ACNH Halloween Changes 2022

Towards the end of October, between October 28th and October 31st on Halloween itself,  Special Characters can also be seen wearing their Halloween Costumes. 6 Special characters can be seen wearing spooky Clothing items, including Tom Nook, Isabelle, Timmy, Tommy, Mabel, and Orville. The cool thing is, not only can they be seen during their normal roles whilst wearing their Costumes, such as Isabelle inside Resident Services, but they also continue to wear their Spooky gear during the Group Stretching. So, in the final few days of October, if you head to the Resident Services and take part in Group Stretching, you’ll see some of the Special characters all dressed up. It’s pretty cute.

ACNH New Halloween Items 2022

As an event that returns to Animal Crossing New Horizons every year, what we're most looking forward to is, of course, that new Halloween items will be added to the game.
