Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave #02 Announcement

This afternoon, Nintendo unveiled the latest update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the second part of the Summer update. In a short video, shared on their official channels, it was revealed that this update would include Firework Shows. These shows, which take place each Sunday during August, will allow villagers to participate in Redd’s raffle and launch custom-design fireworks.

Additionally, a new dream feature was shown, which appears similar in function to the dream suite from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This will allow the player to access different dream islands, uploaded by others who own the game and even share their own. Not only that, an Island Backup and Restoration feature will also be included as part of this update. This free content will be available for download on the 30th July, with the next update (which appears to be Halloween themed) due sometime in Autumn.

I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave #01 Announcement

Nintendo’s 2020 hit Animal Crossing: New Horizons, yesterday announced the first part of its free Summer update. In a video tweeted by the official Animal Crossing account, the villager can be seen swimming, dunking and diving for sea creatures. This long-awaited addition to the villager’s abilities was discovered by data miners earlier in the year, and it’s great to see it added into the game. Additional updates include the return of Pascal who offers new DIY recipes and some kind of new encounter featuring Gulliver in a piratical outfit. This update will be available from 3rd July with even more content promised to appear in August.

Animal Crossing for NHS

Across the nation, NHS workers are working excruciatingly hard to aid in the relief of COVID-19. During these challenging times, nurses, doctors, social workers, and many more are putting their lives at risk to ensure the safety of the general public.

To show our support, we are asking those who own Animal Crossing New Horizons to send in their custom designs that are inspired by and celebrate all the work the NHS has achieved so far. Not only will these designs be available to view by all our readers, but we will also display a selection of them in an upcoming charity live-stream, where we will be clapping for the NHS in Animal Crossing. You can choose to donate towards our fundraiser, where we hope to raise money for the NHS Charities Together organisation to aid in the current relief efforts, send in a design, or both. We will also be contacting a few of those who donate to take part in the stream.

If you wish to show your support, you can find the form to donate and one to submit a design over at the Animal Crossing for NHS portal by clicking here! Be sure to tell your friends too by using the tag #AC4NHS.

Don’t forget: Stay home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

REVIEW – Animal Crossing New Horizons

First, you became a resident of a quaint town, then you became the mayor… now, for the first time ever, you’ll even be able to run your own island! In a world where we are currently unable to go outside unless absolutely necessary, Nintendo comes into the rescue by launching the latest Animal Crossing title for Nintendo Switch: New Horizons.

After more than a month of getting settled into my new island life, I am now ready to share my verdict on this long-awaited release. Check out what I thought after the break by clicking below.

Departing Memories of Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Only days remain until the departure gate opens for Animal Crossing New Horizons. Not too long until we move away from our lovely towns from our fabulous neighbours. We have many fond memories of turning over a New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS, so we are taking this opportunity to tell them before our New Horizons induced self isolation.

Check them out after the break!

Animal Crossing on Switch: What We Want To See Next

The latest addition to the much-loved Animal Crossing franchise is almost upon us. Later this year, the series will arrive on Nintendo Switch. Its humble beginnings on Nintendo 64 / GameCube encouraged players to build a home to call their own, and befriend the adorable animal villagers found within the game. Players could even invite their real-life friends into their towns locally with the use of a GameCube memory card. Since then, the success of the Animal Crossing series has steadily grown, building on top of its core foundations, and enriching the games with new and engaging features.

On Nintendo DS, players from around the world could connect together to visit each other’s towns for the first time, using Nintendo’s online WiFi Connection. It was also the first title in the series that could be played on a handheld device. On the Wii, players could explore a bustling city full of many different businesses, brimming with exclusive items. With the Wii Speak peripheral, it allowed online friends to speak to one another through voice chat.

With the Nintendo 3DS, the series returned to handheld and put you in charge of an enriched world, where you became the mayor of the town, its fate resting in your hands. The game introduced Public Works Projects, greater customisation and reintroduced classic additions from previous titles, making it the most fulfilling Animal Crossing experience to date.

With more information on the upcoming Nintendo Switch title presumably just around the corner at E3 2019, what better time than now to speculate about what we could see in the new game?
