Apparently, in previous titles of Animal Crossing, there were factors such as luck and feng shui which either increased the chances of positive things happening or negative things happening.

In Animal Crossing New Horizons, is there any gameplay element of luck or feng shui present? So far I've acquired the ladder, successfully built 3 Villager homes and their decorations, a bridge, and have had Nook's Cranny built. Throughout all that, I don't recall Tom or any other NPC bringing that topic up. The wiki says that luck is a hidden mechanic, but doesn't specify if it is also present in New Horizons.


No, luck and feng shui are not mentioned as part of the base story or game mechanics. While there are plenty of guesses, there are no confirmed instances of its implementation in New Horizons.

    Were there hints to that effect in previous games? Not being mentioned in the base story or game mechanics means nothing -- no one talks about hybridizing flowers if they're adjacent, but that's in the game. – Raven Dreamer Apr 2 at 23:43
