update, the Summer Wave 1 update, the Halloween update, or the Turkey Day/Toy Day update. Updates that bring back old features, updates that add new features, and updates that bring back missing characters. Not...Oh, here's a couple new items and a small update to an old event. Please....When are we gonna get that big update that adds a substantial amount of new content that makes people want to come back?

When are we gonna get an update that adds something like island tour minigames? When will we see some old NPC's return? When will we finally get The Roost? When will we get some more everyday household furniture? When will there be an update that improves villager interaction? We're waiting...

I feel like they're (maybe) waiting until summer to drop more content, even last year May wasn't that significant of a month for updates. I can't lose hope THIS soon

"When they said 2-3 years of updates, I expected more substantial updates... not Oh, here's a couple new items and a small update to an old event."

I wouldn't mind that the updates are small if we were also getting larger ones. Like, of course not every update will add big new features, but those should be staggered between more substantial updates. I wonder what they're saving for year 3, because they seem to have run out of new ideas now that the holiday updates are out.

It's just a weird business model. Only the most dedicated are going to play for more than a year or 2. So why not give your game all the content you can ASAP so the people who drop off earlier will have a better experience? And then they'll be more likely to buy the next game in the franchise
