Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler
It always baffled me that Tom Nook gets all the hate, despite the fact he gives you a house and is just like “pay me back whenever.” He is one of the few financial organizations left in our reality that has zero interest loans — especially with Redd around.
For those not in the know, Redd is the closest Animal Crossing gets to an antagonist. He used to show up from time to time, set up a tent and sell art which you could then donate to a museum. The problem is, you could only buy one of the four pieces of art and only one wasn’t a fake knockoff. He basically shows up, takes advantage of the town’s kindness by setting up shop and then ducks out before you can find out it’s fake.
His most recent appearance steps it up a notch. He doesn’t even step foot on the island. In fact, he uses the northern beach of the island that people have wondered about since the game launched. Personally, I’m a little annoyed by this because I couldn’t have possible set up my island worse for this. I can’t even describe how difficult I made it to get to the northern beach on my island.
Anyways, in addition to the art, you’re going to see interesting furniture that comes in abnormal colors or themes to really drive home the fact he’s selling bootleg stuff. But the big selling point is the fact you can buy art again because…
The Museum is receiving an expansion
When players started unlocking the museum in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, one thing surprised the majority of returning players; the art section was gone. Traditionally, the museums always had four areas: Fossil, Bugs, Fish and Art. In Horizons, the art section was gone.
The update fixes that. In what looks like an absolutely beautiful second story addition to the museum filled with statues, paintings and more. After you acquire and donate them of course.
They still haven’t given me my planetarium/observatory yet but I genuinely think I was the only Animal Crossing player obsessed with it. But here’s hoping they add that too. We’ll have to see how the art museum is laid out.
