Animal Crossing’s new turnip price tracker doesn’t tell you the most important thing
Nintendo quietly added a turnip price tracker for Animal Crossing: New Horizons to the Nintendo Switch Online app, but it’s not as useful as I hoped. Unfortunately, the tracker does not display the current turnip price on your island. Instead, it lists historical prices for the past week.
To view the tracker, which is aptly dubbed the Turnip Tracker, you must be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. If so, open the Nintendo Switch Online app, tap the Animal Crossing: New Horizons , tap the “Island Journal” in the list of NookLink apps and scroll down.
Below is an image of what the tracker looks like on my iPhone 12 Mini, taken as I was writing this article. You can see that the current price and the morning price are missing.
I had really hoped that the Turnip Tracker would allow me to check my island’s turnip price without having to boot up my Switch, but I’m guessing I’m going to have to do that anyway for an up-to-the-minute picture near the Rod Market. Fortunately, there are a lot of good reasons to play New Horizons right now, thanks to the busy new update, so stopping every once in a while at Nook’s Cranny shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
