Upcoming Updates

Easter Event To Be Held Again

Yearly events will now be available again after the March update. Some of these events couldn't be re-experienced even if you used Time Travel, but this seems to be set to change. New furniture is also set to be added.

Repetition Of Seasonal Events?

Given that Easter is being held again, we can safely assume that other seasonal events (which could only be experienced in real-time) will be re-held in 2021!

More Events Might Be Added


All of the characters and events originally scheduled to be added to the game are now in. That being said, there are plenty of other characters from previous AC games which haven't been implemented as of yet. Perhaps we can expect them to be added this year?

How To Update Your Game

Press The "+" Button On The Home Screen


Your game will automatically update as long as you're connected to the internet, though it may take a while before the download actually starts. If you want to manually check for game updates, select ACNH on your Switch's home screen and press the "+" button. Then go to Software Updates and download it manually.

Try Restarting Your Switch

If the game doesn't seem to be updating, it can be worth it to just turn your Switch device off and on. Hold the power button and select restart to do this.

Match Versions With Local Users


If you don't currently have an internet connection, it's actually possible to receive the latest software from another Switch device that has it already installed. Select the bottom option in the Software Update tab to do this!
