ANCH Summer Update Wave 2 Patch Notes - Fireworks, Dreams, Backup In Animal Crossing New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Wave 2 Update is coming, which will brings fireworks, dreams, and the long waited island backup service! Follow us to check out the full details of the ACNH 1.4.0 Patch Notes!


When Does Animal Crossing New Horizons Summer Update Wave 2 Release? 

ACNH Summer Update Wave 2 will be released on Thursday, July 30th. The exact time would be different for different regions.


ACNH Fireworks Event - Weekly Firework Show in August

No update at Animal Crossing without a new event. This time you have the opportunity to take part in fireworks every Sunday evening throughout August. Not only are celestial bodies fired there, but there are also some activities.

Redd raffle: The sly fox, who actually sells paintings, has built a second mainstay and was the operator of a raffle at the time. Here you can buy raffle tickets with Animal Crossing bells to win special prizes. So far you can see small whistles, soap bubbles, hand fireworks and more. How exactly the raffle works can be seen on August 2 at the latest.

Own firework designs: But that's not all, because you can also customize the fireworks. In the trailer there are own designs with the heads of K.K. or to see Isabell. How exactly the fireworks design will look is not yet known.


ACNH Dreams & Luna - Visit Other Players’ Islands in a Dream!

The function around the Dream Suite has already been leaked by a Datamine: You can go to sleep in your house and will be asked if you want to dream. Then Luna comes and guides you by entering Dream Address code on a saved island of the other players without that they really have to be online at this moment. So you can look at particularly beautifully designed or interesting islands and are not dependent on the fact that they have just opened their gate and want to receive you.


ACNH Island Backup - Island Backup Restoration Service

Breathe easy for all fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With the ACNH Summer Update Wave 2, you can finally save your island more or less as a backup. Nintendo is launching the so-called island backup service for this, which will soon be launched with the update on July 30, 2020. With this your stored data can be saved on a server, which make it is possible to transfer your game status from one switch to another. The only requirement is membership of Nintendo Switch Online. The service is only limited in cases of technical problems, loss or theft of the console. Exactly how the island security service works will be announced on July 30 on the official website.


Next Free ACNH Update In Fall

But that's not all, because there will be an Animal Crossing update again in autumn. This will definitely include a Halloween event, as the first teaser suggests. What else could be in there, let alone a real release date, is currently unknown.
