To start the Bunny Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (buy now) many players were bothered by the high drop rate of the eggs. For example, anyone who stood on the river to fish for a fish was more likely to have had an egg on the hook in the past few days. The same was true for wood procurement on trees – in addition to wood, an egg often flew to the ground. Given the tool wear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the high drop rate of the eggs was quite annoying – and prevented the actual gameplay. With the latest update, Nintendo finally responded and lowered the egg release rate. Players welcome the changes, such as Twitter and Reddit.
On the actual Bunny Day on April 12, the egg drop rate is to be increased again. There's also an Earth Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons scheduled for late April. That brings Sloth Gerd into play. Players know the sociable guy from the nurseries in the predecessors. So Earth Day is likely to be about flowers and other plants. Details about the gameplay are expected for the coming days. Earth Day takes place on April 22nd.
