Animal Crossing Updates

If like me your addicted to Animal Crossing, you’ll be happy to hear that Nintendo just announced the upcoming series of FREE seasonal updates to our beloved Animal Crossing Franchise.

These updates will start from tomorrow, April 23rd, and continue all the way through to the end of June!. From Nintendos video, it appears updates include a whole range of expansions, events, new characters and experiences for the players to enjoy, full list below:

  • Treasure Trawler (Jolly Redd)

Jolly Redd will be patrolling the high seas and stop off at players’ islands randomly to sell off some of his unique art pieces and furniture items. If I’ve done my homework correctly, the player, if like last iterations of the game, will need to guess which piece of his art are REAL or FAKE. Buying a real piece of art will allow the player to donate this to the new museum expansion, the art gallery.

  • April 23rd – May 4th – Nature Day

Grab your watering cans and plant feeder ! Nature Day will be celebrated in game with lots of nook mile, nature-inspired, special challenges. Planting shrubs, flowers, trees, and watering flower beds and the like I’d imagine ! There may be some nice rewards too once all the challenges are complete, but we will need to find out !

  • Leif’s Garden Shop – Island Visitor

Expect regular island visits from Nature-boy, Leif, as he comes to offer some of his special saplins, flowers and other nature related goodies to plant around your island.

  • May 1st – May 7th – May Day Mystery TourĀ 

We may not be able to travel anywhere currently due to lockdown regulations amidst covid-19, however lets pack our virtualĀ  weekend luggage, as AC players will be able to take a special nook miles flight to a new special island thats different from the usual ”mystery islands” your used to ! There are rumours there may be a special visitor there too, who could it be ?

  • May 18th – May 31st – International Museum Day

After receiving your special stamp card, players will earn in game rewards after collecting stamps on their museum stamp card.

  • June 1st – June 30th – Wedding Season
