Why do you get dreams

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Find Sereneda, Dream & More Explained

With the second summer update, Serenada has found its way into "Animal Crossing: New Horizons". The female tapir enables you to visit other players' islands in your dreams. You can also share your own island as a dream. Here is the most important information about it.

The new dream feature in "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" has an immense advantage: The player whose island you are visiting does not have to be online to be able to explore his island. All you need is his snooze address. The game creates these automatically as soon as a player shares their own dream (more on this below). But first we explain to you where you can find Serenada in the first place so that you can start dreaming.

Explore another island in a dream

In the previous game ("Animal Crossing: New Leaf") Serenada still had her own slumber house that you could use to dream. That is no longer the case in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Instead, with the Summer Update Vol. 2, you get a bed from Serenada for free. You put this in your house, lie in and close your eyes.

The game will now automatically ask you if you want to dream. In the dialog click on "Sleeping sounds good!". Then Serenada appears. Click on "I want to dream!" After she explains how the dream feature works. You can then explore another player's island in a dream. For this you need his or her snooze address - a type of identifier that is similar to the dodo code. You can find snooze addresses of other islands on Twitter, for example, where many "ACNH" players share them publicly:

Come dream about my island, Elysium!

A few important hints at the end: To be able to explore foreign islands, you need a connection to the Internet and a membership with Nintendo Switch Online. In addition, your inventory is automatically empty while you are dreaming. Everything that was in your bag before, ends up in it again automatically as soon as you end the dream. In addition, you can pick up objects from other islands in your dream, but you cannot take them with you into the real world later. They disappear from the inventory as soon as you wake up again.

How to Share a Dream in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Do you want to enable other players to explore your island in a dream? This is how it works: When you are in dialogue with Serenada, click on β€œShare your dream!”. Then the female tapir uploads the current version of your island as a dream. A snooze address is also created for the dream. Make a note of the address and share it with your friends and / or on social networks. Otherwise, you can always find your snooze address in your passport.

Note: If you change something on your island later, Serenada has to upload it again to Nintendo's cloud so that the changes can also be seen by other players. You can update your dream once a day.

With the latest summer update for #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons, Serenada is visiting your island! With the help of snooze addresses, it will take you to islands of players all over the world in your dreams. Just fall asleep and the journey can begin! πŸ’€πŸ’­ pic.twitter.com/Cbnhpc9T74
