Animal Crossing New Horizons has been available on Nintendo Switch for almost a week and fans have been doing everything from turning the experience into a horror game to infesting islands with a trillion tarantulas. Unfortunately, since the game's launch, Tom Nook has caught onto the cheeky methods people have been using to obtain an ocean worth of bells, and he has snitched on the community to Nintendo resulting in the duplication glitch having been patched.
There's a lot of ways to earn bells in Animal Crossing New Horizons, but the duplication glitch was a popular exploit shared across the web. Essentially, it allowed players to duplicate items that they could endlessly sell, but that can no longer happen.
And, although there are some stubborn islanders saying they just won't update the game, you have to if you want to continue using all of its features.
