Animal Crossing New Horizons Adding New Seasonal Items For Halloween Event

Fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons will have a lot to look forward to in the last months of 2021. Nintendo just revealed that Animal Crossing: New Horizons would have its own Nintendo Direct in October. The yearly Halloween Event, which runs concurrently with the Direct, allows users to purchase and manufacture a range of seasonal goods.

Following the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons in 2020, the game received a slew of free upgrades, both big and minor. Unfortunately, there haven’t been many major changes in Animal Crossing New Horizons in the last several months.

There have been minor upgrades, such as bug patches and special events, but no major changes to attract gamers to return to their island. The Halloween Event is back for another year, and while there isn’t much new material this time around, there are three new goodies for aficionados of the season.


Three new things have been added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons to go along with the reintroduction of the previous Halloween goods. Spooky Trick Lamp, Spooky Tree, and Spooky Treats Basket are the three products.

Fans who went through the initial Halloween event last year may find that the inclusion of these three goodies isn’t enough to persuade them to return. However, these three things should be plenty to keep them occupied until the November release for those who are still playing.

Fans who are interested in these three things will be relieved to learn that they are not difficult to obtain. Each of them is available for purchase from Nook Cranny, with the most expensive item costing 11,600 bells. As predicted, as part of the DIY recipe, they all require Pumpkins, which are plentiful during this occasion. Everything about the event, including Jack’s attendance on October 31st, is scheduled to return.

Some may be disappointed by the Halloween update, which only offers three things for such a usually huge occasion. Disappointed Animal Crossing lovers may still look forward to an Animal Crossing-themed Direct in October, which offers a glimpse at a major future event.

Given that this Animal Crossing update will include its own Direct, it’s reasonable to anticipate that the November update will be substantial. Hopefully, the Animal Crossing Direct hints future improvements and isn’t just a one-time thing.
