Animal Crossing anniversary, April Fool’s, and Bunny Day

For the game’s first anniversary, players will receive a special cake as part of the celebrations. Although there won’t be a full-blown celebratory event, it’s still cool to see the developers rewarding players for their support. They will find this very cute cake in their mailbox.

The Bunny Day event also returns to New Horizons, but for a shorter period of time. Unlike last year, it will be a 7-day event instead of 14 from March 28 to April 4. Players can dig up eggs for free, which they can use for special Bunny Day-themed DIY recipes. Players can also visit Nook’s Cranny every day for a new item as part of the Bunny Day series.

On April 1, the game also returns to the classic April Fool’s Day event after it wasn’t celebrated last year. As part of the celebrations, players can buy Whoopie Cushions in a different color every day from Nook Shopping.
