Nine new bugs, eight fish, pine cones and acorns headline September’s changes.
Somehow it’s already September… This year has certainly been a challenge, but one thing remains constant. Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to be a delight.
Leaving August behind means the changing of seasons as Animal Crossing players in the Northern Hemisphere bid farewell to Summer and welcome Fall. As we enter the best of the four seasons, we’re treated to a whole host of changes, most of which are detailed in a new video released by the official Animal Crossing Twitter account.
The biggest change this month is the addition of both acorns and pine cones. These can be grabbed by players when shaking trees (acorns from Hardwood trees and pine cones from Cedar trees) and can be used to create a range of seasonal DIY items. The DIY recipes can be collected in the usual ways and can include items such as the Pine Bonsai Tree and the Leaf Campfire.
As is the way with Animal Crossing – a new month also means new fish, bugs and sea creatures and September is certainly no different. This month there are a total of nine new or returning bugs, eight fish and five sea creatures.
This isn’t the first time New Horizons has made the headlines today either. Presidential Candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris’ campaign has released a range of official campaign signs that players can download and use to show their support ahead of the US presidential election that takes place this November.
While these changes are a little lighter on content than the two summer updates we received, we’re in for a treat soon. At the end of the summer update 2 video, it was teased that the next major update to hit players islands would be Halloween related. Given we’re now only a couple of months away from the spookiest time of year, I’d expect that update to drop some point soon.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
