Our lovely senior video producer Alex Olney has had Animal Crossing: New Horizons a little bit longer than the rest of us, and in this time frame has discovered a few extra little secrets about the game. We're not really talking about spoilers here, more like tips and tricks.

Did you know, for example, that you can hit balloons out of the sky with a net? Or stop wasps from attacking you with a party popper? What if you need to relocate an entire forest? Just eat a turnip! Your villagers can even play musical instruments and sing. To find out more things like this, check out the 12-minute video above.

Did you already know about these secrets? Have any others to share? Let us know in the comments.
