Ahead of the Halloween season, an Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has built a storefront in the likes of the Spirit Halloween store .
An Animal Crossing player has made a Spirit Halloween shop in anticipation of the upcoming holiday. The Halloween season may not be for another month, but this display shows it’s never too soon to get into the spooky spirit.
Currently, there aren’t any announced details for the 2021 Halloween event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. 2020’s Halloween involved acquiring candy and giving it to Jack, the Czar of Halloween, for some Halloween-themed furniture. This second Halloween event will likely play out the same, but the only known new additions for the holiday are a few new Halloween items to be added to Animal Crossing in the seasonal Nook Shopping tab for the month. Otherwise, it’s assumed October will play out the same.
But this Spirit Halloween shop shows that fans are already setting up Halloween décor to get ready for the season. Reddit user apeycakez recreated this Halloween emporium remarkably well, making it look just as much of a storefront as Nook’s Cranny. The use of the many simple panels is what helps communicate this the most, as does the spooky candy set and the Halloween clothing in front of the store. The street décor outside of the shop also makes it feel as though it’s a store in a real city.
The next update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is speculated to finally add Brewster the pigeon. Brewster and his shop the Roost have been sorely missed from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and have been present in several datamines for some time. Though the next update supposedly isn’t scheduled till late November according to the datamine, if Brewster does get added, it would bring something new to the game, since Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still in desperate need of new content.
Until the next update eventually drops, the next few months in Animal Crossing: New Horizons won’t provide anything substantially new beyond a few new seasonal items. With that said, Animal Crossing: New Horizons does still provide plenty of tools to customize players’ islands, with the simple panel being one of the most flexible items in the game for that purpose. This Spirit Halloween storefront is just one example of how players can theme their Animal Crossing island around Halloween. Even if 2021’s Halloween season only adds a few new items, the player base will still likely get into the Halloween spirit by theming their islands such as this once October arrives in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
