Seems like this wiki already know that the maze is different this year but they haven’t update the new guide yet.

Shadow 20

But I realized that I can’t bring the plants and tools back.

Shadow 19

Mine is also different but I managed to get everything collectible on the island including the bonuses and complete the maze. (Took me three tries though.)
