Halloween spooks are back in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update

Return of the Jack

Recommended Videos

Do you know what one of my favorite things about Autumn is? Sitting outside a cafe, slowly slipping away on a nice chai latte. Sadly, I haven’t been able to do that this year because of COVID and all the noxious smoke from the California wildfires, and it looks like I won’t be able to do it in Animal Crossing: New Horizon either because Brewster isn’t part of the upcoming Fall update.

But Jack the O’ Lantern is, and he’s bringing a bunch of Halloween goodies with him. The Fall update will get players ready for All Hallows’ Eve with candy they can buy and give to residents, and pumpkins they can grow and craft into new items. I’ll admit it’s been a month since I last visited my island, but I just can’t resist making some jack o’ lanterns to get my town into the spirit.

The Fall update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches on September 30. The next update, which will introduce Jingle and Franklin, is set to arrive in November. Maybe that update will finally upgrade our Nook’s Cranny to a Nook ‘n Go or T&T Mart.
