Festivale Event and More Come to Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Free This Week


It’s almost time for another free update to light up the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This one launches on January 28, bringing with it the colorful Festivale event along with new Reactions, new clothing, and special seasonal items at the Nook Stop. 



Here are all the details from Nintendo:


  • Festivale Event – Feel the heat with the colorful Festivale event filled with dancing and flying feathers! On Feb. 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive to your island’s plaza** to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. On the day of the event you can capture colorful feathers floating on your island with your net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be an especially rare sight, so be sure to catch them and trade them with Pavé. Invite friends over to your island or visit theirs to partake in the festivities together.***
  • New Reactions – If you want to express your excitement for Festivale, you’ll now have a range of new Reactions to choose from. The Viva Festival Reaction Set can be purchased with in-game Bells from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny for a limited time and includes Feelin’ It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.
  • New Clothing  Starting Feb. 1, Festivale clothing will be available at the Able Sisters shop for a limited time. Now you can get your Festivale groove on in style with these fashionable looks!
  • Seasonal Items – Make sure to keep an eye out for seasonal items at the Nook Stop in Resident Services and through Nook Shopping. Celebrate the sentimental season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets, which will be available for purchase beginning Feb. 1 and running through Feb. 14. There will also be other items related to Groundhog Day and Big Game Celebration available for certain periods during January and February!


Note that Resident Services has to have been upgraded for the arrival of Dancer Pavé, and you’ll need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to take advantage of the online features. 



Next up for the series is an Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack, which will be available to buy exclusively at Target stores across the United States. $5.99 gets you all six amiibo cards from the collab, and further details will be revealed in the future. 


There’s also another Animal Crossing: New Horizons update planned for March, so stay tuned for more announcements as we somehow already barrel toward the one-year anniversary of the game’s release.
