Animal Crossing November changes brought some new vegetation and new DYIs. Nintendo’s pandemic blockbuster, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been rolling out changes regularly and November will prove to be a very interesting month for those of you trying to catch bugs, collect items, and celebrate special events! Keep in mind that all of the changes featured below will be focused on the Northern hemisphere where it is currently Fall.
Animal Crossing November Changes Explained
Let’s start with the event. November will feature just one special event (outside of birthdays), the Harvest Festival set to happen sometime later in November. The exact date is unconfirmed thus far, but past games held it on the fourth Thursday of November. This time around that would be on Nov. 26.
Unfortunately, if you missed the fishing tournament last month on Oct. 10 that is the last one for the rest of the year. The next fishing tournament to look forward to will be held on Jan. 9, a long time to wait. Don’t despair though, November also brings with it the start of the mushrooming season! It will last just this one month so make this small time to collect mushrooms count. They will appear periodically near trees so keep an eye out!
Besides the lovely visual changes that accompany the transition to Autumn, there will also be rare leaf drops from trees. These leaves can be used to craft special, seasonal items, and this is the last month they will appear as Winter is set to begin next month. This excellent video by YouTuber "Mayor Mori" goes into the seasonal changes and we can expect to see during the Harvest Festival.
