Animal Crossing update 1.2.1 went live Thursday. Here are all of the confirmed changes in the new Animal Crossing update.

Animal Crossing Update 1.2.1: Biggest Takeaways

Bamboo Bug

Many islands were experiencing a problem where bamboo plants would not grow bamboo sprouts continuously. The problem was that each bamboo plant only produced a single sprout when it grew and never again. Some say that the bug was more common in digital copies, but that has not been confirmed. Luckily now all players have equal access to bamboo sprouts and don't have to rely on Daisy Mae.

Duplication Glitch

The remaining duplication glitch. specifically the one involving mailboxes, is no longer available. Players will now have to make money quick using the stalk market and buy additional copies of items themselves.

What's Next?

This is not the first glitch to be squashed. Some players suspect that the glitched trees like the star fragment trees that can only be acquired through hacking will be the next one to go. Nintendo generally eliminates exploitations whenever possible.
