Building Katrina’s Co-op
Long time players of Animal Crossing will remember Katrina from previous games. She’s returned and offers much of the same fortune-telling and luck boosting fortunes that she has in the past.
To build Katrina’s Shop, you’ll need to head over to the Lloid in the bottom left of the field and donate 100,000 Bells to him. Then, you’ll need to wait until the next day before you can visit the shop.
Why build Katrina’s Shop?
Katrina can give you one of two predictions for 1,000 bells: a luck prediction or a reading about your friendship with a specific villager.
If you pay for a luck prediction and she predicts that you’ll have bad luck, you can pay her some bells to “cleanse” your spirit. If you don’t pay her the 10,000 Bells, however, you’ll find yourself tripping over all day and you might also find that your tools break quicker. If your luck is good then you’ll sometimes find rarer bugs and insects or you’ll have a slight chance of receiving more bells when hitting rocks!
When you ask about your friendship, she’ll give you a vague analogy that suggests your closeness with a villager. Players might find this service useful if you’re trying to get a photograph from a villager and you’re looking to find out if you’re close or not. Then, she also offers to bless your friendship for 10,000 Bells, which gives you an extra boost for a few days when talking to your chosen villager. You’ll get extra “points” for talking and gifting the villager who’s been blessed - helping you increase the friendship to best friend status!
