This is the promotion video released April 21st, 2020 by Nintendo's official account on YouTube.

Leif will now start visiting your island at the plaza, offering flower seeds and bush starters. We suspect he'll run his shop much like Kicks, checking in once every week to help you greenify your island.
The shop window shown in the video show that you can buy 4 bush starts, two types with two color variants, and 6 flower seeds, a total of 10 wares.
It has not been revealed whether new flowers will be added too. At the very least, he might sell flowers not available at your Nook's Cranny!
Another well-known character, the sly fox Redd will also be in the update.
He'll be selling both Art and Furniture, and will of course have no qualms about selling fakes to his cousins, business as usual!
Redd's Treasure Trawler can be found at the Secret Beach in the back of your island, so make sure you've made it accessible with stairs or terraforming!
You can inspect the art pieces available up close at his Treasure Trawler before buying, so you'll need to train your eye to spot the real treasures! Art sold here are actually based on artwork from real life, so you can learn a lot about art here!
|Game8 Strategy Team||The artwork above is based on "Rooster and Hen with Hydrangeas" by Ito Jakuchu. It looks exactly like this except that the real painting has blue flowers instead of red, so this artwork is a fake.|
We will update our guide on art and forheries as soon as the update comes out.
Cyrus and Reese are the owners of the Re-Tail shop back in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Cyrus specifically, used to do customization for items. Their addition in the game might mean that a Nook's Cranny upgrade or an entirely new shop might be on the way as well.
The video did not mention anything about it, unfortunately, so we can only speculate as to whether the two will help customize Furniture in the near future or not. But we sure hope so! Trading is nice and all, but it can take a lot of time and resources.
You and Harvey will help take their anniversary photos on Wedding Season! Jump to this section to learn more about this event!

Buying Art is nice and all, but where will you put it? On the Second Floor of the Museum, is where!
You can see the bottom of a door added between the two benches on top of the stairs, so we believe that's where the Art Gallery will be added.
Like the other parts of the Musuem, the Art Gallery looks to have gotten a serious upgrade and collecting all Statues and Paintings will probably take a great deal of effort, even without forgeries to look out for!
Art Gallery Paintings
Art Gallery Sculptures
We are shown part of the Art Gallery, and there are plenty of spots for both Paintings and Sculptures waiting for you!
Only four different bushes were shown in the video: Pink-Azalea, White-Azalea, Orange-Tea-Olive, and Yellow-Tea-Olive.
They were all sold as Starts, so most likely you'll have to grow them for a while before they bloom.
・Pink / White Azalea
・Blue / Pink Hydrangea
・Red / Yellow Hibiscus
It is possible that Sweet Olive has changed its name to Tea-Olive.
Also in the inventory, a fully grown Azalea was planted directly. We think you'll be able to move bushes with Shovels, just like you can move Flowers and Trees that way.
While it's unknown whether it's related to Leif and Nature Day or not, a new type of Shrubbery /Hedge Fence was shown.
We have all been looking forward to getting something like it and really look forward to decorating our islands with hedge fences!
|Nature Day Event (04/23~05/04)||May Day Event (05/01~05/07)|
|International Museum Day Event (05/18~05/31)||Wedding Season Event (06/01~06/30)|

Nature Day is the time to celebrate and to raise awareness on environment protection. This event is headed by Leif, and will take place from the 23rd of April to the 4th of May, giving you plenty of time to participate in the event.
During the Nature Day event, you'll have Special Nook Miles+ Activities available to earn Miles with. Leif will also be at the Plaza to provide you with flower seeds and shrub starts!
From May 1st to May 7th, thus overlapping the Nature Day event, is a new Event called May Day. It seems like a special character named Rover, will be making a comeback as well!
It looks like you spend May Day Tickets at the Airport to go on May Day Tours.
These special islands are far different from the ones on Mystery Tours. On the island shown in the video, a Tool box is dropped in a hedge maze, along with Tree Branches and Stone, so you'll probably be able to find some nice treasures there. Rover, a special character, seems to be waiting at the end of it!
Since Rover obviously can't help you determine your gender in this glorious, gender-free island paradise of ours, it's unknown what Rover might do for the player at the moment. We'll keep you posted as soon as we make it through the maze!
Blathers is in charge of the International Museum Day event, and a much beloved activity in Japan, Stamp Rallies, is making its way to Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
The event takes place from May 18th to 31st, and it looks like you have to visit different parts of the museum to collect stamps.
The requirements to get stamps are currently unknown. You might need to make a lot of donations to get your stamp, or if visiting other players' Museums will grant different stamps than yours, but let's try to donate as many bugs, fish and fossils as possible!
The video promises in-game rewards for collecting the stamps, so keep an eye of for our guide when the event rolls around!
For the entire month of June, from June 1st to 30th, a new event called Wedding Season will take place.
In the video, we're shown Cyrus and Reese, the Alpaca couple of Re-Tail, asking you and Harvey help them take some gorgeous Anniversary Photos. We'll gladly help out, so won't you consider moving into Nook's Cranny? Pleeeeaaase?
