More Content Is Coming

Animal Crossing New Horizons is entering the holiday season, which means an ample amount of content is coming soon! 

The major update is going to implement a ton of features including the brand new Toy Day.

However, that is not all that is coming soon.

Nintendo has already announced future updates for the game; including the free update coming in January.

This one is going to be a massive one as well, as it will implement some new events for players to partake in.

Here's all we know! 


January Update

Confirmed via the following image; New Horizons will be getting a free update towards the end of January.

As well, this will see the implementation of the villager 'Pave' the peacock. 



As of now, we do not have an exact date for the new update.

We can assume it will be around the last two weeks of the month! 

Be on the lookout for further confirmation as the dates draw closer. 


Festivale Event

Pave is the ringleader behind the annual Festivale event.

This event however usually takes place in February; so there is quite a bit of time between the update and the actual event. 

Possibly alluding to the notion that a lot of content is going to be within this update! 


More News? 

As of now, we do not have any more news on the January update.

Be sure to check back within the coming weeks, as we are bound to hear more regarding the update!
