Nintendo revealed the upcoming Halloween event coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The new update will introduce, candy, costumes, and horror-themed celebrations as seen in the trailer above. Islanders can expect new Halloween-inspired costumes, the ability to eat candy and partake in a new pumpkin patch activity. Pumpkins can also be harvested and used to create new DIY projects.
As an alternative to trick-or-treating this year, Nintendo also announced a special event that will happen exactly on October 31:
Neighbors will gather in the plaza, which will be adorned with an array of Halloween decorations. You’ll also receive a visit from a mysterious guest, Jack, the “czar of Halloween.” By giving Jack lollipops and candy, you’ll earn spooky in-game rewards. Be sure to save some candy for your neighbors, too, or you might get pranked! Luckily, you can learn a couple of new Reactions to properly express your feelings of fear.
The upcoming event will be available as a free update on September 30, and if the update is downloaded, players will receive a free virtual Ring Con controller from Ring Fit Adventure as a gift.
