Nintendo has released another, smaller patch to Animal Crossing: New Horizons following the seasonal changes included in its previous version update.

With any major update, there are sure to be a few glitches and bugs that either appear due to a larger sample size of players or simply were overlooked during programming. Thankfully, Nintendo seems to be on top of this development aspect, as they've swiftly released a second hotfix patch only 12 days after the initial upgrade.

Version 1.11.1 officially dropped Tuesday, Aug. 10. Players will know their game has been successfully updated if it bears that number sequence on the upper right corner of the screen.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Version 1.11.1 Patch Notes

This patch primarily focused on bug fixes after the last major seasonal update, Version 1.11.0. Of course, data miners quickly uncovered that late-summer seasonal holidays weren't the only items added in that patch. They also uncovered some interesting parameters for a "museum cafe"—sparking rumors that Brewster, the coffee barista pigeon, would be making his highly-anticipated return.

Unfortunately, the notes for 1.11.1 have yet to be confirmed in the West. We do have the Japanese translation, however, which we've slightly annotated for clarity:

  • Fixed a bug that the order was not correct when rearranging in "Obtained order" in the "DIY recipe" app.
  • Fixed a bug where the color variations of certain items were not displayed in the catalog at [Photopia, Harvey's photography studio island].
  • Fixed a bug that the closing [background music inside Nook's Cranny] did not flow.
  • Fixed a bug where clouds did not appear in some seasons.

Nintendo went on to remind players that Ver. 1.11.1 is not compatible with 1.11.0, so anyone they hope to play with must be running the same version. Additionally, their Switch console will need to have sufficient space to download the new data.
