This post covers the rest of April: villager shenanigans and move-ins and move-outs, island progress and de-progress (in a way), and the exciting update that brought us Leif, Redd, art, and bushes.
This post covers quite a busy time period: our first big event in AC:NH (Bunny Day!), a gorgeous time of year in the form of cherry blossom season, and also glimpses into the opposite hemisphere’s scenery with some WiFi visits. I also make big milestones in my island by inviting my faav, Melba, and unlocking terraforming.
As I expected it to be, it’s been hard to keep up with blogging while also streaming as much as I have been. Pardon the lateness, but I still want to record as many of these early memories as I can. This post is going to cover the rest of March 2020, that lovely bustling period of new openings and construction, new neighbors, and just the freshness of everything still being so new and magical.
I have a pretty long tradition about blogging my WiFi sessions on here, dating back to Wild World. :’) My WiFi experience in New Horizons has been so bustling that I doubt I’ll blog about every single visit extensively, but I did want to highlight some of these very first visits of mine to other islands! 🌴✈️ (Also as a little note, I would like to play major catch-up on this blog, but there’s no mistaking that I’m behind as I’m writing, so using past tense feels most natural, sorry if it’s off-putting in reading this as a journal 😛 )
I’m titling this post thus, because moreso than any other Animal Crossing game, it really does feel like we are given this little slice of the world to completely make all our own, from scratch, in the most peaceful and beautiful way I’ve ever experienced. In every new ‘main’ town (think the Dafdilly and Citàlune archives on this blog), I think it’s very special to record these early memories so that I can look back on them years down the road. :’) So that is what I’m going to do here~!
After development was confirmed for “Animal Crossing Switch” (as we’ve affectionately called it) back in September 2018, we finally got our first look at it during Nintendo’s E3 Direct and Treehouse game footage this year! Plus, a release date: March 20, 2020! Since it’s such exciting news, I thought I’d write a post about my thoughts and reactions, but feel free to not read further if you’re not interested in any spoilers for the next game. *image heavy* as well, might be best viewed off mobile.
I know that this isn’t technically the first time I’ve seen green grass in Suncombe, but it was especially exciting to see again because I only really started playing in this town last Autumn! This early-Spring grass is especially warm and vibrant, too, I love it! 💚 In April it will turn a deeper and more turquoise shade of green, so I’ll enjoy this current grass while I can!
Winter reached its peak in Suncombe with the festive, week-long Bright Nights event in February, and now we’re getting closer and closer to Spring. 🌸 There are a few things to cover from the end of January, too, since my last post on Suncombe only went until January 15th.
