A new Animal Crossing: New Horizons update will arrive July 29, Nintendo said in a new tweet from their account. This new update, which will bring fireworks and seasonal items to the popular game, comes after limited updates and content in the past few months. In addition, Nintendo hinted that new content for the game is arriving later in the year, some welcome news for many Animal Crossing fans.

Animal Crossing Update Coming Soon, According to Nintendo Tweet

The new update comes as many fans have wondered why the game is lacking in new content. With the game's launch in March 2020, plenty of new content was arriving, but in 2021, it seems that newer items and events have been slower to make their way to folks' islands. Nintendo hasn't said what the new content will entail, or when it will arrive this year, but even the vaguest of details have the Animal Crossing community excited.

Since its launch back in 2020, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become one of the Nintendo Switch's best-selling games, and amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, brought people some fun in a time where there seemed very little to be hopeful about.

Back when he was running in the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden even jumped in, using the game to organize potential voters. Right now, with July nearing its end, players can check out what fish may be leaving islands soon, as well as their insect counterparts.
