Festive fun for all

Animal Crossing New Horizon's Fall Update has confirmed plenty of fantastic fun coming this Fall.

The majority of this will centre on Halloween themed content, but the developers at Nintendo won't be able to rest anytime soon as winter will come knocking soon after.

In fact, the Fall Update trailer has already confirmed more to come before 2020 comes to a close.

For Animal Crossing fanatics that means all new content arriving to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas

Animal Crossing New Horizon's Winter Update - Release Date

The Fall trailer has teased that the next free update to Animal Crossing New Horizons will encompass Thanksgiving and Christmas events.

It's possible that like the Summer Update this arrives in two parts.

However, the team at Nintendo try to split it up, the new content should start rolling in from "Late November".

Animal Crossing New Horizon's Winter Update - New Content?

It's hard to make any definitive suggestions right now, not least when we still haven't experienced the Fall update.

But, it does seem incredibly likely that some of the gameplay mechanics used for the Fall Update and Halloween will be reused for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

In this case, it seems a given we'll see new outfits/costumes players will be able to purchase which celebrate this unique season.

Everything from Santa outfits to little reindeer antlers we bet.

Equally, during Halloween players can be seen to purchase candy at the store, used for DIY recipes. We imagine we'll see something similar for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Not to mention, a bevvy of new festive decorations to adorn your home and island.

Take a look at the Halloween trailer below to give you a sense of what we can expect. Only, obviously, it'll be Thanksgiving and Christmas themed!

Stay tuned for more info as and when it arrives!
