The Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.3.1 patch notes were dropped on July 9, 2020 on the Nintendo Support website. Mostly, this patch covers a number of fixes to the game. One of them ensures that the wet suit will appear appropriately in Nook’s Cranny for your Summer Update fun. Another major one though is a fix to Zen Bridge placement on third tier elevation on a cliff. Previously, Zen Bridges placed at cliffs on this elevation were ending up unusable. 1.3.1 ensures this is no longer the case and your regular and Red Zen Bridges should work appropriately in this situation now. Check out the full list of notes below.

Fixed the following issues:

  • Addressed issue where players could not properly use a zen bridge or red zen bridge placed on top of a cliff (third tier).
  • Addressed issue where a wet suit would not be available for sale within Nook’s Cranny.
  • Addressed issue where hermit crabs would appear in places other than the beach.
  • Addressed issue where a dialogue bubble would improperly appear after speaking with island residents.
