Famous YouTuber Zach, from the channel SwitchForce, came up with a brand new video recently. In that, he talked about how the online simulation title has mostly been dry in terms of receiving something unexpected and fresh. But he also had a piece of positive news for the fans who lost all hopes of getting new content in ACNH.

According to Zach, it’s August which means it’s also the time of the firework season. It also indicates that something huge is coming this Sunday, August 7th, along with the remaining Sundays (August 14th, August 21st, and August 28th) in the Nintendo Switch hit.
