Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ fall update is almost here, Nintendo finally showed it off this morning in a new trailer. This latest free update will be out this upcoming September 30th, it contains lots of fall and Halloween fun.

Jack will be visiting too and if you give him lollipops or candy, you get special rewards. Not only that, but there will be some new Halloween themed reactions you can learn as well. Speaking of new reactions, Nintendo will be updating the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app so you can easily pull up and use reactions in the game. Along with the app update is a new feature that will be added to New Horizons the game itself which lets you revisit your favorite dream islands from a list of dreams you’ve already visited.
