Animal Crossing Autumn Update Details

The long awaited autumn update is arriving on the 30th of September and with it some spoopy new features! 🎃

Halloween is around the corner, so now’s the perfect time to start preparing. Nook’s Cranny will start selling candy, for just 120 Bells, for you to share on Halloween.

And you can actually grow pumpkins now! These can be used as building materials for DIY recipes. I think stems for these will be for sale at Nook’s as well (the new leafy thing for 280 bells in the previous image).

The spoopy Halloween festival starts on the 31st of October from 5pm and will last till midnight. And Jack will be making his glorious return!

The Nookling app will be getting an update as well, so you’ll be able to use Reactions from your phone. This was demonstrated with a new Reaction called Haunt.

Final bit of information is that the next update is planned for late November, with an image of Franklin and Jingle, hinting at the Harvest Festival and Toy Day. So lots to look forward to!


Nintendo also sent out a tweet that users who download the autumn update will also receive a Ring Con item from Ring Fit Adventure.

Kirby Fighters 2 is Here!

After the leak it was apparent this game would be launching soon. And it did! Following a shadow drop last night the game is now available for everyone to download and play. So, let’s take a look at what’s in store for us.

Apart from playing solo you’ll be able to connect locally with up to three friends on one console or across multiple consoles using local wireless or online play. Or challenge yourself in the Buddy Fighters Tower!

Like previous games Kirby can copy unique abilities. And there’s a new addition to that list: Wrestler, which let’s you slam opponents. Show them who owns the arena!

Playing earns you Fighter Points, which can be used to unlock new Copy Abilities, new stages to fight on, special item cards for use in the Buddy Fighters Tower or even alternative costumes.

And if your Nintendo Switch console has a save file for Super Kirby Clash or Kirby Star Allies on it, you can unlock unique alternative costumes to use in Kirby Fighters 2.
