Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) 1st Anniversary Event

Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) 1st Anniversary Event

Here you can find our estimate on what will happen for the 1st Anniversary of Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Read on to see possible Anniversary Events, items and characters.

1st Anniversary Dates and Times

On ACNH's Release Date

If Nintendo has a 1st Anniversary Event in store for us, it will be around March 20, the day of Animal Crossing: New Horizons' release.

What to Do During the 1st Anniversary

Since the event update is not available yet, we can only guess at how the 1st Anniversary event will be played in ACNH.

Town Anniversary

Town Anniversary - New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, your town would celeberate the day you arrived and assumed the position as mayor, otherwise known as the day you first booted up the game.

Isabelle would hold a ceremony at the plaza and commemorate you with a Sapling Clock.

Predictions for the 1st Anniversary in ACNH

Island Anniversary

Celebration - New Horizons

As many players started their islands as soon as the game came out, it would make sense for Nintendo to include an “Island Anniversary” Event similar to the one in New Leaf.

You and your island residents could celebrate one year of living on the island with a ceremony at the plaza and commemorative items.

Super Mario-themed Furniture

Nintendo previously announced that New Horizons would feature Super Mario-themed furniture in commemoration of the latter's 35th Anniversary.

No information has been revealed on what the furniture might be but it is expected to come around March 2021.

List of ACNH Super Mario Items



Brewster has been in all Animal Crossing games except the original and its remakes so we strongly suspect he’ll make a return in New Horizons.

Who is Brewster?

Brewster - Pocket Camp

Brewster is a coffee-loving, Gyroid-collecting pigeon. In past games, you would find him at the coffee shop.

Maybe he’ll return for the 1-year anniversary with a hot cup of coffee and his silent yet lovable demeanor.


Gyroids - Pocket Camp

Along with the return of Brewster, we suspect Gyroids might make a comeback with the 1st Anniversary Event!

What are Gyroids?

Gyroids are the animated furniture items that come in different sizes, shapes, and designs.

Players can find Lloid, the Gyroid, helping out with infrastructure projects on the island, although this still leaves much to be desired from Gyroids in Hew Horizons.

Villagers Referencing Gyroids

Some villagers reference Gyroids in their conversation, such as the live performance of the band Gyroid Gyroid.
