Animal Crossing: New Horizons is getting its promised January update. See what else you can expect besides Carnival with Pavo.
Nintendo today revealed the trailer for the upcoming January update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As promised, the carnival event will bring the predecessor back into play. The new update can be downloaded from January 28th.
In mid-February you will have to collect feathers for the colorful peacock Pavo in order to receive numerous new items to decorate your island. In addition, you can learn new emotions, including dances and confetti, that are appropriate for the season for a short time. The tailoring department will also have new clothes in stock with which you can dress appropriately.
You can also use Nook-Shopping to stock up on items available at short notice for Valentine’s Day before the carnival event (February 1 to 14). Including a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers. You will also be able to find some new pieces of furniture in the future, such as a football rug or a Resetti figure. Towards the end of the trailer, Nintendo reminds you of the 35th anniversary event of Super Mario Bros., which will take place in March. However, further details were not explained.
In the comments, fans are mostly disappointed with the small extent of the update, which hardly goes beyond the one-day event and again only relies on the omnipresent decoration aspect of the game instead of bringing back gameplay features such as Kofis-Café or Käptn. What do you think of the update? Did you hope for more?
