July 2021 Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update is Small, but More Promised

animal crossing new horizons update

Nintendo finally announced another Animal Crossing: New Horizons update for July 2021. However, it’s a rather anticlimactic one. The company took to Twitter to confirm the next update will arrive on July 29, 2021. However, it only promised seasonal items and fireworks. It then followed the statement with a promise of more free items later in 2021.

Nintendo didn’t mention anything about what the new seasonal items in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update might be. It also didn’t say if these fireworks shows coming would be in any way different from the July 2020 update that initially introduced fireworks. (That update also added the Dream Suite and Island Backups.)

As for the additional Animal Crossing: New Horizons free content, the company didn’t mention much. In its statement, it only said more would arrive “later this year.” It also didn’t note if that would appear in one update, or in multiple, scattered updates.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch, and an update will appear on July 29, 2021.
