If you’ve been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you may well have found yourself gazing up at the night sky and seeing the occasional shooting star. Wishing upon these stars can reward you with Star Fragments – a material used to craft several sought-after recipes – but getting your hands on them isn’t always as simple as you might think.
You see, wishing upon each star doesn’t necessarily earn you a Star Fragment each time; we haven’t discovered any exact science behind the numbers, but you only seem to receive a proportion of stars for the number of wishes you make. For example, if you make 50 wishes, you may end up receiving just 15-or-so Star Fragments for your trouble.
A Twitter user detailed their recent haul to ex-Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aimé, explaining that after making 137 wishes, they received 12 Star Fragments, 2 Large Star Fragments, and 1 Aries Fragment (which are particularly rare). Reggie replied after experiencing his own meteor shower in-game, saying that he believes players should be rewarded with more Fragments than is currently the case.
It’s interesting enough to hear Reggie’s opinion on the matter – especially when that opinion isn’t full of blind praise for Nintendo’s work – but we thought we’d hand it over to you. Do you think you should receive more Star Fragments in-game, or do you like the fact that they’re intentionally hard to get?
Feel free to expand upon your answer in the comments below. Reggie also recently had his say on the controversial act of time-travelling, saying he’d “never” do it himself.
