Animal Crossing: New Horizons Hides Four Incredible Features That Cannot Be Used

Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows players to create their own world, but there are some features that players cannot get access to, but that is still available in the game.

New Horizons has a lot of features that can be seen on the island, but cannot be used, as we do not know why. They might have been introduced in the game, and then removed, but who knows for sure? But there’s a possibility that they will be brought into the game with a future update.

So what are the 4 features that players cannot access?

You can trade bugs and fish

Players can drop on the ground — like any other item — bugs and fish, and they appear inside their containers. This means that other players can pick them up. This makes it easier for players to trade crittres and complete their critterpedia. Why can’t we get access to this feature? Nobody knows why.

There are some items that you cannot get your hands on

You might see villagers carrying coffee mugs or popsicles while they are roaming around the island. They look great, and you might think that you may want different items, as well. It shows how much work Nintendo puts into details. Unfortunately, this feature is not available, either.

You can get more reactions

As a player, you will be able to find villagers on their islands using reactions. But right now, they are not available. We hope the team behind the game will add them soon.

You can’t have a rug outside your home unless…

Players get really frustrated with this feature. New Horizons allows you to decorate your island as you want to, but you can get rugs outside your home only on modded islands. This feature will allow players to be even more creative with their island, since some rugs cannot be placed inside homes, since they are too big.

For now, we are waiting for the team to grant us access to all of these incredible features.
