Changes to egg drops have been made in Animal crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is in the middle of its Bunny Day event, which has players finding eggs to make event exclusive items. A new update has gone live during the event, changing the rate at which eggs appear. On the Nintendo Japan support page (translation via Polygon), it was stated that the appearance rate of some eggs had been adjusted. Unfortunately, the page was not clear on what the egg adjustments were. The site did mention, however, that eggs will appear more often than usual on Easter. Easter is on April 12th, and is the last day of the event. The update also fixed a glitch surrounding bug-collector Flick and the scarab beetle. 

Throughout the Bunny Day event, players will find Zipper the bunny on their islands. Zipper hid a number of eggs all around gamers' islands, which can be found by through various means, such as digging them up and fishing for them. Players will be able to craft special egg-themed items using the eggs. These items are only available during the event. 

Bunny Day is not the only event happening in New Horizons this month (via IGN). The Cherry Blossom event is going on right now. Until April 11th, players islands will be full of cherry blossom trees. Gamers will be able to collect the cherry blossom petals floating around their islands, and use them to create unique items. There will also be a fishing tournament on the morning of April 11th. Gamers will find a character named C.J. near their Resident Services building. Talking to him will trigger the tourney, prompting players to catch as many fish as they can in three minutes. Players who miss out on the tournament do not have to worry. C.J. will reappear on islands every second and third Saturday of some months. 

Players can also find new fish and bugs in April. This includes the Snapping Turtle and the Atlas Moth. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
