Item crafting is one of the features first shown off for New Horizons, but it’s easy to forget it exists because, well… we’ve heard absolutely nothing about New Horizons gameplay since September.
Anyhow, it seems reasonable to think this feature’s getting borrowed from Pocket Camp, the “gather X to get Y” setup and all that. And that’s perfectly fine by me. Not only will it hopefully provide an even greater sense of progression, but it’s an excuse to forage, explore, and shake those trees even more.
Not that we needed an excuse, but still.
