The next update for Animal Crossing New Horizons has been announced by Nintendo for April 28, bringing a trio of returning holidays to celebrate across May and June. Curiously the official tweet from Animal Crossing about the update mentions “new wrinkles” involving these events, but no new details are specified in the announcement.
First up is the May Day celebration, starting April 29 and ending May 7. Players will receive a May Day ticket that gives them one-time access to a “rather interesting island.” Nintendo did not clarify if this island is the same as the one from last year’s May Day Maze, but the teaser image shows Rover, the train-riding cat from the original Animal Crossing, will be returning.
Next is the International Museum Day event taking place May 18 to May 31. Upon visiting the museum and talking to Blathers, players can receive a stamp card that can be filled out by viewing exhibits. All four wings of the museum–insects, fish, fossils and art–will contain unique stamps to collect throughout the event.
