The next update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been announced. 

On the Animal Crossing: New Horizons' website, a new update for the game was announced. The update will be available on March 18th. The update will be celebrating the game's first anniversary, and will grant players a special item. A 1st Anniversary Cake will be sent to player's in-game mailbox after the update is installed. The update will also add a number of seasonal items. Between March 26th and April 1st, players will be able to order the whoopie cushion just in time for April Fool's Day. Gamers can also prep for the prom season with themed fashion items. These items will be available at the Able Sister's shop from April 1st to 30th. Prom themed items can also be purchased from Nook Shopping during that period. These items include a prom wall and prom flooring. 

The new update will also include an upgrade to the Custom Design app on player's NookPhones. Gamers can buy the upgrade using their Nook Miles at the Nook Stop in Resident Services. The upgrade will include more features than before, including the ability to customize umbrellas, small flags, uchiwa, and photo stands. Custom Design slots will be increased by 50 when the upgrade is purchased. Players will also be able to get the Custom Design Portal from Nook Stop, adding the feature from the Able Sister's store to their NookPhone. This will allow them to customize wherever they are at. 

In addition to the update, a new feature is coming to New Horizons: the Island Tour Creator. This new feature will drop on March 23rd, and will be available until the end of the year. The Island Tour Creator allows players to use screenshots and footage captured in New Horizons to create a poster and trailer for their island. This will allow players to share their favorite spots on their islands, and show off what makes their island special. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
