A new free update of Animal Crossing New Horizons, one of the most prominent productions of the past year, is coming today.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons For new buyers or long-term island residents, we hope this free update will enliven their island by bringing the carnival spirit, new seasonal items and more.
We’re getting into the festive mood with the Animal Crossing New Horizons update
Animal Crossing: New Horizonsperiodically receives updates that offer events and features to the game, and this new update includes a colorful and feather-filled Festival event, new additions to seasonal items, new Reactions, and items to purchase. You can take a look at the promotional video published for the festival and the new features to be added to the game below.
Starting on January 28, the new update will add the following features to the game:
Festival Event – Nothing can hold the cold weather better than a colorful Festival event full of dancing and flying feathers. On February 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive on the island square to create some confetti and a carnival vibe.
Only on this day, players can catch colorful feathers floating on the island with their nets and exchange them to Pavé to get a passionate dance trick in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be a particularly rare sight, so it’s best to catch them and trade them for Pavé. Players can invite their friends to their island or go on a visit to join the celebrations together.
New Reactions – To express the festival excitement, the Viva Response to the Festival Set can be purchased for a limited time from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny with in-game ‘bell’ and includes reactions to Feelin ‘It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.
New Outfits – Festival outfits will be available at Able Sisters for a limited time starting February 1, so players can show off their style.
Seasonal items – New seasonal items will be available at Nook Shopping. Players can celebrate the emotional season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets available for purchase from February 1 to February 14. There will also be other items related to Lunar New Year and Big Game Celebrations for certain periods in January and February.
