Nintendo recently announced that Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be featured in its very own Nintendo Direct on October 2021. This direct will showcase new updates, features, and content for the game. Millions of players around the world have been captivated by the game since its launch in March 2020, and this exciting direct will bring even more excitement to ACNH fans everywhere.
It’s no surprise that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become incredibly popular since its launch over a year ago. It became the fastest-selling digital title ever, racking up 13.41 million downloads in the space of two weeks. It was also the best-selling game of 2020 according to sales in Japan, Britain, and Germany. The game is a huge hit with casual players and hardcore gamers alike.
The success of ACNH has been so great that it has even inspired spin-off games such as Super Mario Bros 35 and Splatoon 2’s Splatfest tournament series; both of which borrow ideas from Animal Crossing while introducing their own unique twists.
Animal Crossing fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the October Direct to see what new content is coming their way. There hasn’t been much information released about what to expect from this direct yet but speculation is running rampant among fans on social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter.
Players are hoping for more Halloween-themed events like last year’s spooky Halloween event which included creepy creatures roaming your island until you scared them away with a flashlight. Fans are also hoping for further customization options such as new hairstyles or clothing items as well as additional visiting villagers who can move into your island or visit from time to time.
