NookLink App Updated With New Reactions Feature In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Great For Making Videos

As promised last month, the NookLink smartphone app for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has just been updated to add a brand new feature helping make in-game communication easier than before!

The new feature was announced alongside the Fall Halloween Update last month, yet wasn’t tied directly to the game update as NookLink is a separate web service inside of the Nintendo Switch Online application. It’s now available to enjoy now after a short waiting period though!

Inside of the NookLink app, you can now easily access and use Reactions / Emotes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons without opening up the in-game reactions menu. This integrates into the existing keyboard chat feature that NookLink offers, with Reactions now able to be used right alongside chat.

All of your unlocked Reactions are show on screen in a simple scrollable list with in-game usage as simple as double tapping one of the icons on your phone. Even better, a row of 5 most recently used Reactions sits at the top of the screen allowing for fast access to your favorites.

The timing of this new NookLink feature is timed perfectly with two new Halloween themed reactions added in the Fall Halloween Update — Haunt and Scare! These can be unlocked during the upcoming Halloween Event held on October 31st, although it’s possible to time travel early right now.

One interesting aspect of this new Reactions feature though that we didn’t expect is the brand new possibilities opened for recording in-game video clips. Previously, to use reactions for a fun moment in a video recording, there was no way to avoid opening up the interface even if just for a brief second.

Thanks to the new NookLink feature though, it’s now possible to use multiple different reactions and emotes in a video recording without ever opening the interface and revealing it in your clip — just use the app! We’ve recorded a very short (and lame) video clip below as an example:

There’s no doubt that we’ll see clever fans making great use of this new NookLink Reactions option for both genuine social purposes and funny Animal Crossing video creation soon!

If you’re not already familiar with NookLink, the companion application available on both iOS and Android offers a number of other handy Animal Crossing: New Horizons features such as viewing your Passport, scanning QR Code patterns, messaging Best Friends, and reading statistics about your Dream Address!

Image: Nintendo EPD/Nintendo via Polygon

Typing on the Nintendo Switch is a bit fiddly. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your character will scrunch its face into something akin to the thinking face emoji while the keyboard is open. It’s a physical cue to your pals that you’re trying to talk to them — similar to when your phone is out, which is a cue that you’re probably distracted. Typing, whether you’re using a finger or your Joy-Cons, still takes a while. Most of the time, I would rather just not chat. But then, I remembered NookLink.

NookLink is an application within the Nintendo Switch Online app for iOS and Android smartphones. It’s got a number of different features, but the most useful one — for me, at least — is the chat functionality. You can use NookLink to chat through voice or text, and it’s a lot more capable than the in-game keyboard.

Here’s how to set it up.

Image: Nintendo via Polygon

First, you’ll need to download the Nintendo Switch Online app from your phone’s app store. Once it’s opened and you’re signed in, select Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the “Game-Specific Services” list. If it’s the first time you’ve opened the app, you’ll need to complete a few steps to get it connected to your game.

  1. Open up Animal Crossing: New Horizons to its title screen
  2. Hit the minus button (-) on the Nintendo Switch (top left corner)
  3. Select “NookLink Settings” and follow Tom Nook’s instructions
  4. Restart the Nintendo Switch Online app and NookLink

Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll have access to the NookLink app. Open Animal Crossing: New Horizons on your Nintendo Switch. Once you want to chat, select “Keyboards” in NookLink and get texting. Anything you type on there will appear on screen in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One important thing to note is that you’ll only be able to send messages to pals when you’re connected to the internet.

Please, take this gift and chat happily with your friends.

After a few seconds, the game will confirm that the connection is complete.

Back in the app, it’s only a matter of selecting the Animal Crossing: New Horizons option from the main menu. From there, players will see a similar set of options which are the same as the Nook Phone on their island.

  • Passport: Players can view information on their active character and other players they’ve interacted with.
  • Designs: From here, players can scan a QR code from either Animal Crossing: New Leaf or Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Once scanned, the NookLink app will upload it to the player’s game where they can download it and add it to their collection.
  • Keyboard: This allows players to use their phone to type out messages which will appear in-game when chatting with friends.
  • Best Friends: Players can chat with their designated Best Friends without having to be in-game.
  • Reactions: While playing the game, it’s possible to trigger an unlocked reaction with this.
  • Nook Points: Earn Nook Points daily by visiting this option, and then use those points to purchase exclusive items.
  • Settings: Change some of the basic settings of NookLink with this option.

