If you’ve booted up Animal Crossing: New Horizons recently, you may have noticed that there is a new form of currency in the game, Heart Crystals. As you might have figured out, these are tied to the wedding event that is taking place during the month of June. So, what exactly are Heart Crystals and what do you do with them?
How to Get Heart Crystals in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
To get Heart Crystals in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ll need to participate in the wedding event. Specifically, you’ll need to take wedding photos that meet Reese’s requirements. Once you’ve done that, you can show her your top picture and she will reward you with up to 11 Heart Crystals.
As we mentioned above, this event will be lasting for the whole month of June, and players can come back each day to earn up to 11 Heart Crystals for a total of 77 Crystals a month. In theory, if you participate in the event every day of the month you can earn up to 330 Heart Crystals!
If you want to get the maximum amount of Heart Crystals each day, you’ll need to follow Reese’s daily preference. For example, one day she may ask for a pink and white themed picture and the next day she may ask for a green, yellow, and brown themed venue. As long as you fill-up the room with the proper colors, you should earn all 11 Heart Crystals. Further, be sure to take note of all the details that Reese asks for because sometimes she can be a bit tricky!
How to Spend Heart Crystals in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Once you’ve collected some Heart Crystals from Reese, you’ll want to speak with Cryus about redeeming your new form of currency. Upon speaking to the friendly alpaca, he will show you some wedding-themed items that you can purchase with your Heart Crystals. There are a total of 26 items that will appear throughout the month. It’s worth noting that all of the available items won’t appear on day one, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, you’ll want to keep checking back. Further, players can only purchase eight items at a time.
If you decide to purchase an item with your Heart Crystals, it will be delivered to your island in 24 hours. Once it has arrived, you can place it anywhere you’d like to bring a little bit of love to your home. Below we’ve detailed all of the items that can be purchased with Heart Crystals along with their price.
As you can see, if you want to collect all of the wedding-themed items, you better get busy!
If you need a break from wedding planning, there are plenty of new bugs and fish in New Horizons for the month of June. We’ve included some of our top guides below to help you catch them!
