Tom Nook

Before you download the latest update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you might be interested to know Tom Nook's bank has decided to lower the interest rate for all savings accounts within the game. It means you'll no longer earn as many extra Bells as you previously did. Here's the letter in full (thanks, GameXplain):

To make up for this, the 'Bank of Nook' has attached a few presents. One is a world map and the other is a Bell Bag rug. It's hard to say exactly why Nintendo decided to make this change. While no reason has been provided, some theories suggest it could be to prevent time travellers from earning the big Bells.
