Animal Crossing: New Horizons received an injection of new items Friday to celebrate the Lunar New Year. These items draw from Chinese and Korean traditions around the Lunar New Year, and will be available in-game only for a limited time.

The three new items available to order in Nook's Shopping Seasonal menu are the Lunar New Year Decoration (2,000 Bells), the Lucky Red Envelope (500 Bells) and the Bokjumeoni Lucky Pouch (500 Bells).

The Lunar New Year Decoration is a furniture item players can hang on their walls, while the other two items can function the same way Wrapping Paper does. Players can wrap up Bells or coins and hold them in packages, then gift them to the villagers of their choice.

Exactly when the Lunar New Year items will exit the shop hasn't been announced, but the next Animal Crossing seasonal event, the Carnival-style Festivale, kicks off Monday.
