Time to Dance in Upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

A free update is coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons next month, bringing the dancing celebration of Festivale to islands everywhere. 

Ooh La La Festivale! 

The Carnivale-type event will see Dancer Pavé arrive on the island to show off their sweet dance moves and gift players with some unique seasonal items. Watch this peacock dance their heart out in the trailer below…

Dancer Pavé won’t be the only addition with the Festivale update, below is everything islanders are in store for on February 15, 2021.

Festivale Event – Feel the heat with the colorful Festivale event filled with dancing and flying feathers! On Feb. 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive to your island’s plaza** to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. On the day of the event you can capture colorful feathers floating on your island with your net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be an especially rare sight, so be sure to catch them and trade them with Pavé. Invite friends over to your island or visit theirs to partake in the festivities together.

New Reactions – If you want to express your excitement for Festivale, you’ll now have a range of new Reactions to choose from. The Viva Festival Reaction Set can be purchased with in-game Bells from the shelf at Nook’s Cranny for a limited time and includes Feelin’ It, Let’s Go, Viva and Confetti.

New Clothing – Starting Feb. 1, Festivale clothing will be available at the Able Sisters shop for a limited time. Now you can get your Festivale groove on in style with these fashionable looks!

Seasonal Items – Make sure to keep an eye out for seasonal items at the Nook Stop in Resident Services and through Nook Shopping. Celebrate the sentimental season with chocolate hearts and heart-shaped bouquets, which will be available for purchase beginning Feb. 1 and running through Feb. 14. There will also be other items related to Groundhog Day and Big Game Celebration available for certain periods during January and February!

The next free update will take place in March, but it isn’t the only thing coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons that month. On March 26, the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack will be available for purchase exclusively at Target stores across the U.S. for $5.99.
