Animal Crossing’s weirdest new items from the 2.0 update

Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 upgrade assured a deluge of brand-new products — and a couple of weeks into the release, it’s clear the upgrade has actually definitely provided. Gamers are hectic gathering charming brand-new gyroids, utilizing radiant moss and vines, and including partitions and hanging lighting to their interiors. There are likewise great deals of brand-new beneficial products for lovely island creating, from castle towers for fortress constructs to pergolas and gazebos for gardens.

However there are likewise a handful of a little more strange products that gamers have actually experienced, and began infiltrating builds. Here are a few of Polygon’s preferred off-the-beaten-path products that you may discover at Nook’s Cranny.

Rescue Mannequin

This one has actually been making a splash given that gamers initially found it. If you’ve ever trained to be a lifeguard, or just taken CPR classes, this kind of mannequin may be familiar to you. However it likewise looks a lot like a crash dummy, or just a stand-in for a body — and gamers have actually discovered lots of enjoyable methods to utilize it to recreate film scenes, and usually trigger mayhem and trouble.

Titan Arum (Corpse Flower)

This alien-looking plant is none other than the infamous Titan Arum, or amorphophallus titanum — colloquially known as the corpse flower, thanks to the pungent odor these real life plants emit on the rare occasions they bloom. If you’re thinking about buying this bad boy, you might want to know that the stench has been compared to that of “rotting meat,” according to The Huntington, a California botanical garden, library, and research center that has one of the rare flowers. (They named theirs “Stinky”.)

The corpse flower is one of the tallest flowers to exist — that phallic looking spadix can range from six to eight feet tall. It blooms rarely and only stays open for a day. But if you buy it from the Nook Brothers, you can enjoy its prodigious stink all year.

Cold Sleep Pod

Should you, or any of your villagers, foresee a need to go into the cold, hard stasis of cryogenic sleep, the Nook brothers are here to provide. This vaguely threatening looking pod is a dream come true for any science fiction fans — and space-themed builds have actually always been a core component of New Horizons, with existing items like a UFO or starry night items gifted from Celeste. But it’s still jarring to see it sold at Nook’s Cranny.

Creepy Skeleton

A pile of bones is a bleak sight, but at least this item already has “creepy” in the name. Are these bones… real? Are they props? If the skeleton is real, then it’s especially disconcerting to buy it off of the Nook brothers, who sell it casually on the shop counter next to home wares like typewriters and chairs.

That said, this one is a perfect item for anyone who is an enduring fan of Halloween, has a spooky island theme, or is making an archeology themed island.

Vine Hanging Chair

This one may look cute, and seem like a totally normal addition — but I have personally decided it is cursed. This vine hanging chair gives me major Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone vibes, with a tangle that looks fit to consume whomever has actually the misfortune to take a seat in it. Plus, it doesn’t even look comfortable? That said, even if I personally wouldn’t sit in this, it does look great alongside other new vine products.
