Its first anniversary Animal Crossing: New Horizons It’s fast approaching, and Nintendo has a big update for the occasion. The update will arrive later this week, and in addition to providing assistance for spring seasonal items along with it, it will also bring some new in-game features. In fact, most of the update appears to be centered around improvements to custom design features.
This new update starts on March 18th, and when it goes live, players will receive a new upgrade to purchase with Nook Miles. The upgrade is for Custom Design Pro Editor, available through the in-game Nook Phone. Once the upgrade is purchased, Nintendo says players will have a “more robust set of features” at their disposal, and will be able to customize parachutes, mini-flags, Uchiwa, and picture swatches (plus everything else is already customizable through the app).
Nintendo also adds 50 slots to both custom Standard and Professional custom design modes, giving players more space to store their designs. The update will also make Custom Design Portal accessible through players’ Nook phones, so you no longer need to go to the Able Sisters Store to check this out.
Of course, this is not seasonal Animal crossing The update is without seasonal elements, and it looks like we’ll have a lot of those who follow this update. A range of Whoopee Cushions will be available through the Nook Shopping app from March 26th through April 1st, while Able Sisters will be offering a variety of themed fashion items for parties throughout the entire month of April. Plus, Nook Shopping will have prom-themed decorative items, so it looks like players will be able to do it all with the prom items next month.
Players will also have the 1st anniversary cake in their mailbox after applying the update, so be sure to check it out. Additionally, this update matches the launch of the Sanrio Collaboration Pack, which will be available at Target for $ 5.99 starting March 26. The collaboration pack comes with six amiibo cards that can be used to invite Sanrio-inspired characters to your island and purchase Sanrio-inspired furniture.
On the horizon, we also got to launch Island Tour Creator on March 23, which is an online tool that will be available through the end of the year and allow users to create posters and teasers of their islands using screenshots captured. There is also a Build-A-Bear collaboration coming in the future, but at the moment we don’t have a start date for this specific event. We’ll let you know when Nintendo announces one, so stay tuned for more.
