Sandbox Island can repair the multiplayer game of Animal Crossing: New Horizons


Because Nintendo does not want visitors to be able to manipulate and decorate the island or town they are visiting. Therefore, the multiplayer games in the Animal Crossing series have always had capacity limitations. To a certain extent, this is a good thing for player creation, because if multiplayer games do not have some form of ACNH Items moderation, then the possibility of player creation being abused is too great. In fact, the Animal Crossing series features multiplayer and cooperation in some form in many installments, but its restraint on capacity has limited the appeal of multiplayer games in the latest game Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

By using the new sandbox island to allow players to meet and work together, Animal Crossing can be expanded into a more collaborative multiplayer format. For a long time, Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues the tradition of the series, that is, restricting the interaction of visiting players on each island. Although visitors can shake trees, pick up fallen objects and use some of their tools, it is impossible to interact with decorations. With so many items, themes, recipes and tools, New Horizons enables players to create the perfect island in the game. However, players must first make them before they can use their precious time, space, and resources to access these items.

Given the popularity of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it can benefit a lot from the sandbox mode, which will save its single player and multiplayer features. Sandbox mode has been used in various production games in the past, and has achieved great success in leveraging player creativity and increasing interest in games. From games like Minecraft to Garry's Mod, the sandbox mode has proven to extend the success of the game. By enabling Sandbox Island, players can have the opportunity to collaborate on different designs and decorations, and obtaining unlimited resources will only increase the time players spend together. The sandbox mode in Animal Crossing also allows players to explore different looks and themes on the Animal Crossing Items island without having to invest time, effort and resources in their own saved files. Having a place to preview different designs and collaborate with others to make new and exciting Animal Crossing builds will increase the usefulness of multiplayer games exponentially.

Currently, the only attraction of participating in ACNH multiplayer games is to catch bugs or fish, interact with traveling NPCs, use carrot prices, visit meteors, or see new designs implemented by players on their islands. Seeing that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been launched for a while, many players have found the island appearance they want, but the lack of content makes many players want to leave the game. Adding different functions to ACNH may help to change this situation, so it may be a good choice to extend the Animal Crossing multiplayer game function to a neutral sandbox island. Players can decorate together on a blank island, which will not only increase the number of players using the multiplayer function, but also add new charm to the game.
