Bunny Day is coming to New Horizons

Bunny Day coming April 1st
  • Easter-inspired event runs April 1-12
  • New items, character, and more
  • Earth Day and new features coming later in April

The first event for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is almost here! Bunny Day, the series' spring- and Easter-inspired event, starts next Wednesday, April 1 and runs through Sunday, April 12.

Players will get to meet a bunny called Zipper, who will hide special eggs all over the island. The Nintendo direct video (see below) show them buried in the ground and fished out of the sea. The eggs will be used to craft new limited-time items, like tables, stools, a crown, an archway, and more.

The direct also mentioned another update coming later in April, which will include new features and the Earth Day event. Earth Day in the real-world takes place Wednesday, April 22, so expect the in-game event to take place somewhere around then.

Here's the full direct from Nintendo:
