Resident Services or Town Hall in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is nothing more than a tent at the start. Being the central hub of almost every activity in the game, you must upgrade the Resident Services as early as possible. Once again, the ever so reliable Tom Nook is the go-to guy to get the job done. In this Animal Crossing: New Horizons Town Hall Upgrade Guide, we’ll help you upgrade the most important building in the game.
How to Upgrade Town Hall in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
After starting Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ll need to engage yourself in things that Tom Nook tells you to. The game doesn’t restrict you and you’re free to explore things on your own but it’s better to heed Tom’s advice.
Some of these tasks include things like building Nook’s Cranny on the island. After a while, you’ll be asked to bring a few villagers to your island. 3 in total. This is the task that you need to divert all your attention to if you wish to upgrade your Town Hall.
An important thing to keep in mind is that these villagers need to have properly-built houses with everything where it needs to be.
To do so, you’ll first need to construct a bridge for the villagers to cross the river and then set up 3x housing plots where you see fit. After you’re done with the placement of the plots, you’ll need to set up interior and exterior things.
These things can easily be crafted via DIY Recipes. Crafting the DIY Recipes is something Resident Services can do even in its tent form. When you’re done, the villagers will start moving in – one villager per day.
Once you manage to get 3 villagers to your island, your Resident Services in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will automatically upgrade without you having to do anything else.
It’ll take a full one day for the Town Hall to be fully upgraded but once it’s done, you’ll be able to unlock a few important things that will help you in the long run. Some of the things an upgraded Town Hall allows you to do include:
- DIY Customization Workshop
- Building Bridges
- Moving Buildings except for Airport and Town Hall
- Daily Announcements from Isabelle
- New Items at the Nook Miles
- Changing Town’s Tune and Flag
- Town Evaluations
- Resetting Villagers
