Animal Crossing New Horizons April Update Brings Back May Day, Museum Day, Wedding Season; and More

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Nintendo have announced the April update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons; bringing back May Day, Museum Day, and Wedding Season.

The update includes the revival of several late April and May events last year. Once again (from April 29th to May 7) users can use their May Day ticket to access a maze-based island. Those who solve the puzzle will get rewards from a familiar face.

Museum Day is also back from May 18th to May 31st. Players can gather stamps around the museum, unlocking goodies for completing a set within a wing. This also grants access to the art gallery’s Stamp Rally for players who had not yet unlocked it at the time of the original event.

It is not clear at this time if there will be new rewards for those who have already completed the above event. One event that will be getting new item is Reese’ and Cyrus’ Wedding Season.

From June 1st to 30th features the alpaca couple renewing their vows once again, and rewarding players for wedding photos to the theme they ask for each day. New Seasonal Items will also be available, including a wedding bell, ring on a pillow, door-plate, and Japanese Shinto wedding clothes.

Other Season items include those for Mother’s Day, (and possibly Father’s Day based on the images), and Cheese Rolling. The update launches April 28th. You can find the images for the update below.

Escape to Your Personal Island Paradise


Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create, and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. You can hunt down insects at the crack of dawn, decorate your paradise throughout the day, or enjoy sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round.

Show off your island utopia to family and friends—or pack your bags and visit theirs. Whether playing online* or with others beside you**, island living is even better when you can share it. Even without hopping on a flight, you’ll meet a cast of charming animal residents bursting with personality. Friendly faces like Tom Nook and Isabelle will lend their services and happily help you grow your budding community. Escape to your island getaway—however, whenever, and wherever you want.

• Build your community from scratch on a deserted island brimming with possibility
• Create your personal getaway and customize your character, home, decorations, and even the landscape itself
