Animal Crossing: New Horizons gyroids appear to be absent from the game. If they truly were, it would be the first time in Animal Crossing history that they be so. So are gyroids in the game?
Animal Crossing New Horizons Gyroids: Are They In the Game?
Gyroids are kind of odd furniture item players first discovered all the way back in Animal Crossing for the Nintendo GameCube. They could be dug up from specially marked plots of land in much the same way as fossils, and came in a dizzying array of variations.
When a player placed a gyroid in their home, the gyroid would perform a unique variation and generate a unique sound.
Some gyroids also performed roles in-game. For example, the original Animal Crossing used a gyroid as the game's in-game menu access point. Players spoke to the gyroid outside their homes to save and quit the game.
To date, no gyroids have been reported spotted in New Horizons. This has led many to conclude the unique items are not in the game at all, ending a decade-long run of appearances.
