Custom Design Pro Editor+
One of the most promising features of the latest Animal Crossing update is the upgrade to the NookPhone's design app. With the upgraded app, you can customize photo stands, small flags, uchiwa fans, and umbrellas. Plus, it adds 50 design slots to the Normal Custom Design and Pro Custom Design modes.
Additionally, you can add the Custom Design Portal from the Able Sisters' shop to your in-game NookPhone app that lets you connect to the internet. In other words, you'll be able to search and share custom designs at any time.
You can unlock these features with Nook Miles at the Nook Stop in Resident Services.
Island Tour Creator
A new way to share your island launches on 23 March. The Island Tour Creator is a limited-time web service that lets you use footage and screenshots to create a trailer and poster for your island. Above all, you can share scenes or your favorite spots to highlight what makes your island great.
For now, it's planned to be available till the end of the year. So, make sure to check it out. You can find out more on the official Animal Crossing Twitter.
It's Springtime and a new season means a range of new items.
Between 26 March and 1 April, you can order whoopee cushions from Nook Shopping. These April Fool's Day props come in a variety of colors.
If April Fool's Day doesn't tickle your fancy, get ready for prom season instead. From 1 April, you can get themed fashion items, a prom stash, a prom wall, and prom night flooring.
ACNH has been out for nearly a year. To celebrate, the Animal Crossing update adds a 1st Anniversary Cake. You'll receive yours in the mail after installing the update.
Animal Crossing New Horizons will collaborate with Build-A-Bear soon. We'll keep you posted on any developments as soon as more details become available.
As always, Nintendo is full of surprises. Enjoy Spring with a few pranks and dust off your dancing shoes for prom season. Most importantly, make sure to download the free Animal Crossing update.
