On Friday, Nintendo released version 1.3.0 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Added swimming, diving, wetsuits and also fixed several bugs. Unfortunately, a new technical issue was also added. Multiple players can no longer cross the Zen bridges on their island.
This broken bridge glitch seems to be affecting only a few players right now, though there are plenty of videos on social media showing exactly what is happening. The player walks to the middle of the bridge and is apparently blocked by an invisible wall. Take a look below:
Fortunately, there are a few ways to deal with this, but they are not exactly convenient. If you switch to the game’s camera mode, you should be able to break through the invisible barrier. Otherwise, you can visit Tom Nook in Resident Services and demolish the bridge.
Players of Animal Crossing have reported the same issues on the official Nintendo support forums. Many users also notice how their zen bridge is located on the third level of their island, so it could have something to do with the limits of the game.
