The latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons update is now available for download on Nintendo Switch! It’s been several months since we’ve received a patch, and the previous one only updated the May Day event and added a few new Nook Shopping items. Unfortunately, that’s the case here too; tonight’s update adds a few new items to the August Fireworks Show (including cotton candy and popsicles) and the Nook Shopping catalog (including the cucumber horse and eggplant cow).
This update contains next to nothing new for players, then, but there is a bit of good news — Nintendo’s official Twitter account has confirmed that “more free content … is currently in development for later this year”. Here’s hoping that whatever free content they’re talking about winds up being more significant than Nook Shopping items!
