Nintendo revealed that Animal Crossing: New HorizonsThe fall update comes out next week on September 30th.
Available for free, the update will add a spooky twist to the season with Halloween costumes, character customization options, DIY projects, and celebrations. We have a full overview for you below:
- Growing pumpkins – Decorate your home and island for all your fantastic fall occasions by first buying pumpkin starts in the game from Leif all year round or from Nook’s Cranny in October. Once your pumpkins have grown, they can be harvested and used in pumpkin-based DIY projects.
- Prepare for Halloween ̵
- Halloween night celebrations – When Halloween night arrives after 5pm on October 31st, the neighbors will gather in the square, which will be decked out with a range of Halloween decorations. You will also get a visit from a mysterious guest, Jack, the “Tsar of Halloween”. If you give Jack lollipops and candy, you will receive scary rewards in the game. Save candy for your neighbors too, otherwise you could be playing a prank! Fortunately, you can learn some new reactions to properly express your feelings of fear.
- Picking up on dreams again – The opportunity to take a nap and visit other islands in a dream was introduced this summer. Now you can easily revisit Dreams from a list, making it even easier to visit some of your favorite islands. ***
- NookLink App Update – The NookLink service in the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app will also be updated in early October. The update will allow you to use your smart device to perform in-game reactions. **** How about you try it on this opportunity to let your island visitors know exactly how you feel about their mischievous tricks and treats?
Nintendo has also confirmed that another update will be available in late November. Further information on this is to be published “in the coming months”.
And that’s not all, Animal Crossing Switch consoles and amiibo cards have also been found to be replenishing.
