Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a video game developed and published by Nintendo. New Horizons is the latest addition to the life simulation video games by the Animal Crossing series. It is the main series title, released on the Nintendo Switch on March 20, 2020. The game is set for simulation in real-time, and it functions just as similar to the previous titles of the Animal Crossing series. New Horizons starts off as the player takes on the role of a customizable character who moves to a deserted island. The game then takes the story further with the engagement of an animal community, known as Villagers, on the island you nurture and develop. You can read further about the Villagers list on New Horizons and how to add/remove Villagers on your island.
The element Wheelchair in Animal Crossing New Horizons has been crossing the players’ minds for far too long now. What it actually is that it’s a piece of furniture that you can place indoors or outdoors on your islands. There’s literally a lot of furniture that you can craft and customize in the New Horizons – the wheelchair being one of them. You can learn more about customizing furniture here. No, no one can sit on it and move the wheelchair as you might be assuming now. However, the wheelchair is still a mystery to many players out there, and this article hopefully serves that core purpose. Without diverting much, let’s look at how to find the wheelchair in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

How to Get the Wheelchair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Get it as a floating present
This method entirely relies upon your luck. To get the presents on the ground from the balloon, you’ll need to shoot them down with a slingshot. When you find a balloon floating up in the sky, position yourself so you can see the balloon. You’ll need to line yourself up with it, and with the slingshot equipped, press and hold A. Release A to fire the slingshot and pop the balloon. If you are one lucky lad, you’ll need to lucking pop the wheelchair out of the balloon.
Buy it from the Nook Crack
The next option is to buy a wheelchair from the Nook Crack. You must have at least 2,700 hoods to purchase one. This will be, however, the standard method to get hold of a wheelchair in New Horizons. Since the rest two methods are pretty risky, most players prefer to just purchase one.
By means of trading with another player
The third and last method is to turn to a friend, capable of actually buying it. However, if you do not have such friends, you have the possibility of sending some requests with the AC: NL hashtag on Twitter, searching for posts where other players share friend codes in the Animal Crossing subreddit on Reddit or look for Facebook groups and Discord servers where item trading is available.
Summing up the guide, we know that the wheelchair is nothing more than a piece of furniture. You may hope that you’ll be able to move around in it, but everything is the exact opposite. Just like the other furniture, the wheelchair can too be placed around on your island and can be customized. The hardest method might be to shoot it down from the floating presents since it works randomly and solely on your luck.
