Animal Crossing: New Horizons has received many updates since its launch back in March, with seasonal updates adding new items, mechanics, and challenges to the game. Now, as northern hemisphere players experience fall (while spring has sprung for the southern hemisphere), Nintendo has promised that the next seasonal update is approaching.
A post on Nintendo Canada’s website about upcoming free updates for Switch games, picked up on by Animal Crossing World, has revealed that a fall update is coming soon. “There’s another free update around the corner,” the post reads.
“Be prepared for seasonal in-game events and activities, plus some spook-tacular tricks and treats,” it continues. This makes it pretty clear that the next update will be Halloween-themed.
How New Horizons will handle Halloween remains to be seen, although given the game’s focus on swapping outfits and building up a wardrobe, there could be some fun costumes involved. Whatever it is, we hope that it’s less annoying that Bunny Day.
