Animal Crossing Update 1.1.3a Fixes Balloon Glitch
By Andrew Lin
Animal Crossing Update 1.1.3a is another bug fix, arriving just days after the last bug patch.
1.1.3 fixes a glitch about balloons. Since the Bunny Day event began, players' towns have been invaded with eggs in their airspace. The increase in aerial items brought attention to a bug.
Animal Crossing Update 1.1.3a
After completing the Nook Miles achievement of 300 balloons (easily done with increased balloon spawns), some players noted that balloons no longer appeared.
The patch fixes this one bug, making it so balloons are free to appear once again.
This update is minor, as the last updates fixed some truly game breaking bugs. 1.1.2 addressed several progress blocking bugs, and the update before that fixed the duplication glitch that let you make infinite bells.
Your Switch should automatically download the latest version while it's in sleep mode, but you can also manually update the game. Press minus in the home menu while the game is selected, and you can begin the update.
You'll need to be on the same version as any player you're trying to communicate with, so be sure to check the update history (there's a lot of them now) if you're having trouble visiting friends.