  • You can manipulate the camera location using the directional buttons on the Joy-Con. This allows you to adjust both the horizontal and vertical camera position.
  • The right analog stick can be used to tilt the camera — the same way it functions during regular gameplay.
  • Press R to make your villager look at the camera.
  • If you’ve unlocked Reactions, you can use ZR to access these while in Photo Mode.
  • You can zoom in on the action by using the X and Y buttons.
  • When you’re happy with your setup, press the plus sign (+) to capture the image. This will remove all UI graphics, allowing you to take clean screenshots of your Animal Crossing town.

Upgrade to the Pro Camera

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ 2.0 update, Nintendo brought additional functionality to the basic camera app. Before you can use the powerful feature, you’ll first have to unlock it by following these steps:

  • Ensure your software is up to date.
  • Load your game and head over to the Town Hall.
  • Access the Nook Stop Terminal.
  • Redeem your Nook Miles for the Pro Camera App (1,500 Miles).
  • Your Camera App will automatically update to the Pro Camera App.

With your new Pro Camera, there are two features you’ll want to explore:

  • Handheld Mode: Walk around in first-person and snap photos.
  • Tripod: Place the camera on a tripod, which allows you to walk into your close-up photos.

Accessing these new features is simple — just press the “–” button on your Joy-Con to toggle through the available viewing modes.

Photopia is a robust photo studio

If you’re looking for a bit more control over your photoshoots, head on over to Harv’s Island and check out Photopia. Harv’s Island becomes accessible after you meet Harvey, who will arrive on your island once you’ve invited three residents to live in your town. After meeting them, head on over to Dodo Airlines to book a flight to his home.

Here, you’ll still have access to the same nifty camera app, but you can also invite other villagers, pose them, and deck them out in all sorts of different outfits. Plus, any villager you invite to the island will then pose for their own pictures — which will become available for purchase in the form of posters at your local Nook Stop. You can also add your own furniture to Photopia during each shooting, giving you incredible control over each picture.

Using NookLink on your phone will allow you to access more features in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Animal Crossing titles are social games in many ways. They allow players to share and view each other’s creations and are altogether upbeat ways to spend time with others. Nintendo is making it easier for online New Horizons players to customize their villages and communicate with each other by integrating NookLink within the Nintendo Switch Online app for smartphones.

Using this service, players can send messages in-game, import custom designs from two 3DS games, manage multiplayer options, and more. Here’s a breakdown of each of the different features found within NookLink.

Fly off to a deserted island and then harvest, craft, and befriend your way into turning it into the perfect get-a-way location. There are plenty of new features and events to excite new and veteran fans alike.

Everything to know about NookLink

When does NookLink release?

This real-life smartphone app is available right now. You’ll need to download the Nintendo Switch Online app for iOS or Android and then select the Animal Crossing: New Horizons button upon opening it.

What can I do with NookLink?

NookLink has five functions: Passport, Custom Design, Chat Keyboard, Best Friend, and Settings. Here’s what each of these things can do:

Passport

Within New Horizons itself, the NookPhone also features a Passport app which allows you to visit other islands. However, within NookLink, Passport allows you to customize what your main character’s passport looks like. This is basically an ID card that displays your birthday, the name of your island, your custom design creator ID, Dream Address, and other information about you. You can type in a custom phrase or greeting, or give yourself a title.

Custom Design

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphoneHow to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

Players who have the Animal Crossing: New Leaf or Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer games on 3DS can create designs for clothing and other things. Once a design has been created, players can then use the NookLink app to scan QR codes on the 3DS and bring their designs into New Horizons. That way you can design clothing and bedding designs for your island.

Chat Keyboard

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

Considering that Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows online players to visit each other’s islands it makes sense that Nintendo would provide a way for people to communicate with each other. Using the Chat Keyboard players can type in messages and chat with others they play with. Additionally, players can also use this app to voice chat with one another.

