In this short guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons we will deal with building the stairs to climb the elevated parts of your island

Have you already purchased your Desert Island Package? Did you own your own atoll in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Very well, because our life has been absorbed completely by it. It may be that in this historical period we had a visceral need for a light and light-hearted title, which does not require particular attention or which focuses on a spectacular plot. Animal Crossing is the exact example of a video game created to entertain and relax, that simply fills the soul. Like it or not like it is so. In this regard, we have decided to bring you a series of themed guides, to facilitate the start of your future beautiful desert island. 

And much more ...

Before starting this short guide on how to build ladders to climb higher and reach the elevated parts of your island, we remind you that here on Holygamerz you will already find several guides and a review for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Starting with our tips and tricks to get you started, passing on how to effectively hit rocks, to the bugs and fish that left us in March and finally an introductory guide on how to find eggs for the new Easter event. And there will still be many, many more. Stay with us. Meanwhile, let's get started! 

An unexplored island - Animal Crossing: New Horizons, how to build the stairs to climb to the top

Once you have started Animal Crossing: New Horizons and chosen your island layout, you will be immediately taken to your personal atoll by Tom Nook. A wonderful beach, many fruit trees and land to exploit, clear and crystalline water and immediately two neighbors to accompany you. However, you will soon realize that not all the ground you see is walkable, at least not right away. 

The main obstacles that you will face, in fact, will be the rivers and the hills. However, if you cross the rivers it will be almost immediate, considering that it will be given to you the jumping pole practically immediately, the elevated areas of your island, full of flowers, rocks and insects never seen before will always seem so far away. At least, until Tom Nook decides you're ready to venture up there too.

Indeed, the protagonist of your progression will always be our favorite loan shark. To climb the elevated areas of the island you will need a Ladder, one of the many equipment that the game will make available to you to explore and collect materials. To build the staircase you will obviously need the related DIY project. And that project is obviously in the hands of Tom Nook. 

To get it, all you have to do is increase the number of inhabitants of your island and continue with the "main missions" that Tom Nook will entrust to you. Once you have replaced all the tents with brick houses, which are gradually expanding, you will need to start welcoming new neighbors. There are many ways to do this, the simplest initially is to buy a Coupon with Nook Miles to fly to a random desert island and invite the resident to join you.

You can then later unlock the Camping Area, through which some travelers will visit you and you can take advantage to segregate them… To invite them to stay. In addition, a specific feature of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is to be able to summon new inhabitants from the series through the related Compatible Amiibo. A nice way to take advantage of the nice Nintendo figurines.

Once the island has been improved and a certain number of inhabitants brought to your atoll, our trusted loan shark will give us the gift of the Ladder project, which can be built with four units of Normal Wood, four of Hardwood and four of Softwood. And so on to the adventure towards those damned flowers that you see from the beginning and that seemed unreachable.

Have a good climb!
