LATEST - New Animal Crossing Event Details!
Following the new Animal Crossing title update, we have a few more details about the upcoming events for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. They're not Bunny Day, but it's something!
May Day (April 29 - May 7): Use your May Day Ticket and tour a rather interesting island between April 29 - May 7. These tickets are single-use, so plan your trip accordingly. Have a good flight!

After talking to Blathers and receiving a special stamp card, players can enjoy viewing fish, insects, fossils, and art while collecting stamps at the various museum exhibits.
Wedding Season (June 1 – June 30): Since Reese and Cyrus got married in the month of June, it’s now their tradition to take wedding photos on Harvey’s Island every June. Meet up with them on the island and help take adorable photos. A few decorations go a long way!

New Animal Crossing Update Patch Notes
The latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons Title Update is a bit of a weird one. It actually doesn't do a whole lot directly, but it seems as though it's acting as a bit of a base for future updates.
For example, Nintendo mentions May Day (which is a few days away) but doesn't actually tell us anything about the event in question?
Annoyingly, Nintendo Support isn't too specific about what's coming but here's the full Patch Notes anyway:
- The May Day, International Museum Day, and “wedding season” seasonal events have been updated.
- It’s now possible to wake up from a dream by using the – Button.
- The following content has also been added:
- Additional limited-time seasonal items from Nook Shopping.
- Fixed an issue where the player could build a fence on the pier when standing on top of a custom design placed on the ground.
- Other adjustments and corrections were made to improve the game play experience.
Yeah. We know. That's it? It isn't exactly a "deep dive" into the update.
How To Update Animal Crossing
It's actually really simple to update your games on Nintendo Switch and they should be automatically downloaded as and when.

- Connect the Nintendo Switch console to the internet.
- Return to the HOME Menu and launch the game.
