Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 1.1.2 fixes the empty plots of land bug

Nintendo have released update 1.1.2 for Animal Crossing: New Horizons today, fixing a handful of troublesome bugs that had emerged over the last few weeks of play.

The game’s magical spell has been been spoilt by one bug in particular, whereby inviting an animal from another player’s island to join yours – this can only happen if they’ve been asked to leave – wouldn’t actually see them move in, and would instead leave you with a plot of land eternally sold but unoccupied.

Alongside other house moving issues – like being unable to move a house after a resident has been deleted – updating to version 1.1.2 should fix them. Unfortunately, there are side effects. For the above issue, the animal that you invited will simply leave, neither moving back or moving to your island. At least you’ll get that plot of land back and another animal can move in once more.

To check you’re up to date, you will see “Ver. 1.1.2” or “Ver. 1.1.2a” in the upper-right corner of the title screen. Version 1.1.2a signifies that you’ve connected to the servers and enabled the Bunny Day event.

Here’s the patch notes:

  • General updates
    • Fixed an issue where an animal you’ve invited to move from another island doesn’t actually move, leaving the plot of land allocated for them to move to sold and unoccupied.
      • After the software is updated to Ver. 1.1.2, the sold plot of land will revert to being available, and a new animal will become able to move there again. Unfortunately, the animal that was originally invited to move to your island when the issue occurred will not return to their original island, nor will their plan to move to your island be carried out.
    • Fixed an issue where a request from Tom Nook for the Resident Representative to find a plot of land for new residents disappears.
      • After the software is updated to Ver. 1.1.2, if the island is developed to a certain point (Nook’s Cranny is either under construction or completed), the next time the Resident Representative plays the game, a special event will trigger during the island-wide broadcast and the story will move forward.
    • Fixed an issue where, after deleting a resident, it becomes impossible to move their house and/or other structures.
      • After the software is updated to Ver. 1.1.2, it will once more become possible to request that these structures be moved.
    • Fixed an issue where both Nook Miles and Bells are subtracted when you use Nook Miles Tickets to go on a Mystery Tour and purchase an item from Wilbur.
    • Other issues are now resolved.
