Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ update 1.4.0 brought with it several new features, including a major online component from Animal Crossing: New Leaf on 3DS–Dream Suite! You can now dream in New Horizons, which means you can visit carbon copies of other players’ islands as well as upload one of your own for other people to visit. This way, you can explore other players’ islands while they’re offline–maybe to get some decorating inspiration, for example–and show off your own island without fear of people trampling your flowers or stealing items.
Below we detail everything you need to know about dreaming in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, including the requirements, what you’re allowed to do in a dream, how to visit a dream island, and how to upload your own island.
How To Dream In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Requires: internet connection with a Nintendo Online subscription, 1x bed
In order to dream in New Horizons, you’ll need an internet connection and an active Nintendo Online subscription. You’ll also need any kind of bed in-game; you should have received Luna’s bed in the mail after downloading the update, but anything you can lie down on will do. Once you lie down, you’ll be given a dialogue prompt; select “Yeah, I want to sleep” to initiate dreaming.