Best Friend

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

New Horizons allows players to visit each other’s islands. However, tool limitations are placed on visitors so they can’t run off with all your materials and goodies. If you mark someone as a best friend, then that player can use all of their tools while visiting your island. That way you two can fully enjoy everything your get-a-way has to offer together.

The Best Friend section of NookLink allows you to quickly message specific friends individualls or send a massive text to anyone online.

Reactions update

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

Nintendo has revealed that NookLink will be getting an update sometime in “early October.” This will add a Reactions tab to the NookLink service. Using this tool, players can easily select one of the reactions they’ve unlocked in game to make their character react accordingly. I’m super excited for this since it will make it a whole lot easier for me to react to my friends when we’re visiting each other’s islands.

How to use Reactions in NookLink

  1. To use Reactions in NookLink, you’ll first need to open the Nintendo app. If you haven’t downloaded the app to your phone yet, continue to the next section below and then return to these steps.
  2. Select Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
  3. Select the Reactions button in the bottom right corner.
  4. You’ll now see the list of Reactions you’ve unlocked. Tap the Reaction you want to use.
  5. Press Send.

How do I get NookLink on my smartphone?

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

First off, you will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to use NookLink with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Once that’s done, you’ll need to download the Nintendo Switch Online app for your iOS or Android device.

Upon opening the Nintendo Switch Online app on your smartphone, you can tap on NookLink under the Game-Specific Services section to launch these New Horizons features.

You will then need to turn to your Nintendo Switch. With Animal Crossing: New Horizons running, press the – button to bring up the title screen. The Nintendo Switch and app will connect and then you’ll be able to use NookLink.

Organize and clean up your island with more storage! As long as you’re running version 1.6.0 or higher of Animal Crossing: New Horizons , you can increase the capacity of your home and upgrade your storage to accommodate more items. Just speak to Tom Nook at Resident Services.

Upgrade Your Storage in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

After you’ve updated to patch 1.6.0 (or higher) and launched Animal Crossing: New Horizons , check your mailbox. You’ll see a notice from Tom Nook informing you about the next possible upgrade to your home: extra storage!

If you have random items on the floor of your home or around your island, and you haven’t yet figured out where to store it all, this update is for you. Just head to the Resident Services building and talk to Tom Nook about a house upgrade.

He’ll greet you as soon as you walk in. If you’d like to learn more about the new storage upgrade, approach his desk, and then press A on your right Joy-Con controller to hop on the stool.

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

Choose “About My Home,” and then select “Expand My Storage.” Keep in mind, you’ll first have to upgrade your home to its highest point. After you fully expand your home and pay off all your loans with Tom Nook, you can begin this upgrade. It expands storage in your home from 1,600 pieces to 2,400.

How to use reactions in ‘animal crossing new horizons’ from your smartphone

Tom Nook will explain that you’ll have to pay this fee upfront and he cannot offer you any loans. If you have the correct amount of Bells (you’ll need 500,000 of the in-game currency), select “Yes, Let’s Do It!”

Since this payment is required immediately, you’ll need to have 500,00 Bells in your inventory when you talk to Tom Nook. If you don’t, you can access the ABD machine in Resident Services and withdraw the correct amount for your pockets, and then go speak to him again.

The expansion of your home will be available the next day, and you’ll be able to start transferring more items to your storage.

House Upgrades in Animal Crossing New: Horizons

When you first start Animal Crossing: New Horizons , you have nothing but a tent on your new, private island. Tom Nook also asks you to pay 5,000 Nook Miles to cover your trip and tent. You can complete certain tasks to accumulate the Nook Miles you need to pay off your debt.

Eventually, your hard work will pay off—Tom Nook will build a house for you. You will, however, have to take out a very large loan from him for that, and every house upgrade thereafter.

The first loan is for 98,000 Bells. Once you pay off that first loan, you can upgrade and take out a new one. These upgrades are costly and require you to spend a lot of time accumulating funds , but you get more room and customizations with every upgrade.

