Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been going strong since its release in March 2020, receiving new content every few months. While the amount of new features has decidedly slowed down, it looks like Nintendo isn’t quite done with the game, as a new update has gone live introducing new content as well as a taste of what to expect in upcoming seasonal events.

So, what’s new in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.11.0 update? Let us find out.

What’s New in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.11.0 Update?

Fireworks Show Event

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.11.0 update marks the return of the Fireworks Show event that was originally held last year. The new version of the event works pretty much like the original, allowing you to enjoy the celebrations held at the Resident Services plaza while fireworks go off in the sky. New Redd’s Falle items are also available, such as a selection of tasty treats like Cotton Candy, Popsicles, and Bubble Tea.

As part of the event, you are also able to launch your own Custom Design fireworks. The only thing you need to do is provide a pattern to Isabelle during the event and watch your creations go off with a literal bang!

Nook Shopping New Items

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.11.0 update also brings new seasonal items from Nook Shopping. Some of these new items will be made available in August, as part of the Bon Festival event, and in September, as part of the Moon-Viewing Festival.
