Anyone who has played Animal Crossing knows about weeds. An ever-growing nuisance, weeds act as a mechanic to promote getting people to return. The longer you are away, the more weeds sprout across your town. While it is normally up to the player to handpluck each and every weed, the upcoming Autumn update to 2012’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf will remove all the plants from your town.
News comes by way of the Animal Crossing UK official twitter, seen below. This should make sense — even the most dedicated Animal Crossing fans have likely moved on from the the four year-old game, meaning weeds would be all over town.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf‘s update on Nintendo 3DS doesn’t have any set release date, however it plans to bring new amiibo support, Animal Crossing amiibo cards, and new content. Check out the tweet regarding weeds below:
