Treasure hunt

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
The player digging up a buried item during a treasure hunt in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Treasure hunts are activities in the Animal Crossing series initiated by villagers. During a treasure hunt, a villager will bury an item in a random location and the player must find it by digging it up. Treasure hunts appear in Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

A bulletin board message by Teddy in Animal Crossing saying he buried an item in Acre B-2

In Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+, villagers will occasionally post on the bulletin board that they have buried an item in a specific acre. The buried item has a 33% chance of being either an item from Crazy Redd's, an item from the lottery, or a Pitfall. The item will remain in town forever until it is dug up.

Treasure hunts occur at random, and there is a minimum gap of three days between hunts.

Item list[edit]

The following items can be obtained from the treasure hunt.

In New Horizons[edit]

Biff explaining the rules of a treasure hunt to the player in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, villagers may ask the player to partake in a treasure hunt, initiating a timed minigame where the player begins in the plaza and must find a buried present on the island. If the player digs up the present and returns it to the villager within the time limit, they will unwrap it and give the player the item inside.
