A free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is scheduled to drop on Jan. 28. It will re-introduce a familiar character, and a ton of new carnival and holiday items.
The new content includes seasonal additions, new reactions, new clothes to buy from the Able Sisters shop (for a limited time), and the Festivale special event.
Here’s the event description from the press release provided to us:
Feel the heat with the colorful Festivale event filled with dancing and flying feathers! On Feb. 15, Dancer Pavé will arrive to your island’s plaza to usher in some confetti and carnival spirit. On the day of the event you can capture colorful feathers floating on your island with your net and trade them to Pavé to receive a passionate dance number in return. Rainbow feathers seem to be an especially rare sight, so be sure to catch them.
That’s not all, however. Valentine’s Day additions and limited time items will also be added with the update, and a similar content drop is scheduled for March.
