The success of Animal Crossing shows no signs of diminishing, and Nintendo has revealed a new free update of Animal Crossing: New Horizons available on July 29th. The update will allow players to enjoy weekly fireworks shows and new seasonal items, but it does not end there. The more interesting will also be the new content arriving. Below you can see the announcement post of both of them on Twitter :
The new content will only be available at the end of the year, and more information will be provided later. Considering the game’s performance (which has sold 35.9 million units since launch, according to data collected on March 31st), it is very likely that this content will not even be the last to arrive. After the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons during the first lockdown, the game has been very successful, even among non-regular players. Nintendo has continued to publish new content, always free.
The only flaw is that the hardcore of Animal Crossing fans required that the content and game mechanics present in previous games were also present in New Horizons. The game has allowed gamers to express their creativity in many ways so far, but in the future, New Horizons could make a further leap in quality, perhaps because of the launch of Switch OLED in October.
