Animal Crossing: New Horizons May 2021: Upcoming Update to Bring ‘New Twists’ to the Game with Fresh Events

Published 04/26/2021, 12:41 PM EDT


Last year saw the rise in the popularity of many simple and minimalist games like Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, Among Us, and of course, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. While the popularity of Among Us has taken a hit lately, Animal Crossing still seems to be serving its niche fan base. Recently, Nintendo announced a major content update for the game, which includes a roster of new events and items along with the return of a few older events.

The latest update, known as the April 2021 content update, is about to go live on April 28 and has a lot in store for the players. This one is basically this year’s Spring update, which automatically means a change in the in-game regional fauna, among a lot of other things.

This update will include a trip to a new island on May Day. Judging by how much we enjoyed Maze Island last year, we can anticipate a similar blast this year as well. But wait, there’s more!

This year’s May Day event will go live in the game from April 29, with the fun ending on May 7. Players will need to collect a May Day ticket from Orville between these dates and visit an island that is unexplored.

Moving on, we have International Museum Day, from May 18th to 31st. Celebrate this by heading down to your island museum and taking part in a special stamp rally that Blathers has organized.

Finally, we have the Wedding Season which will span throughout the month of June. Basically, Reese and Cyrus will be celebrating their wedding anniversary at Harv’s Island throughout June. They need you to click them some great pictures. No, they probably do not like selfies. Furthermore, you can find wedding-themed furniture and fashion items at the Nook Shopping and Able Sisters stores throughout June!

Animal Crossing has been around for a long time. Its latest iteration, which released last year, instantly built a loyal fan base for its own. A major reason for this is that the title, with its simple and relaxing gameplay, makes it an ideal escape from daily life. As a result, the fan base of ACNH includes a lot of celebrities as well. A notable example of this would be Brie “Captain Marvel” Larson. This is perhaps why this title has still managed to stand tall amidst the fall of titles like Fall Guys and Among Us.
