The new 1.5.1 version patch notes just released for Animal Crossing New Horizons and breakdown 3 bug fixes and some minor adjustments, including a pretty serious river-jumping bug, bamboo pumpkins bug and more. Now let’s take a look at these bug fixes from Animal Crossing New Horizons patch update!


Animal Crossing New Horizons Version 1.5.1 Update

As the first update since the huge Fall update launched last week which introduced farming, harvesting and the Halloween Holiday also added some glitches to the game. Now this version 1.5.1 update appears to be nothing more than an issue with the in-game passports, along with this a 3 other fixes resolving various other minor glitches. Here are the full patch update details for New Horizons 1.5.1. 

1. River Jumping

  • Fixed an issue where it was no longer possible to jump over a river based on the location of certain furniture. 

One of the significant glitches to be fixed was a river jumping bug. If a river is less than two tiles wide we can freely hop over it without the aid of the vaulting pole. It seems that since the Fall update, if certain furniture items were placed nearby it would stop the player hopping over the river and almost blocking access to some heavily terraformed areas of people's islands especially those who use a lot of stepping stones and tiny rivers. Thankfully the latest ACNH patch fixes this issue and there's no longer any issues jumping rivers.

2. Bamboo Pumpkins

  • Fixed an issue where animal residents would talk about pumpkins when given a bamboo shoot.

Now giving items fruit and even candy right now to villages is probably something you do regularly to build up your friendship level. It appears a dialogue bug was introduced along with the farming update that got the villagers confused about the differences between pumpkins and bamboo shoes. Since the Fall update, if you gave a villager a bamboo shoot as a little treat they would talk about how much they love the pumpkins you gave them amongst other things, this has now been fixed in version 1.5.1 and now should you decide to give away any of those rare bamboo shoes to villagers, they will actually acknowledge it.

3. Passport Titles

  • Fixed an issue where some title keywords obtained via Nook Miles would not appear within the passport.

Thanks to the wonderful new Nook Miles mechanic in ACNH, we're able to work towards a variety of different goals and unlock accolades. Along the way the titles that we earned from reaching these goals can be used to customize our passports by combining two words or phrases. But titles you’ve already earned would sometimes be unable to display in your Passport and people always confused about that, this has now been fixed in new version 1.5.1 in ACNH update, everything is back to normal now.


  • Fixed an issue where certain messages would display in English for users playing in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, or Russian.

There are also some small language adjustments for certain users playing in other languages who would see English text in some dialogue, but luckily this has also been fixed.
