Megan Nolan, staff

The next Animal Crossing: New Horizons update is on it’s way! As confirmed by the official Nintendo website, specifically the Canadian version, a free update is “around the corner”.  In their post on Nintendo games with free updates, the update is said to have “seasonal in-game events”  In addition, the post says the update will include “spook-tacular tricks and treats” leading fans of the franchise to expect the return of Jack, the pumpkin-headed specter who comes on Halloween night. Jack’s appearance in New Horizons was first teased in the trailer of the second Summer update. At the very end of the trailer, a picture pops up reading “Free Update Available This Fall” with a picture of Jack’s head. Previous titles of the series had events for both Halloween and Thanksgiving, so the update may also bring back Franklin, the turkey in charge of Thanksgiving events. Although Franklin is not as much of a fan favorite as Jack, players of the game still look forward to his potential arrival.
