Last night, Nintendo finally released their first substantial update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After upsetting many players with lackluster dialog and player card features, Nintendo announced in a tweet that they would be releasing an update and that future content was planned to hit the floors by the end of the year.
The update went live and brought with it a lot of new items and seasonal changes. Here's the complete roundup for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.11 update.
1.11 update to Animal Crossing
The update arrived with a lot of new items, and will be bringing in more in the coming days, according to dataminers. Nintendo has planned Halloween and other future events in the coming months. Rumors suggest that the company will release seasonal items for these events at the appropriate times.
Here are some of the items that are here or will be coming soon.
- Eggplant cow (Obon Festival) 8/10-16
- Cucumber horse (Obon Festival) 8/10-16
- Dango (Moon viewing festival) 9/12-21
- Moon cakes (Moon viewing festival) 9/12-21
- Songpyeon (Chuseok) 9/12-21
Additionally, there will be Halloween themed items coming, as found by dataminers. This includes the Spooky Tree, Spooky Trick Lamp and Spooky Tree Basket. These are items that have been in the game before and will likely be returning around the holiday season. Other events and items were also leaked.
Obviously, these will be related to the upcoming events. Here are the ones scheduled for the next two months in Animal Crossing.
- Cowherd and Weaver Girl Day: August 5th–14th (recurring event)
- Bon Festival: August 10th–16th (new to 1.11)
- Grape Harvest Festival: September 1st–30th (recurring event)
- Moon Viewing Day: September 12th–21st (new to 1.11)
- Chuseok: September 12th–21st (new to 1.11)
The Fireworks event will also be returning throughout the month of August alongside some new items. Popsicles in varying flavors, new fruit teas and cotton candy will all be added as a way to enjoy the fireworks show.
It's true that this isn't the massive update fans were wanting. Unfortunately, there's no new furniture like Gyroids, and Brewster didn't make his triumphant return to Animal Crossing with the Roost.
