For starters, to get into the Halloween spirit, you’ll be able to grow and harvest pumpkins. These will be used to create various themed items, including pumpkin lights and scarecrows.
Meanwhile, the Able Sisters will stock new costumes for purchase. For an extra scary look, body paint and coloured eye contacts will also available for purchase using Nook Miles.
Once it hits 5 p.m. on October 31, the Halloween festivities truly begin. Candy saved up beforehand can be given to residents, or to Jack, the self proclaimed “czar of Halloween.” Hanging out with villagers during Halloween will also net you some new reactions.
Outside of the holiday event, there are some minor changes to the dream system and the NookLink app. Previously viewed dreams can now be re-accessed through a quick list, and the NookLink app will allow easier access to reactions.
The Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update launches September 30, letting you prepare your best Halloween costumes in advance.
