The Halloween-themed update is out on September 30.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ steady stream of updates and seasonal content will continue at the end of this month, and with Halloween coming up in about a month’s time, it’s no surprise that the next update will bring plenty of spooky content with it.
Nintendo have released a new trailer to detail Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Fall Update, which will bring new Halloween-themed activities when it goes live on September 30. Players can buy candies from the shop to later hand out on Halloween, grow pumpkins for DIY recipes, use the new “Haunt” reaction, and more. There are new Halloween-themed items being added in (such as new clothes) as well.
Additionally, some new minor additions and quality of life improvements are also being introduced, such as additional customization options for your character, and being able to use reactions from Nook Link. The next update will be coming in late November, themed around Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now on Nintendo Switch.
