Animal Crossing: New Horizons will soon get a free update that will introduce the Festivale Event, new reactions, new clothing and fresh seasonal items.

Clear your schedules! Animal Crossing: New Horizons is getting a free update on January 28. The update includes a colourful and feather-filled Festivale event, some heartfelt seasonal additions, new Reactions and new items to purchase.

The new update will add the following features to the game:

  • Festivale Event – Festivale event will be filled with dancing and flying feathers. 
    • On February 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive at your island’s plaza to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. On the day of the event, you can capture colourful feathers floating on your island with your net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. 
    • Rainbow feathers will be an especially rare sight, so be sure to catch them and trade them with Pavé.
  • New Reactions – The Viva Festival Reaction Set can be purchased with in-game Bells from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny for a limited time and includes Feelin’ It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.
  • New Clothing – Starting February 1, Festivale clothing will be available at the Able Sisters shop for a limited time.
  • Seasonal Items – Make sure to keep an eye out for seasonal items at the Nook Stop in Resident Services and through Nook Shopping. Celebrate the sentimental season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets, which will be available for purchase from February 1 until February 14. 
    • There will also be other items related to Groundhog Day and Big Game Celebration available for certain periods during January and February.

For our friends across the pond: Starting March 26, the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack will be available for purchase exclusively at Target stores across the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $5.99. 

The Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack contains all six amiibo cards from this unique Sanrio Collaboration Series. You’ll be able to use these amiibo cards in compatible games. Further details will be revealed in the future.
