Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Fall Free update confirmed

Nintendo announced the second Summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which adds a few more new features to the game.

At the very end of the trailer, the company also confirmed that the next free update will arrive in Fall. As seen in the teaser above, it will presumably include a Halloween event featuring the Pumpkin headed character Jack.

Farming and cooking?

While Nintendo hasn’t detailed the fall update, the promotional image features a pumpkin, an obvious clue of a Halloween theme. This update could also include new features themed around the fall harvest, like farming and cooking.

All of the vegetables found in the recent datamine are eaten around the end of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and data for growing pumpkins was found in the game all the way back in April.
