Provide new Animal Crossing summer items for a limited time

  • Animal Crossing: The summer update of New Horizons adds a variety of new features, including dreaming, backup, and a weekly firework show. However, this is not all the new features in the current game. The Nook shopping catalog has also added some new items to its seasonal collection, which can be purchased with Animal Crossing Bells.

    Three new limited-time items can be ordered now: Rodeo-style elastic riding clothes, Hikoboshi costumes and Orihime costumes. You can find these tags under the "Seasonal" tab in the Nook Shopping terminal, and each of them can be used until August 31. The price of the former is 2,000 bells and the price of the latter two is 2,500.

    The update also adds a backup function. This only applies to Switch Online subscribers, you can backup New Horizon save data in case of losing or damaging the Switch. However, the way this feature works is different from the typical cloud storage provided through the service.

    The latest 1.4.0 update of New Horizons also added a new summer event: fireworks display. Every Sunday at 7pm from your time, you will be able to watch the fireworks in the game with your friends and villagers. During the performance, Isabel will be stationed in your city square and provide you with free wearable bumpers. Redd will also have its own raffle tent, but a Nook miles Ticket is required to qualify for the raffle, where you will be able to win festive items such as balloons, windmills and fountain fireworks.