Here are the costs for the rest of the house upgrades in Animal Crossing: New Horizons:

  • 198,000 Bells
  • 348,000 Bells
  • 548,000 Bells
  • 758,000 Bells
  • 1,248,000 Bells
  • 2,498,000 Bells
  • 500,00 Bells (storage upgrade)

With so many extra storage slots, it’s even easier to hoard every outfit, DIY material, and decoration you come across in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

To break it down in a bit more detail then.

Turkey Day

Thanksgiving in America means Turkey Day in Animal Crossing! Superchef Frankin will be on hand for a big old gathering in the plaza and you can help him out by gathering all the ingredients he needs to make the event a success!

Toy Day

Christmas is on the way and that means the return of Toy Day is nearly upon us! Holiday furniture recipes will be able to be crafted as the island starts to become more festive (shake decorated trees for the crafting parts for these). From 1st December to 25th December, toys can be purchased from Nooks Cranny while the Able Sisters shop will be stocked with new holiday-themed clothing items.

On the day itself, Christmas Eve, Jingle will be paying your island a visit and if you help him do his rounds, you will get a gift yourself – happy days for all!

Random island dream locations

The fun of nodding off and visiting another island in your dreams is getting a nice update. Soon you will be able to visit random islands as you sleep which will allow "new vistas of inspiration for island customisations".

And the rest

A countdown event to New Year will be starting soon so you can ring in 2021 in style (it's not like we'll be able to go to a big party in the real world this year). Before that though, at Nook Stop, there will be new seasonal items from December 1st and more seasonal items will be available from 26 th and 31 st December.

There will also be a new smartphone design to mark Pocket Camp’s third anniversary.

Amazon, the Internet giant, has just launched a platform similar to Twitch under the name of GameOn, which is dedicated to Android users. Twitch is a leading video game streaming platform where gamers and other internet personalities can build a fan base to watch and support them online, in real time, as they play. The platform was not created by Amazon, but was acquired by Amazon in 2014, thus combining both brands to offer more content and benefits to users.

In April 2020, Twitch introduced the new View Parties feature. This came to allow gamers and their audience to watch Amazon Prime movies together in real time. The Twitch Watch Parties came at an ideal time, as the world was (and is) still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, and full lockdowns were still in place in most countries. The current situation is something that has affected movie theaters and all social commitments. So the introduction of Watch Parties satisfied this type of need in a certain way.

Amazon GameOn arrives as a service similar to Twitch, but for Android games

Now, Amazon has introduced a new platform, apparently not directly related to Twitch, called GameOn. The new Amazon GameOn gives Android gamers the power to share your gaming moments with the GameOn community in the form of short video clips. At the moment no live streaming feature of the game, contrary to what Twitch offers.

The GameOn app is available through the Google Play store for Android users and the Amazon App Store for Amazon tablet users. The app allows the user to record gameplay video similar to the screen recorder that is present on certain Android phones. At the same time, the user can also record your reactions to the game being played, using the phone’s front camera, and this process is called “Facecam”.

The duration of the recording clips is in the range of 30 seconds and 5 minutes. The app also offers the ability to simply edit videos and allows users to easily share your recordings with your community. For interested gamers, Weekly Challenges appear on the GameOn app, and hundreds of free mobile games on Android OS are well connected with it.

Earlier this week, Nintendo announced the next big, free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Tomorrow’s update not only adds holiday events, but new reactions and hairstyles, and much more.

The update will welcome the late Fall and Winter events. The first event is Turkey Day, which takes place on November 26. Franklin visits and hosts a big dinner event in the plaza, which will involve all of the villagers. Players will help Franklin collect ingredients for dishes and possibly receive a special gift if they find everything on the turkey’s menu.

In December, Toy Day will take place on December 24. During the Toy Day event, players will help Jingle deliver gifts and possibly receive a gift of their own.

During the month, players can buy toys from Nook’s Cranny and holiday-themed clothing from the Able Sisters’ shop. The island will begin to celebrate the upcoming holiday with decorations. Shaking snow-covered trees will drop decorations as well.

The last update is on December 31 to celebrate the New Year. Starting at 7 PM, players can meet residents in-game to celebrate fireworks and party to ring in the new year.

