Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s spooky Halloween update is out now
Last week, Nintendo announced a spoOoOoky new update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and it’s now out right now.
The update brings a few new features, such as new skin colours, pumpkin-farming, a bunch of spooky new outfits, all to celebrate the spookiest day of the year. It also brings a new update to the Nintendo Switch Online applet Nooklink, adding the ability to emote from your phone instead of the awkward in-game menu. Oh, and there’s plenty of candy.
