Animal Crossing: New Horizons nerfs bug spawns for the economy

A reliable dataminer has discovered the concerning news.

Nintendo has recently ramped up their efforts to fine-tune the inflated economy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. While the latest patch adds a ton of great content, it also informs you that the Bank of Nook has decreased interest rates for player’s savings accounts. It looks like that’s not all the new patch does to address the bell inflation rate.

If you’re a fan of making money off of catching bugs, brace yourself. According to the data miner @_Ninji, who correctly reported on all of the Earth Day content, Nintendo has made huge changes to the spawn rate of bugs. Ninji found that Nintendo has unified the spawn rates for the game’s insects, which in layman’s terms means that instead of having specific months where one type of bug was coded to spawn more often, now all bugs have set spawn rates during the months they are to appear.

It gets worse. Peacock butterflies, emperor butterflies, and atlas moths — all the bugs that sell for lots of bells — have had their spawn rates reduced significantly. Scorpions and tarantulas, everyone’s favorite monsters to hunt and sell, also got whacked with the nerf bat. Thankfully you can still got wild hunting our eight legged friends on tarantula island if you keep up with collecting your Nook Miles.

Ninji has made a full table of the various adjustments to bugs available here.

Will this cause islanders to go hungry? Home prices on islands to crash? Only time will tell.
