Upcoming features in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Most importantly, we will see a Nintendo Direct in September, which means we may have an important announcement related to New Horizons. Not to mention, recently, Nintendo tweeted and ensured players that free content for ACNH is in development. Surprisingly, it also asked players to stay tuned for more information, which could be a hint about the Nintendo Direct presentation.

Upcoming events

Sadly, September will not hold tons of events for players to enjoy. Only Northern hemisphere players will have the opportunity to take part in the bug-off event. Bug Offs are special events that let the player catch as many bugs as they can in a limited time to earn points.

It takes place on the third Saturday of the months of June, July, August, and September, and runs from 9 am to 6 pm. Therefore, if you haven’t taken part in the event, this could be your last chance to get those limited items.

Scenery and bush changes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Interestingly, we will see two beautiful seasons making their appearance on New Horizons islands in September. Northern hemisphere users will enjoy fall while Southern players will enjoy the vibe of spring.

Players can even see the changes in their grass as the Northern hemisphere’s grass already changed into lighter green color. Whereas the Southern hemisphere’s grass should be turned into a faded and moldy color. Nintendo also updates the game and makes changes around the bushes respective to each season.

Hibiscus bushes will stop blooming after September 20; however, Tea Oliver bushes will bloom from September 21 to October 30 in the Northern hemisphere. Unfortunately, Southern hemisphere users will not see any new bush booming in September, but the Camellia bushes will stop blooming after September.
