It might seem odd to see Animal Crossing: New Horizon update 1.1.3 so soon. After all, we literally just put up 1.1.2 patch notes yesterday. However, it turns out Animal Crossing: New Horizons had run into a heck of a problem and it one that had a big effect on the current Bunny Day event. If you’ve been having issues with balloons not showing up on your island anymore, Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.1.3 patch notes are here to help.

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.1.3 patch notes are short, but sweet. Nintendo dropped update 1.1.3 and its notes on April 3, 2020, just a day after update 1.1.2 came out. That said, 1.1.3 addresses a very specific problem that is quite important for a lot of people: Balloons. Players were finding that after popping so many balloons on their island (around 300 apparently), balloons were no longer showing up.

The balloon bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been especially noticeable considering a part of the current Bunny Day event relies on balloon presents.

This is a pretty big matter during the ongoing Bunny Day event where balloons (and their attached presents) figure into getting your hands on specific event-related eggs and the prizes that come with them. Nintendo took notice, and update 1.1.3 is all about this balloon bug.

General

  • Fixed a bug where balloons would not fly under certain conditions.

That’s it. That’s all there is to this particular patch. That said, if you’re playing co-op with friends who have updated, make sure you’re updated too. New updates in Animal Crossing: New Horizons don’t communicate with old updates, meaning Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.1.2 won’t be able to play together with the new update 1.1.3, as close as the updates are.
