Winter is looming closer and closer in the Northern Hemisphere, as such, new holidays and events will be made available on Animal Crossing: New Horizons very soon as well. Since the game’s seasonal Halloween event has already come to an end, players are now looking forward to the Fall season which celebrates the Harvest Festival, the game’s version of Thanksgiving.
The Harvest Festival takes place on November 26, but there are so many things you can do before then. Fortunately, Nintendo has released a brand-new content trailer that details all the different things you can expect to arrive at your island this month.
One thing the trailer highlights is the fact that the color palette of the environment will slowly change as each day passes and we move further into November. In other words, the surrounding scenery will begin to take on Autumn-themed colors.
For instance, the grass will change from green to a more yellow-ish shade, while the leaves on trees slowly become orange and red. The trailer also discusses the different bugs and fish you’ll get the chance to catch this month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
That being said, it’s best not to expect a lot of new bugs and fish this time around, especially if you started playing the game when it initially launched in March. That being said, there’s no need to be disappointed because you can still find all kinds of new collectible items scattered throughout your island during this month.
For instance, you will be able to find mushrooms growing next to flowers and trees that you can collect in order to craft a variety of Mushroom DIY recipes. If you dig in specific spots on your island, you might even come across very rare types of mushrooms.
As you reach the later parts of the month, you can start catching maple leaves in order to craft even more Fall-themed items. Since the Fall season brings with it cooler winds, you might come to notice that there won’t be as much new wildlife present in the Northern Hemisphere around this time of the year.
As such, you might even consider this season to be more laidback compared to the warmer seasons in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. That being said, Fall has one of the biggest events in New Horizons, which is the Harvest Festival.
After the highly-anticipated Harvest Festival, you can then look forward to Toy Day, which is the jolly Christmas Event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. December will bring with it a bunch of new content as well as a new event character who will host Toy Day.
The happy-go-lucky reindeer, Jingle, is actually a favorite among Animal Crossing players. Since November gives you the opportunity to relax and not think about a thing, December is the complete opposite as it’s full of holiday spirit.
This year may be a lot of players’ first time participating in Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Toy Day, which is a pretty exciting and fun seasonal event. With the regular stream of updates and new content, New Horizon fans won’t run out of things to do anytime soon.
