The Mario update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is just around the corner. Originally scheduled for March, and the update will come instead on February 25. While this may be a minor observation for many, it actually means so much more. Fortunately, all of this will only make ACNH fans extremely happy.
SwitchForce on YouTube feels that Nintendo has put a lot of emphasis on determining the release date for upcoming updates. The reason behind this is the anniversary of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of the most successful games on Nintendo completes one year of launch, and the company will provide something exciting to the fans.
Animal Crossing New Horizons can celebrate its anniversary with villagers in Sanrio
Fans may remember the Sanrio cards Nintendo teased a while ago. The launch of the cards is March 26, six days after ACNH’s anniversary. SwitchForce believes this is not accidental. This is actually the perfect opportunity for Nintendo to introduce major changes to the game for a so-called ‘Season Two’.
He feels that Nintendo deliberately avoided making the Mario update a big one. Apart from some items and clothing, not much comes with the February 25 update. Fans obviously get the cool drain pipe function, but it’s not as good as new villagers.
The idea behind keeping the Mario update simple would be to save big changes for an upcoming anniversary update. With the upcoming update marked 1.8, Switch believes that the March update will finally go over to 2.0. This update will introduce all Sanrio villagers to the card collection set for launch next month.
Throwback to the time fans thought Brewster would return to ACNH
Most of the content that computer processors leaked has already made its way to the game. However, an update that everyone was enthusiastically waiting for was the arrival of Brewster, our favorite pigeon, to the game. The long wait for Brewster to set foot on our islands may finally come to an end.
The anniversary update would be the perfect opportunity for Nintendo to add another popular villager from previous editions of the game. It could add new elements to the game, such as a cafe for Brewster to run if Nintendo finally decides to add him to the game.
This is just one of the many assumptions about how Nintendo wants to end a fantastic year for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game has contributed immensely to the success of the Nintendo Switch. It certainly deserves an explosion for the anniversary.
