Animal Crossing: New Horizons Free Summer Update Wave 2 Coming on July 30
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Nintendo™ Switch – US, EU, AU & JAPAN
After you swim in the oceans, the second summer free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming very soon. The upcoming summer update wave 2 includes a fireworks show, dreaming, and an island backup service. Take some time to relax with the fireworks for your island getaway on July 30! The next free update will be in Autumn!
Check out the trailer and the full features below via Nintendo.
- Fireworks Shows – Enjoy atmospheric fireworks lighting up the sky above your island every Sunday in August at 7 p.m. Get in the spirit by redeeming Bells for raffle tickets in the plaza to get various festive items that you can use. Put your personal spin on the fireworks display by using your own custom design pattern to see it shot in the air as a firework in the sky!
- Dreaming – You can now choose to take a nap in any bed placed in your home.** While dozing off, you may find yourself in a strange realm where you’ll be greeted by Luna. Luna offers visits to other islands as a dream, and with her help, you can share your island as a dream with others too.*** She will grant those who share their island a “Dream Address” which players can exchange and use to visit each other’s island in a dream. In dreams, nothing is permanent because nothing you do is saved, so explore to your heart’s content.
- Island Backup & Restoration Service – Nintendo Switch Online members can enable the new island backup service, which automatically uploads island and user save data to the internet at certain times. If your Nintendo Switch system is lost or damaged, you may be able to recover your island paradise as long as you’ve enabled island backup. In the event of loss or damage, contact Nintendo Consumer Support about restoring the island and user save data on your new or repaired Nintendo Switch system. After your island data and individual player data is restored, you can get back to building your island community!