Nine new reactions will be added to the game. They are not just the standard emotions, but now players will get more physical by sitting down, doing exercises, yoga, and celebrating. Six new hairstyles are also included in the update. Both can be purchased with Nook Miles.

If players have expanded their home to the max, they can now purchase a major storage upgrade. Players can speak to Tom Nook inside of Resident Services to purchase an expansion for up to 2,400 slots.

The November update also includes visiting random islands in Dreams. Previously, players needed a dream code. Pocket Camp is also getting some attention with a special Pocket Camp smartphone model, but players will need to connect their accounts to gain access.

The last major addition is for “Island and Resident Data Transfers.” With island transfer, players can move their save data, plus their island and residents, to another Nintendo Switch system. This feature is not only for the main Resident Representative, but also for a single islander to transfer their data to another system. The transfer includes the “resident’s name, appearance and equipment, along with your inventory, home, and storage.”

Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. stated:

We’d like to invite everyone to experience the holidays together with family and friends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, along with your island residents bringing their unique seasonal cheer. We’re eager for everyone to discover all the changes arriving to your islands during this holiday season.

The next update in January will bring back Pavé, who hosts the late Winter/early Spring event “Festivale.”

The next free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches tomorrow on November 19.

A próxima transmissão do Direct de ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ já tem data para acontecer. A Nintendo anunciou nesta quarta-feira (6) que o evento será realizado na sexta-feira da próxima semana, dia 15 de outubro, ao meio-dia (horário de Brasília).

A transmissão deve durar 20 minutos. No evento, o principal foco é a atualização de novembro para o jogo. Por enquanto, especula-se que o update no mais novo título de ‘Animal Crissing’ vai introduzir o Brewster, algo aguardado pelos fãs, e uma cafeteria, além do museu do jogo.

Leia mais:

Brewster é o gerente do café Roost. Ele apareceu pela primeira vez em ‘Animal Crossing Wild World’ e virou um dos ídolos da comunidade do jogo. Em ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’, o café ganhou o próprio prédio, mas sempre encontrado anexado ao museu de Blathers. As perspectivas animam os usuários do game.

The #AnimalCrossing: New Horizons Direct will air on Oct. 15 at 7am PT! Tune in for roughly 20 minutes of information about the content coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in November. #ACNH pic.twitter.com/gc7rfFoxpk

Um teaser trailer já havia sido liberado, mas pouco mostrou sobre a próxima atualização do game de simulação social. É muito provável que os jogadores de ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ precisem construir o café dentro do museu antes de acessar o local. Os NPCs (personagens não jogáveis) vão fazer referência assim que entrar.

O primeiro título da série ‘Animal Crossing’ foi lançado pela Nintendo em 2001. Nele, o jogador é um humano que habita uma comunidade com animais antropomórficos e realiza diversas atividades. A passagem de tempo é contada através do calendário e relógio do console.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife held its first public screening at CinemaCon this week, and the online reactions tease a huge jolt of nostalgia.

Boasting an impressive cast of Paul Rudd (most of your favourite comedies from the last 20 years), Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), director Jason Reitman takes the reins on a franchise originally spearheaded by his father Ivan.

Taking place 30 years on from Ghostbusters II, Coon's single mum Callie and her two kids relocate to a small Oklahoma town where they unearth their connection to the original Ghostbusters.

Following the screening, founder of the Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) Scott Menzel tweeted: "Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the Ghostbusters sequel that I've been waiting all my life to see. It is nostalgia done right.

"A perfect blend of classic Ghostbusters moments with a fresh & unique twist for a whole new generation to enjoy. I got goosebumps."

"Yes, Ghostbusters: Afterlife screened at CinemaCon. Yes I saw it. Yes, it's very good," wrote 411Mania's Jeffrey Harris. "Yes, this is the true Ghostbusters sequel you've been waiting for. It does have a lot of callbacks but it's a nostalgic homage for the franchise."

CinemaBlend's Sean O'Connell added: "Saw #GhostbustersAfterlife at CinemaCon and it's good. A solid continuation of the original two films. Nostalgia for the original, and a strong turn by McKenna Grace as Egon's granddaughter. Paul Rudd gets the best lines. Fans will dig it."

