The game title representing the year 2020 is " Atsumare Animal Crossing " ("Atsumori") on Nintendo Switch.
The seasons are linked, and just like in real life, the island is now completely in autumn.
Speaking of events on the island, we seem to be taking a breather after Halloween on October 31, but that's not going to be the case!
It's been announced that on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. a free winter update will be released! This time it's going to be a massive update!
Thanksgiving Day is coming!
Thanksgiving Day will be celebrated on the island on Thursday, November 26, 2020!
Thanksgiving Day is a day for giving thanks for the harvest and eating turkey.
The date seems to be different in the U.S. and Canada, but on the island, it is held on November 26th, which falls on the fourth Thursday of November in the U.S.
On November 26th, the turkey chef " Franklin," who is the one who does the cooking and not the one who is being cooked for, visits the plaza and serves the food.
But it seems he is short on ingredients. Let's help him out!
If you are a newcomer to the island, please note that "Thanksgiving Day" requires the completion of the island's information center building.
Of course, it will be held on Christmas Eve!
Christmas is the most popular holiday of the year.
When I was a child, I used to look forward to the night before Christmas Eve, when Santa would bring presents.
But you are the ones who bring the presents on the island!
On Christmas Eve, Thursday, December 24, 2020, the black-nosed reindeer "Jingle" will come to the island.
He is expected to bring gifts, but he seems to be in some trouble.
If you help him, something good may come out of it.
Some elements of the "Christmas Eve" event require that the island's information center building be completed, so if you have recently started, be careful!
Tanuki Mileage has new redeemable items!
Two new items will be added to the Tanuki Mileage exchange that can be redeemed for miles at the Tanuki Portal.
Naughty! Reaction Guidebook
The new reaction can be created in the "Naui ! Reaction Kits ", which allows you to learn 9 types of reactions when redeemed.
Let's enjoy the young and young-at-heart communication!
More! Hair Arrangement x 6
Six new hairstyles will be added to the " More! Hair Arrangement x 6 " will also be added!
Why don't you change your image with unique styles?
More storage space in your own home!
Those who have built their homes to the maximum and paid off their loans will be able to " increase storage space".
By consulting with Nukichi at the island information center, you can increase your maximum storage from 1,600 to 2,400!
You will be able to store 800 more pieces of furniture and clothes than before, so let's keep on creating new items!
New items added to Tanuki Shopping!
On December 1, 2020 (Tuesday ), when it is winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere, new seasonal items will be added to Tanuki Shopping!
In the Northern Hemisphere, "Mafuyu's Sweater" and "Aurora's Wallpaper" will be available.
In the Southern Hemisphere, you can order "Sunflower's wreath" and "Sunflower's rug".
In addition, from December 26 (Sat) to December 31 (Thu ), "Sparkling Cider," "12 Grapes," "Berliner," and "Toshikoshi Soba" will be available for the New Year's holiday. Don't miss them!
Pokémon-inspired smartphone designs!
Everyone plays the popular smartphone application " Animal Crossing Pocket Camp " (hereafter referred to as "PokéMori"), right?
It ' s such a big hit that there are people around me who got hooked on Animal Crossing through Pokémori for the first time and ended up purchasing Atsumori. Congratulations!
To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of Pokémori, you will be able to use Pokémori-specific smartphone designs in Atsumori!
It goes perfectly with the new reaction "Pashari"!
To use the Pokémon-spec smartphone design, you will need to prepare your Pokémon device linked to your Nintendo Account and your Nintendo Switch playing Atsumori after the free winter update of Atsumori, and follow the instructions on the official Pokémonori website.
For details, please check the official PokéMori website after the update is complete!
Now you can dream of islands by leaving it up to me!
Yumemi can show you the island of your acquaintance as a dream, but you needed to know the " dream location " to see it in a dream.
With this update, if you select " Leave Dreams to us ", Yumemisama will show you dreams from the islands she has collected, allowing you to easily view dreams even if you do not know the dream number!
If you make your island public, it may be a candidate for someone's "leave it to us"...? If you don't want your island to be seen, make sure to check the settings!
Finally, you can move your saved data!
Since Atsumori data is tied to the Nintendo Switch console, it was not possible to transfer data to a newly purchased Nintendo Switch or other devices.
The "Save Data Restore Service " that was implemented in the summer of 2020 was only to restore data from backups in case of failure or loss, and could not be performed at any time at the user's discretion.
But finally, a save data move function will be implemented!
Two different methods of moving saved data will be available in a format unique to Atsumori!
Moving an Entire Island
You can move an entire island from the Nintendo Switch on which you have been playing Atsumori to another Nintendo Switch.
In order to "move an entire island", you will need to download special software for moving to both the source and destination Nintendo Switch, so an internet environment will be required.
Moving only one player
When multiple players are playing a single Atsumori game, only one player can take his/her home and personal belongings and move to another Nintendo Switch console.
Please note that the "Islander Representative" player cannot perform the "Only Player Can Move" function.
More details and instructions for both moves will be announced in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Our customary update thank-you!
Every time we do a free update, we always receive a nice thank you.
This time, we are offering a " bûche de Noël," which is perfect for the Christmas season!
The name "bûche de Noël" means "Christmas tree " in French, and the design is based on the image of logs and stumps, just like the rest of the cake.
Don't forget to update your status and get into the Christmas spirit!
Tanu Portal now has a "catalog" feature!
The Tanu Portal will be updated in late November 2020, a few days after the free winter update!
After the update, you will be able to search and check items obtained in Atsumori from any device that can access Tanu Portal on your Nintendo Switch Online.
This will be a great way to check your work after you return home, or to check your progress with friends.
We will keep you posted on the date and content of the update!
The next update is scheduled for late January!
The next free update is scheduled for late January 2021!
February is the time of the year when we sow the beans and for some reason I have a craving for chocolate, so it looks like there will be an event of that kind.
But with the year-end and New Year's holidays coming up, this update is a very large volume.
Don't forget the free update on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. and let's finish the year 2020!
