Animal Crossing New Horizons recently dropped a trailer for the upcoming free update. The update drops on January 28 and brings Pavé to the island. He will set the mood for the Festivale that takes place on February 15, and players can have fun celebrating with friends. In the minute-long trailer, Nintendo showed how colorful and festive the island will get once the update arrives. At the end of this trailer, Nintendo also announced the timeline for the upcoming Mario update. The Italian plumber comes hopping onto islands during March. However, a recent tweet from Nintendo reveals that it has a lot more planned for the March update.
The trailer doesn’t talk about much except for announcing Pavé’s arrival and the Festivale date. However, the update isn’t as sad and mundane as it sounds. With Valentine’s day arriving, Animal Crossing New Horizons wants to make sure players get the message out to their special someone. https://twitter.com/animalcrossing/status/1354066778847113216 Apart from all the various feathers that players can catch on their islands after this update, Nintendo’s Japanese site reveals much more. According to a rough translation from Google, Setsubun and Valentine’s themed items arrive in the game. https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/1354172264330227714 There is a heart-shaped chocolate box for the love day theme and a heart rose bouquet too. To make things better, according to Nintendo, these items will change colors and styles everyday.
