Just like Monster Hunter Rise, it had been confirmed very recently that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is also receiving an update from Nintendo later tonight. The update is not as large as Monster Hunter Rise’s, and there isn’t as much new content planned, but it is still an update to the game nevertheless.
Well, the update has released. Once you update Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the game should be at 1.10.0. As previously mentioned, the update doesn’t add much content. In fact, the update’s only focus is on bringing back May and June seasonal events to the game, but with a twist. The patch notes are down below.
Ver. 1.10.0a: Wedding Season
Adds new Seasonal Events:
- May Day (April 29th to May 7th): Collect a May Day ticket from Orville at the airport between the above dates and visit an island that’s totally unique. Seasoned travelers can look forward to a different destination to last year’s experience – take a trip and find out for yourself!
- International Museum Day (May 18th to May 31st): Visit your island’s museum between the above dates and take part in the special stamp rally that Blathers has organized to celebrate International Museum Day. You’ll also find stamps around the art gallery, so tour the whole museum and complete your stamp cards!
- Wedding Season (June 1st to June 30th): To celebrate the month of their wedding anniversary, Reese and Cyrus are visiting to Harv’s Island throughout June and they want you to help take some special wedding photos. Use your keen eye for style to decorate the scene and capture a memorable moment for them. You’ll also find wedding-themed furniture and fashion items in the Nook Shopping and Able Sisters stores. Take a look at what’s on offer and grab something that takes your fancy!
- New seasonal items available: Be sure to keep an eye on Nook Shopping, as there are a whole host of special time-limited items on the way in the coming months. Items that celebrate Japan’s Children’s Day (April 28th to May 5th), the UK’s annual Cheese Rolling event (May 22nd to May 31st), Mother’s Day (May 1st to May 31st), Father’s Day (June 1st to June 30th) and more will be available. Keep checking and pick up these special items before they’re gone!
- Bug Offs and Fishing Tourneys are back! In addition to the free update content, Flick will be returning to the plaza by Resident Services for the monthly Bug Off. Get busy with your net on June 26th, July 24th, August 28th and September 25th to earn points that can be traded with him for some special items. If you prefer your wildlife a little wetter, you can also look forward to the next Fishing Tourney. Watch for CJ appearing in the plaza on July 10th and go reel in some handsome rewards!
