Major fall changes coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Scenery changes

Nintendo likes to relate New Horizons to users’ regular life; thus, don’t expect to see all your surroundings bright orange right after the update. Just like every season, you will notice some minor changes happening over to your island and this will last for the whole of September.

You will notice that the grass on your island is slowly fading away from the bright green color. In October you will notice big changes such as your surroundings will start turning to orange color, including the trees and grass. However, if you want to see your entire island in different shades of orange, then you have to wait till November.

Upcoming seasonal items and materials in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There will be a lot of seasonal items and materials to collect throughout the fall season if you are a beginner. You may have already started collecting Acorns and Pine Cones on your island. Acorns can be found in hardwood trees, while pine cones can only be found in cedar trees and they will fall down to the ground just like tree branches.

Interestingly, you can even craft a bunch of items by using them as materials. Sadly, if you want the fall DIY recipes, you can only get them through balloons other than trading.

Other than that, in November, you will be able to spot tons of mushrooms on your island and craft new items with them. Furthermore, most players consider the mushroom items as the most attractive and best items in the entire game.

Fall events

Fall has two of the most iconic events of New Horizons, and they are the Halloween and Turkey Day events. Throughout the Halloween event, it will involve you growing pumpkins on your island to get some DIY recipes. Not to mention, Nintendo has even introduced new Halloween items that you can get from your villagers in 2021.
