Nintendo have revealed the next seasonal event for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with the ‘Festivale Event’ giving players the chance to collect a colourful assortment of feathers and see some slick dance moves in the process. There’ll also be new reactions, new costumes, and new season items too.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

Beginning 28th January, the new update will add the following features to the game:

Festivale Event – Nothing beats the cold weather more than a colourful Festivale event filled with dancing and flying feathers. On 15th February, Dancer Pavé will arrive to the island’s plaza to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. Only on this day, players can capture colourful feathers floating on the island with their net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be an especially rare sight, so it’s best to catch them and trade them with Pavé. Players can invite friends over to their island or go visit to partake in the festivities together.

New Reactions – To express excitement for the Festivale, the Viva Festivale Reaction Set can be purchased for in-game bells from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny for a limited time and includes the reactions Feelin’ It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.

New costumes – Starting 1st February, Festivale costumes will be available at Able Sisters for a limited time, so that players can get their groove on in style.

Seasonal items – New seasonal items will be available at Nook Shopping. Players can celebrate the sentimental season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets, which will be available for purchase beginning 1st February and running through 14th February. There will also be other items related to Lunar New Year and Big Game Celebration for certain periods during January and February.            

Don’t forget: the previously announced Mario-themed content will be coming to the game in March, with this image teasing its arrival…
