We hope you've prepared some scenic spots, because with this new update you will be able to enjoy summer Firework shows from the comfort of your island!
The Fireworks Show will be held every Sunday in August, meaning you get it 5 times this year as there are five Sundays in August in 2020!
You've decorated your island, now it's time to decorate THE SKY! We've got some cute designs to get you started, but you can use any custom designs as Fireworks and have them light up the sky during the Fireworks Shows. (But you first need to make space for non-path designs somehow...)

The owner of the Dream Suite has finally joined the group of familiar faces in New Horizons!
Whenever you sleep in a bed, Luna will greet you at the Dream Suite and let you visit offline copies of other player's islands.
While not a new visitor, Redd is now visiting with a different kind of shop - Redd's Raffle. He will visit every Sunday with Fireworks Shows, so you'll be able to find him easily this time!

Using the Dream Suite allows you to show off a copy off your island without having to worry about vandalism or theft, and it can be accessed without the owner being online, perfect for sharing the result of your 8 hour island-rebuild marathon!
You can access the Dream Suite from any bed, as long as it's inside your house, meaning Luna won't get a physical shop this time around.
Dream Suite Guide
Of course, you can also visit other dream towns and get inspiration or simply check out your friends' islands without them needing to be online, so we're really excited about the world of creativity that has opened up with the Dream Suite!
During the Firework shows, Redd seems to have found another business opportunity, selling new items to have fun with.
As the name suggests, it's a raffle and you might need to try a few times to get what you want, but all in all a lot of nice items have been added and we think it's worth it for those Summer parties with friends.
Before, you had to use a glitch to remove the camera interface when using the camera app, but now you can simply press down on your Right stick once and it will hide it for you!
When you make Custom Designs, you can now preview your design as a floor tile as well, on top of the standard easel, tank top and face paint previews.
A huge change has been made to the Custom Design Portal in the form of a new search function! You can now search for Design Titles and specify what kind of design you're looking for. For example, you could search "Zelda" and choose the
Finally, some might say, a service to back-up your Animal Crossing: New Horizons save data has arrived! We will update with info on how to use the service as soon as possible.

|King Tut Mask|
If you find a Gold Nugget, your character will get inspired to make this newly added DIY, the King Tut Mask!
When wearing the mask and running around, your character will often trip and fall. If you're holding things like balloons they will fly off and disappear, so be careful!
Players will receive a Fireworks Wallpaper for free as thanks for updating the game!
Available through Redd's Raffle, a load of new interactive items have been added:
|Red Sparkler||Blue Sparkler||Fountain Firework|
|Bubble Blower||Uchiwa Fan||Pinwheel|
|Tweeter||Blue Balloon||Red Balloon|
|Yellow Balloon||Green Balloon||Pink Balloon|
From August 1 to 31, the Rodeo-Style Srpingy Ride-on will be available from Nook Shopping's Special Goods section as part of the Cowboy Festival!
From August 1 to 31, the Hikoboshi Outfit and Orihime Outfit will be available from Nook Shopping's Special Goods section as part of the Cowherd & Weaver Girl Day!
The end of the video teases that the next free update will come in fall. Since Jack was shown on the screen, it's likely to hit around Halloween!

DA-1481-4576-3698. Toxic mushroom desert. Almost finished after switching halfway through 580 hours from your typical witchy cottagecore island. Waiting for fall so I can add more mushrooms. Will never be approved by Isabelle for 5 stars bc of all the dropped mushrooms but will always be 5 stars in my heart :)
