For many that want a reality check, the COVID-19 pandemic is just over one year old now. But to make things worse, Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons also happens to be the same age as the global infliction virtually. For those that might not recall, the latest entry in the series also happened to arrive at the same time at the beginning for collective concern against the epidemic in limiting its spread.

Already, Animal Crossing: New Horizons showed to bring some momentum in anticipation for its approaching birthday party in February announcing the long-awaited addition of Super Mario-themed items for the game which arrive at the beginning of March. Now similarly, we can expect the next official update at the end of the month according to Nintendo.

Oddly enough there is only a blog post – no trailer. But, Nintendo presses on the forthcoming spring update which will cover new additions; mainly enhancements to the custom design program in-game for more creative flexibility.

In the game’s first year, players around the world have uploaded over 12 million Custom Designs to the Custom Design Portal. We hope you continue to enjoy creating and sharing your designs for many more seasons to come, especially since the update will bring 50 additional custom design slots to both the Normal and Pro Custom Design modes!

The titular application on your NookPhone is receiving an update with Custom Design Pro Editor +. The addition will incorporate custom umbrellas, small flags, uchiwa, and photo stands. As for timed seasonal items, Nintendo prepares 1st anniversary cake which will be sent to players that are online starting March 18.

And with April Fool’s Day just on the horizon, whoopee cushions will be available in the Nook Shop from March 26 to April 1. Additionally, Prom Season is said to commence later in April welcoming “more elegant […] prom-themed items” from April 1 to April 30. On March 23, however, Nintendo will be launching timed Island Tour Creator.

“The new Island Tour Creator launches on March 23 and is a limited-time web service currently planned to be available until the end of this year that lets you use screenshots and footage captured in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to create a poster and trailer for your island.” Nintendo also reveals to launch Sanrio Sweetness ‘Hello Kitty’-themed pack for the game on March 26 for $5.99.

On the topic of Animal Crossing: New Horizons  meeting the end of its first year, Nintendo previously pressed at the launch of the game that the title is planned to meet years of content down the road. You can read the full report by heading here.
