On Friday, Nintendo rolled out Version 1.3.0 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It added swimming, diving, wet suits, and also fixed various bugs. Unfortunately, it’s also added a new glitch. A number of players are no longer able to cross over the zen bridges on their island.
This broken bridge glitch seems to only be affecting some players at the moment – although there are a lot of videos on social media that demonstrate what exactly is happening. The player walks to the middle of the bridge and is seemingly blocked by an invisible wall. Take a look below:
Fortunately, there are a few ways around this – but they’re not exactly convenient. If you swap to the game’s camera mode you should then be able to pass through the invisible barrier. Otherwise, you can visit Tom Nook in Resident Services and get the bridge demolished.
Animal Crossing players have reported the same issues over on the official Nintendo support forums. A lot of users also note how their zen bridge is located on the third level of their island – so it could be something to do with the game’s boundaries.
I have a diagonal facing bridge on my 3rd level cliff and after the July 2nd update for the diving set, I cannot cross it anymore? I tried crossing from the other side but it stops my character from crossing the bridge. What do I do?
With any luck, Nintendo is already working on a patch for this. Have you encountered this glitch yourself? Tell us down below.
