Whether you’re a fan of the Animal Crossing series or a newcomer to the franchise, Animal Crossing New Horizons gives players an unprecedented level of freedom to create and customize their own island paradise. One feature that has recently added to this freedom is the ability to build bridges at an angle. Having these diagonal rivers and cliffs open up all sorts of possibilities for unique bridge designs and complex landscaping. Here we’ll look at how to build angled bridges in ‘Animal Crossing New Horizons’ and discuss why this feature is so important.
Building Angled Bridges
The process for building angled bridges in ‘Animal Crossing New Horizons’ is relatively simple. The first step is to put down a ladder on the side of the cliff face or river bank where you want your bridge to start, then select the bridge pattern from your design catalogue in the Custom Designs app. After selecting a design, simply place the bridge where you want it by pressing A, then adjust its angle by pressing X. That’s all there is to it!
Once your bridge has been placed, you can also use terraforming tools like cliffs and rivers to make further adjustments, such as widening or narrowing your river banks for easier access. You can even use these tools to shape your bridge itself, although be warned that these changes will affect any items or NPCs that are standing on top of them.

Having this option greatly enhances players’ ability to shape their islands however they choose. With diagonal bridges being so easy to create in just a few simple steps, players are free to get creative with their designs and come up with some truly unique ways of crossing rivers and gaps on their islands.
These angled bridges also help bring about an interesting balance between
