It’s time to experience the island carnival life! This free update is about to get a whole lot more colourful and feather-filled with new seasonal items and more. There is also a cheeky sneak peek at a very special collaboration and we can’t wait for the update to arrive!
Festivale (15th February)
Feel the heat with the colourful Festivale event! On 15th February, Dancer Pavé will arrive to the island’s plaza to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit.
Only on this day, players will be able to capture colourful feathers floating on the island with their net and trade them with Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be an especially rare sight, so it’s best to catch them and trade them with Pavé. Players can invite friends over to their island or go visit to partake in the festivities together.
New Reactions and costumes
To express excitement for the Festivale, the Viva Festivale Reaction Set can be purchased for in-game bells from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny for a limited time and includes the reactions Feelin’ It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.
Starting 1st February, Festivale costumes will be available at Able Sisters for a limited time, so that players can get their groove on in style.
New seasonal items will be available at Nook Shopping. Players can celebrate the sentimental season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets, which will be available for purchase beginning 1st February and running through 14th February. There will also be other items related to Lunar New Year and Big Game Celebration for certain periods during January and February.
As for the special collaboration that is planned in March, Animal Crossing partners up with Sanrio creating a Collaboration Pack that will be available for purchase at select retailers and online across Australia and New Zealand! The Pack contains all six amiibo cards from this unique Sanrio Collaboration Series. These vibrantly designed amiibo cards can be used in compatible games. Further details will be revealed soon.
As if this isn’t enough, another exciting update is planned for March and as we see at the end of the video, there are two icons from Super Mario and we can’t help but guess, could it be…..?
