As with the previous ones An animal Intersection: New horizons updates, update 1.5.0 was released early on the Nintendo Switch. The update was supposed to come out tomorrow, but Animal Crossing fans will now have the opportunity to take part in some of the fun autumn activities of the game! As previously announced, the update will allow players to grow their own pumpkins, reconsider their dreams and prepare a costume for Halloween. Halloween night will also allow players to hand out candy to their neighbors and receive some fun prizes for a limited time. It should be the perfect addition for those who want to celebrate Halloween season!

There is something to get excited about in this update! Growing a pumpkin is a brand new addition to the series and will allow players to create some brand new recipes for pets, especially for the season. The Halloween event will start on October 31 at 17:00, so players will have time to prepare their decorations and costumes!
Today’s update will also give players the opportunity to review Dream Islands. Dream Islands is a recent addition to the game that allows players to visit another player’s island creation without actually having an impact on the island itself. For those who want to show off their islands without worrying about whether other players will trample the flowers or slide all the fruit, this is an attractive option. Players will now have a list of Dream Islands they have visited in the past, allowing them to easily return and look again.
Following this update, another major update will be released in November. Similar to update 1.5.0, the next one will focus on the next big holidays: Christmas and Thanksgiving. At the time of this writing, Nintendo has not revealed much information about what fans can expect, but it seems that the turkey Franklin and the deer Jingle will reappear.
Animal crossing: New horizons is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out all our previous coverage of the game right here.
