Here Comes Peter Cottontail…

Special events are mainstays in the Animal Crossing series, but never before has Nintendo launched a game so close to a major global holiday, such as Easter. During last Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, a new trailer revealed information on this first New Horizons festival.

Starting April 1st through April 12th, a quirky bunny named Zipper will visit player’s islands to orchestrate an Easter egg hunt. Player will need to dig, fish, and shake a few trees to find each of Zipper’s hiding spots. In exchange for finding eggs, players will be able to craft special pastel-colored clothing and accessories, as shown in the pictures below.

To access the Easter content, players need to simply download the latest Animal Crossing patch starting April 1st.
