The studio is not limiting itself to only a week. The first week of April will introduce another special nature-themed event in South Korea. South Koreans consider ‘Singmogil’ as the beginning of a new season. The day is “a day for planting trees and caring for our forests” in the country.
As informed in a tweet by Nintendo of America, the day will also get an event of its own.
Honoring South Korean festival Singmogil, a seasonal plant “Forsythia” will be available for the villagers. Just like the real-life celebration, Animal Crossing fans can celebrate in-game by nurturing the plant on their islands. Players can order “Forsythia” anytime between April 1 to April 10.
