Animal Crossing: New Horizons devs hope updates give surprises for years to come
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is introducing something we didn’t really see with previous games. The Switch title is receiving regular updates, which are primarily tied into seasonal events. Bunny Day kicked things off right around launch, and the game is continuing to go strong with Nature Day and more.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons director Aya Kyogoku spoke about the approach to future updates in an interview with CNET. Although Kyogoku wouldn’t dive into any specifics, she did mention that Nintendo is looking to continue surprising players “in two years or three years down the road”.
Kyogoku’s full words:
“…Animal Crossing is a game where you’re able to enjoy seasonal changes throughout the year, and it syncs with real time and through that you are able to basically sync your real life with the game. We want to make sure that in two years or three years down the road, players will still continue to find new surprises in the game. So we hope to create an update that you can do that with.”
Nature Day is currently ongoing until May 4. May Day Tour, International Museum Day, and Wedding Season will follow next. We have all of the details here.
