Things Get Spooky in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween Update

Autumn, the leaves begins to fall, the weather gets chilly, and the next free Animal Crossing: New Horizons update is just around the corner, this time bringing some ghoulish tricks and treats to your island paradise.

Starting from the 30th September, villagers will be able to purchase pumpkin seeds from Leif year-round (or Nook’s Cranny during October), allowing them to grow the festive squash to use in spooky DIY recipes. Throughout the month, Nook’s Cranny will also be selling candy, the Able Sisters will have Halloween costumes ready to order, and the Town Hall will even have frightening make up to exchange for Nook Miles.

When it comes to the big day on the 31st October after 5pm, your fellow residents will gather round the plaza to partake in the Halloween festivities. A rather mysterious fellow, Jack, will also be visiting to provide special in-game rewards in exchange for the cavity inducing candy… be sure to keep some aside for your neighbours though, they may have some brand new reactions to teach.

In addition to the Halloween goodies, this new update will also introduce a favourites list to the Dream Suite as well as an ability to perform reactions from the NookLink app service.

Check out the press release and gallery after the break!

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!

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!

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!

It’s nearly a month before New Horizons releases and we don’t know too much about that title. Hopefully all that shall change after Thursday afternoon as Nintendo will be hosting a Animal Crossing Direct presentation from 2pm UK time!
