One may ask, what can we edit in New Horizons?

During the last Animal Crossing Direct, Nintendo introduced some of the features we are going to be able to edit during the game.

These include but not limited too: 

  • Deleting Cliffs
  • Adding or removing water 
  • Adding slopes
  • Adding Veritable pathways (paths around your town)
  • Change all of your terrains - make your island the way you want it to look!
