Animal Crossing-update voegt nieuwe elementen en evenementen toe

Animal Crossing: New Horizons krijgt vanaf 23 april weer een aantal updates. Op die dag worden twee nieuwe NPC's toegevoegd. Nintendo heeft via een video laten zien wat we tot eind juni kunnen verwachten.

Op 23 april kan Leif's Garden Shop op bezoek komen. Je kunt van hem struiken kopen, waarmee je weer verder het uiterlijk van je eiland kunt customizen. Verder is er Redd, die nieuwe kunst en meubilair verkoopt. De kunstwerken die je koopt komen in het museum terecht, dat na de update een nieuwe ruimte krijgt. In mei en juni komen verder nieuwe activiteiten om spelers bezig te houden. Tijdens Nature Day kun je meer Nook Miles verdienen met natuurverrijkende missies en tijdens de Wedding Season help je een stel met het versieren van de trouwlocatie.

  • Leif’s Garden Shop – Nature-loving Leif will regularly visit players’ islands to sell his flourishing assortment of foliage, including shrubs and flower seeds. These decorative items will help make any island paradise a little greener.
  • Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler – After downloading the free update, Jolly Redd will occasionally show up in his boat to sell in-game art, as well as furniture with unique colors. Like in previous Animal Crossing games, players will have to figure out which art pieces are real and which are fake. After purchasing genuine art, players can donate it to the island museum to open an art gallery, which will display all types of donated pieces, from paintings to sculptures.
  • Nature Day (April 23 to May 4) – During the Nature Day period, special Nook Miles challenges will be available that focus on nature-inspired goals, such as planting trees and watering flowers.
  • May Day Tour (May 1 to 7) – In the first week of May, players can use a one-time May Day Ticket at the island airport to head out on a limited-time tour to an island that looks different than the usual mystery island tours. A special visitor who looks familiar might also be there…
  • International Museum Day (May 18 to 31) – To celebrate International Museum Day, players can take part in a Stamp Rally. After receiving a special stamp card, players can enjoy viewing fish, insects and fossils while collecting stamps at the various museum exhibits to earn an in-game reward.
  • Wedding Season (June 1 to 30) – During a nuptial-themed June, players can visit Harvey’s island to meet the married couple Reese and Cyrus, as well as help arrange and take anniversary photos with them in the wedding-picture studio. Players will get wedding-themed items as a token of their gratitude.
