Why are we reporting on Animal Crossing: New Horizons on this site? Because we can’t hear you complaining about how this game isn’t massively multiplayer from the distant ocean aboard our golden yacht. Also because this multiplayerish game is getting a whole lot of new content, including some fresh events, returning NPCs, a new section for the museum, and some new items.
This coming Thursday, April 23rd, will see the new update land to the game, which sees Leif the sloth return with plants to buy including all-new bush plants. Blathers’ museum is also getting an expansion in the form of an art wing, which can be fed through donations purchased by another returning character by the name of Redd the fox, who will now be arriving to player islands via boat to sell artwork and furnishings.
Incidentally, this new update also kicks off a Nature Day event that runs between April 23rd and May 4th, which will feature Nook Miles rewards for completing nature-themed challenges. The events don’t stop there: May 1st through the 7th will see the May Day Tour arrive with a special one-time use May Day Ticket to visit a special island; May 18th through the 31st celebrates International Museum Day with museum stamp challenges to earn in-game rewards; and the entire month of June will celebrate Wedding Season, where players can visit Harvey’s Island to take anniversary photos and get wedding-themed items.
