Animal Crossing New Horizons Will Keep Getting Updates In 2021

Get ready for Bunny Day round 2?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons may have launched in March, but the game has received near-constant updates – from seasonal events to quality-of-life improvements.

That looks set to continue into 2021, with Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser telling Polygon that "we definitely see that continuing" when asked if updates are likely to be of a similar pattern.

It certainly makes sense, with the game being updated for each season in 2020.

Animal Crossing fans have been able to earn items in holiday-themed events such as Easter and Halloween, and these changes have helped the game stay relevant months after launch.

There have been new mechanics, too, like the ability to go diving.

The game has been a mainstay on social media throughout the global pandemic, and with no real end in sight, it sounds as though it'll be a great game for newcomers to sink their teeth into over the festive period.
