Animal Crossing: New Horizons' April Event And Update Detailed

Following the Easter-inspired event, a new update in April will add in an event for Earth Day.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons has just gotten a new 1.1.1 update, but it's actually last week's 1.1.0 update that enabled an upcoming event. As detailed in the surprise Nintendo Direct Mini broadcast, the first seasonal event is now just days away, with another to come later in April.

Bunny Day, Animal Crossing's equivalent of Easter, runs from April 1-12 and sees Zipper the bunny visit your island. Eggs will be hidden for you to hunt down through means like digging and fishing, and new limited-time items from the egg series will be craftable during the annual event.
