The new patch 1.5 brings a lot of fun new features to the game ! You can now grow pumpkins, buying them and planting them around your house.

You will be able to purchase spooky costumes from the Able Sisters store and get body paint or colored contact lenses using your Nook Miles. There are also DIY Halloween projects for your neighbors to have available!
You can also celebrate October 31st in Animal Crossing! After 5 p.m., your neighbors will gather in the plaza, which will feature a bunch of fun Halloween decorations. You will receive a new guess named, Jack, who is the “Halloween Czar“. If you give Jack some of your candy, you will earn new festive rewards.
This update also offers the chance to revisit dreams, so you can return to islands you once loved.
The NookLink service available through the Switch Online app receives an update in early October. You will be able to perform in-game reactions with your smart device. You can use these reactions to let your visitors know what you think of the tips and treats!
