The latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons update has fixed the naked villager glitch that began affecting some islands a couple of weeks ago. 

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons naked villager glitch was an amusing and totally unexpected issue that seemed to only happen in the Happy Home Paradise DLC. According to several players online, and now the official patch notes, the issue appeared to only affect villagers in the cafe who were chosen to work in the facility and who were wearing custom designs. 

Thankfully, this frankly embarrassing glitch didn’t last long as Nintendo has just released a 2.04 update that fixes several small bugs including the one preventing your villagers from getting dressed in the morning. The full patch notes for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.04 update can be found on Nintendo’s official website, but here's the pertinent update in the patch notes.

  • Fixed an issue where facility members wearing clothing that uses Custom Designs appear to not be wearing any clothing.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
