A new month has come and for Animal Crossing New Horizon fans, this means there are new items to collect and a lot of new animals to catch. Aside from these, players from all over the world can now get a new seasonal item from the Nook Shopping. However, similar to previous seasonal items, players only have a limited time to purchase it.
The Grape-Harvest Basket is September’s new seasonal item – a wearable basket which is Animal Crossing’s way to celebrate the Grape Harvest Festival. Players can purchase it for 800 Bells and will be in the shop until September 30 only. Players can buy this time-limited item from the Seasonal tab inside the Nook Shopping catalog option.
Aside from this limited item, players in the Northern Hemisphere can now collect pinecones and acorns which are needed to craft the autumn DIY recipes. Players will also receive a tree’s bounty little tree recipe from Isabelle from her daily announcement or by shooting down balloons.
The coming of a new month also indicates new fish and bugs to catch as well as new sea creatures found by swimming in the ocean. Mantises, honeybees, and other bugs are now spawning in islands in the Southern Hemisphere while red dragonflies, crickets and more can now be caught in islands in the Northern Hemisphere.
Even though a new season has come, Nintendo hasn’t announced any new content for Animal Crossing New Horizons. The last patch released in August added new features in the game including Luna’s dream codes, a fireworks festival, and the ability to back up the save data.
Recently, Nintendo announced that Animal Crossing New Horizons will be receiving Mario-themed furniture and items in March 2021 in celebration of Super Mario’s 35th anniversary.
