At first I didn’t think this Nintendo Download was going to happen today. My usual resource, Nintendo’s official press room, inexplicably didn’t have the most up to date information. But thanks to the kind help from Tech-Gaming, I found the info that I needed. Which just goes to show you that in times like this, we need to rely on each other! That said, it’s time for a last minute Nintendo Download.
First off, let’s begin the Nintendo Download with a new Easter themed event!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bunny Day Event – Hippity skippity, hoppity ho! Just in time for the season, the bright Zipper T Bunny has begun visiting islands for a limited time. The energetic visitor will be hiding eggs around islands that allow residents to create special items, including furniture, flooring, décor and accessories. There are only a few more days left to find those eggs before the event ends on April 12, so get hopping and craft those seasonal DIY projects! Hop-hop-hooray!
