Animal Crossing: New Horizons update: Museum Art Gallery, Garden Center and Redd coming April 23

Animal Crossing: New HorizonsThe next update arrives on Thursday, April 23 and will add new merchants and an expanded museum, Nintendo confirmed on Tuesday morning. New additions include Leif, the sloth Animal Crossing fans will remember Animal Crossing: New Leafwho will run a garden stand, and Redd, the fox/art dealer who sells paintings, sculptures and furniture of sometimes dubious authenticity.

Leif’s Garden Shop will sell shrubs and flower seeds. He will visit the place of the island similar to Kicks, the seller of shoes and bags. Redd (aka Jolly Redd) will also occasionally come to the island via players’ “Secret Beaches” to sell in-game artwork, as well as unique furniture. Players can donate Redd’s works to the Blathers’ museum, which will expand to include an art gallery.

On April 23, through May 4, a Nature Day event will kick off at Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The event will feature special Nook Miles challenges focused on nature-inspired objectives, such as planting trees and watering flowers, Nintendo said.

Three other events are confirmed for Animal Crossing: New Horizonswith the following details from Nintendo:

  • May Day visit (May 1-7) – During the first week of May, players can use a one-time May Day ticket at the island airport to depart for a limited-time visit to an island that looks different from the usual visits to the mysterious islands. A special visitor who seems familiar to you might also be there…
  • International Museum Day (May 18-31) – To celebrate International Museum Day, players can participate in a stamp rally. After receiving a special stamp card, players can admire fish, bugs, and fossils while collecting stamps from the museum’s various exhibits to earn an in-game reward.
  • wedding season (June 1-30) – During a wedding-themed month of June, players can visit Harvey’s Island to meet married couple Reese and Cyrus, as well as plan and take anniversary photos with them in the wedding photo studio. Players will receive wedding-themed items as a token of gratitude.
