Animal Crossing: New Horizons: How to Get and Use Gyroid Fragments

Like fossils, players can find gyroids by looking for the star-shaped markings on the ground. When a player digs into the marking with their shovel, they can find one of several unique gyroids. Similar to past games, gyroids will appear more frequently in the ground the day after it rains or snows in-game.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Dig Up Gyroid

In New Horizons, though, players can also unearth new gyroid fragments. By re-burying and watering them, these fragments will grow into a complete gyroid overnight.

The best new part is, players can customize gyroids to perfectly fit their island and home aesthetics. Based on the October Nintendo Direct, each gyroid will have four additional colors on top of its default designs. Like any other customization, players will have to spend customization kits for the color change. Luckily, it only costs one kit, so players can change up their gyroids with ease.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Gyroids Customization

While past games have had a limit to the number of active gyroids playing in one room, it’s unconfirmed as of yet whether there’ll be a limit in New Horizons. It seems players will be able to have at least seven active in one room, three more than in New Leaf.

Gyroids can be placed in player homes just like any other furniture item in-game. Experimenting with placing different types of gyroids in a room will create strangely, but fun-sounding songs as an additional soundscape to player rooms. If there’s a song playing from a music-playing item, the gyroids will even sync up and sound off along to K.K. Slider!
