Animal Crossing: New Horizons Honours Brazilian Festival With New Item

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is offering a limited-edition seasonal item based on Brazil’s Festa do Peão de Barretos rodeos. Known in English as Cowboy Festival of Barretos, this annual event kicks off every August in Brazil and too celebrate that, New Horizons has just added a rodeo-style springy ride-on.

Marking the springy ride-on item's eighth iteration - previously available in White, Brown, Dark Brown, Red, Yellow, Pink and Zebra - this new design includes a brown horse with some style differences. There's a traditional saddle, yellow mane and reins themed around the famous rodeo, which kicks off next month from August 19 until August 29.

That's available right now for 2,000 Bells from Nook's Cranny, matching previous variations but trying to sell it only earns you 500 Bell from Timmy and Tommy, who'd pay 10,000 for other versions. If you're interested, you've got until August 15, 2021 to purchase it.

Sadly, not all fans are happy, and many replies have complained about the lack of a meaningful update to New Horizons since April. Though Nintendo's confirmed they've got further plans for their wildly successful life simulation game, Monopoly aside, we've yet to see what those are. Soon as we know, we'll keep you informed.
