Animal Crossing New Horizons shares holiday events and new gameplay features in a free November 19 update


The next couple of months are all about the holidays in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. A big ol’ info drop from the game has offered up details of new seasonal events, new features, and a lot of adorable new items to chase after as part of a free update on November 19th.

It all starts with Turkey Day on November 26th, when players can help Franklin the chef collect ingredients to go in the dishes that will be on display in the plaza and get a gift for doing so. Then there’s the month of Toy Day from December 1st through the 25th, bringing holiday furnishings, purchasable toys from Nook’s Cranny, themed clothing at Able Sisters’ shop, and a visit from Jingle the reindeer on December 24th with delivery tasks for players to complete for rewards. Finally, December 26th through the 31st will ring in the new year with festive items and an in-game countdown event on December 31st starting at 7:00 p.m.

In addition to all of the seasonal goodness, the update is introducing six new hairstyles, nine new reactions, the ability to upgrade house storage, the ability to visit random islands through dreams in your character’s bed, and a new feature that lets players transfer their character or their entire island over to a new Nintendo Switch system. Specifics on how that works are outlined on Nintendo’s support site.
