As before Animal El Obour: New Horizons Updates, Update 1.5.0 was released early on the Nintendo Switch. The update is scheduled to be released tomorrow, but Animal Crossing fans will now have the opportunity to participate in some of the fun fall activities in the game! As previously announced, the update will allow players to grow their own pumpkin, revisit dreams, and prepare a costume for Halloween. Halloween night will also allow players to hand out candy to fellow villagers, and get some fun rewards for a limited time. It should be the perfect addition for those looking to celebrate the Halloween season!

There’s a lot to get excited about with this update! Growing pumpkins is a completely new addition to the series, and it will allow players to create some completely new DIY recipes, especially for the season. The Halloween event will start on October 31 at 5 PM, so players will have some time to get their decorations and ready-made outfits!
Today’s update will also give players the option to revisit Dream Islands. Dream Islands are a recent addition to the game, Allowing players to visit the island when creating another player without actually affecting the island itself. For those who want to show off their carrots without worrying about other players stomping flowers or passing all the fruit, it’s an attractive option. Now, players will have a list of dream islands they have visited in the past, allowing them to easily come back and take another look.
After this update, another major update will be released in November. Like update 1.5.0, the following update will focus on the following major holidays: Christmas and Thanksgiving. As of this writing, Nintendo hasn’t revealed much about what fans can expect, but it looks like Franklin the Rooster and Jingle the Reindeer will make an appearance again.
