​How the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Seasons change

2021/8/24



In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the natural environment is synchronized with the earth. There are also the southern and northern hemispheres, and there are also four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, 24 hours a day. The season of your island depends on the geographic location and time of your game settings. This allows players to combine the game with real life, but it is different from reality.


At present, the summer in the northern hemisphere is coming to an end, and the autumn that follows is slowly changing. The winter in the southern hemisphere has just ended. If the player is interested in the season of the other half of the earth, he can manually change the date and adjust the season. Although we can change the season arbitrarily, this is not known in advance as the content of the event.


With these seasonal changes, Animal Crossing players will also look forward to new seasonal activities. New seasonal changes will also make people feel fresh and want to explore new activities. The change of seasons will replace marine life, fish and bugs. Players who like to collect and capture must not miss every seasonal change.


The change of seasons and months will also change the forageable food, bugs, and fish that players can collect. There are rare DIY recipes and Animal Crossing Items in certain seasons, such as the cherry blossom season in spring and the maple leaf season in autumn. Because of this, for those trying to complete the collection for Nook Miles and their island museum, every season of the game is very important.


The following is a breakdown of the seasonal change dates:


   Northern Hemisphere Spring-Begins on February 25 and ends on May 31.

   Northern Hemisphere Summer-Begins on June 1 and ends on August 31.

   Northern Hemisphere Fall-Begins on September 1 and ends on November 25.

   Northern Hemisphere Winter-Begins on November 26 and ends on February 24.


   Southern Hemisphere Spring-Beings on August 25 and ends on November 30.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been open for free for nearly two years. Although the seasonal changes are the same, this is not a simple repetition. It will continue to innovate on the original basis. Every new addition or change will make players full of surprises and expectations.
