Bizarre Animal Crossing: New Horizons glitch lets players walk on water

A strange, yet hilarious bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is allowing players to go “out of bounds” and literally run around on water – Jesus style.

Glitches are nothing new in New Horizons: there’s been item duplication exploits, villager moving issues, and more since its release. Nintendo is usually quick to patch the more serious errors out, so it’s becoming all the more rare to find one – especially those that affect play in such a serious way.

Animal Crossing players have discovered a new bug that luckily isn’t of the game-breaking type, and is just a bit of fun that sees your character jumping atop bridges and walking through rivers like it’s nothing.

No, not that kind of bug.

Reddit user ‘3llowh‘ discovered the bizarre glitch by total accident, and it’s something that could probably be a bundle of laughs with friends over online multiplayer.

Using a rock, they managed to launch their character on top of the nearby bridge by hitting it with their shovel and then digging a hole at the right time to propel themselves.

The AC fan then leaps off the bridge and into the river below, wading through the water with a carefree spirit as though it’s always been a feature and not an odd glitch.

The player’s river is short due to their waterfall placement, but if you have a longer river area then you can have more fun with this bug – you could even create some sort of water game with your friends.

This could be a fun glitch to explore with friends.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has proven to be a smash success ever since its release on March 20. Millions of players – both new and old – dived head first into the game, and fell in love.

It sold so well, that it broke sales records in its opening weekend alone, and shifted over 13.41 million units in just six weeks, making it the most successful Nintendo Switch title to date.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Pokemon fans praised the creator’s work, such as one user who exclaimed, “This is so cool!!! You did an amazing job on these.” Another player agreed and wrote, “Wow! I heard the music in my head as soon as I saw the pic! Great Job!”

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
