Nintendo keeps introducing and reintroducing events into Animal Crossing: New Horizons every month. This helps keep the huge fanbase of the series engaged in activities throughout the year. While some updates bring about bigger changes in the game, events are something that appear every month.

In fact, Nintendo even keeps reintroducing older events from previous months. While this might be a tad bit boring for veterans of the title, it keeps newbies of the title in the loop.

After the disappointment that the Animal Crossing community received at E3 2021, Doug Bowser of Nintendo surprised the fanbase with news of their future plans regarding this life-simulation title.