Meanwhile, Bleeding Cool's Kaitlyn Booth reflected: "#GhostbustersAfterlife was really great. As someone who wasn't a massive [fan] of #Ghostbusters I had so much fun even without understanding the references. A ton of heart with a great cast.

"New and old fans are going to love it. Stay through the credits!"

"I was pleasantly surprised by #GhostbustersAfterlife! Really great story and I actually cackled a lot," tweeted Beatrice Verhoeven of TheWrap.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is out in cinemas on November 11, 2021.

With fall already here, it was not long until Nintendo revealed its plans for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In that, the firm announced the Halloween-themed fall update for the March-released title offering an abundance of new experiences unique to the festive holidays of all saints day. The title update will include pumpkins to farm for new crafty recipes, candy to give out, and festive cosmetics to dress up in.

But alongside the content-infused update that is slated to hit Animal Crossing: New Horizons next week, Nintendo has revealed more new in the same trailer that is relevant to the game. That being the upcoming NookLink feature: part of the Nintendo Switch Online app for smart phone devices, players can utilize the new tool to make interacting simpler than ever.

While only showcasing the ability to use in-game Reactions more seamlessly, there is still a bulk of additional things worth noting. Such as scanning custom designs to use on your character or island, see who is playing online, and make chatting less of a challenge with your Apple or Android device.

“With the update, you’ll be able to use your smart device to perform Reactions in the game,” the post reads. “How about trying it out for this occasion to let your island visitors know exactly how you feel about their mischievous tricks and treats?”

Do you plan to adopt the use for the NookLink feature for the Nintendo Switch Online app?

The NookLink update is set to go live sometime in early October; Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo’s life sim ACNH gets new exteriors, haircuts, decorations and more

It’s been a long time coming, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally getting a major update, and it’s way bigger than anything ACNH has gotten so far. Nintendo detailed forthcoming additions in an ACNH-theme Nintendo Direct today.

First, the big stuff, planned for a November 5 rollout: fan-favorite Brewster will make an appearance, as will his venerable café, The Roost, which is also probably the name of the hippest coffee shop in your town. Kapp’n, a turtle who’s allowed to pilot a boat for some reason, is also coming to the game. Harv, the photographer who may or may not be running a cult , is turning his island into a bona fide shopping paradise , too.

But at the end of the day, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is about stuff, so fans should be pleased to hear it’s getting a lot of that, too:

  • Morning yoga.
  • Island ordinances, which controls the behavior of NPCs, including the times of day they’re awake.
  • A bunch of new exterior options that make your house look like a log cabin, a house in an 18th-century German village, and more.
  • An expansion of storage expansion—from 2,400 items to, depending on what you’re willing to splurge on, 3,200, 4,000, or 5,000 items.
  • A ton of new items you can get with Nook Miles, including a lot of furniture, which can be placed in a new storage shed.
  • Cooking is coming to the DIY Recipes app. (Today’s stream showed off Minestrone Soup. Yum?)
  • You can now add lighting and ceiling decorations thanks to something called a Pro Decorating License, which also increases the number of inclines you can install on your island, from 8 to 10.
  • New fence types! Park fencing, block fencing, log fencing, bamboo fencing, and more.
  • An update to the camera mode allows you to take pictures from a first-person perspective, just like every other photo mode ever.
  • You’ll officially be able to wear patterns that were restricted to custom items. You can also use them for floor paper and wallpaper.
  • 11 new hairstyles (including a bowl cut)! 11 new reactions (like stretching and listening to music)!
  • The new Island Life 101 phone app is coming to the in-game smartphone, and looks to basically be a tutorial section.
  • Stayed tuned, as K.K. Slider will release more tunes.
  • Gyroids are coming. If you find gyroid fragments and plant them, they’ll grow into a gyroid overnight.

So, yeah, no wonder it took one metric eternity for Nintendo to get all this stuff (the core of Animal Crossing, remember?) out the door. If you thought Animal Crossing: New Horizons was heading toward the sunset on the horizon, well, next month’s update is any indication, the game’s only getting started.

Sorry if already done, but I scanned through the Japanese patch details to let you know what else to expect:

The update comes out Thursday in Japan at 10am. So the same time as always
