Latest - Bunny Day Is Live

Bunny day has officially started, bringing Easter to Animal Crossing.

There are so many things to explore so be sure to continue reading because we've got all of the info.

Start Date

Bunny Day lands a week before Easter, just like in 2020, meaning that the event should go live on Sunday, March 28th 2021.

Despite the fact that the actual Bunny Day is on April 4th, 2021, you will be able to visit Nook's Cranny a week before and purchase some exclusive Bunny Day items ahead of the big day!


Zipper Returns

Zipper has returned to Animal Crossing, despite fans not being too fond of the event character last time.

LURKING - Why does Zipper DO THAT?!

Still, although there isn't too much mention of him in the announcement from Isabelle above, we're pretty sure he's going to be bouncing his way back to your island for Bunny Day.

Egg hunting will return for Bunny Day 2021, offering some fun rewards for finding them.

Below, we have a list of all the different types of Bunny Day egg in Animal crossing:

New Items


What would an event be without new items? Well, an event with no items I guess.

But, Animal Crossing isn't the sort of game to let players down so of course new items will be on offer.
