Turnips can be a huge money-maker in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but it’s not always possible if your selling prices aren’t great. Luckily, there’s a way to predict the best time to sell for maximum profit.

New Horizons released onto the Nintendo Switch on March 20, after an agonizing six-year wait since the last mainline entry in the life simulation series. Fans were so eager to get their hands on the game that it broke sales records in its opening weekend, becoming the fastest-selling title on the console to date.

One of the main goals for new players is to save up Bells to pay off Tom Nook’s house loan, and one of the best ways of doing that is by selling turnips bought from Daisy Mae to Timmy and Tommy for a high amount. Sadly, their buying prices fluctuate a lot, and they’ll offer to take them off your hands for way less than you initially paid – which obviously isn’t ideal.

How to sell turnips for millions in New Horizons

The ‘Animal Crossing Turnip Price Forecaster‘ is a fantastic tool created by a fan that allows you to predict when your selling price “spike” will be with the two raccoons. It works by having the player input their stalk market prices from the last few days, and figuring out the best way to make a profit.

The tool performs best when used for a couple of weeks, so don’t be surprised if you don’t get accurate numbers straight away – you need to input as many numbers from previous days as you can for it to predict the correct spike.

Timmy and Tommy’s buying prices change twice a day at 8AM and 12PM, so you’ll need to note down both prices on the Forecaster for it to work as accurately as it can.
The tools tells you when your turnip spike will be, potentially netting you millions in profits depending on how many you have to sell.

Note that you can’t sell turnips on a Sunday due to the fact that it stops players from buying them from Daisy Mae and then turning around and flipping them for a higher price straight away.

You’ll also need to sell them by 10PM on Saturday nights, otherwise they’ll turn rotten and all those hard-earned Bells spent on them will be down the drain – the same thing happens when you time travel, too.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
