Animal Crossing New Horizons bridges and inclines are structures that you can build in the game, which make traversing the island much easier. Of course, you can’t just build inclines and bridges in ACNH from the start; you have to earn it. And even then, these structures are really, really expensive. So, in our Build Bridges & Inclines in Animal Crossing New Horizons guide, we’re gonna show you how to build this stuff, and how much it’s gonna cost you.
Animal Crossing New Horizons – How to Build Inclines & Bridges?
To build bridges and inclines in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you have to progress through the game until you upgrade Residence Services into a building. After that, you can talk with Nook about infrastructure. Then, select Bridges or Inclines, and select whether you want to demolish or build them. Select what you want to build, then the location where you want to put it. Just keep in mind that all these structures are very expensive, and you’ll have to foot the bill on your own. Same goes for demolishing. More on that in a bit.
The first bridge you will probably build will be as a part of inviting new villagers to your town. We cover that in detail in our Recruit Villagers From Nook Mile Islands guide, but here are the basics. After you invite three people from the Nook Mile Islands to come live in your town, Nook will call and give you the recipe for the Bridge Building Kit. You then have to gather resources and build the bridge from there.
