ACNH Halloween Event Prediction

Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Event Release Date

Even though the Animal Crossing events do differ slightly from game to game, you can still get an overall idea of what past Halloween event has been like and what role does Jack play. Now, we can speculate Jack will return to New Horizons with the Halloween activity and play a role similar to the previous series. So, all the contents included in this article are based on the ACNH Halloween event predictions. New features will be available on when more information is confirmed. 

The ACNH Halloween event is most likely to start on the night of October 31, 2020, which is the schedule of Halloween in the real world. 

Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Event - Jack and His Rewards 

Jack, who is a character from the Animal Crossing series, is the self-proclaimed Czar of Halloween. During the event, he will wear a pumpkin on his head to make him indistinguishable from other villagers who are also dressed like that. He typically appears once a year for Halloween in October, from 6 PM to 1 AM the following day, the event may differ slightly from past games, but for the most part, Jack hosts a kind of trick-or-treat style game that involves scaring villagers and distributing Halloween-themed ACNH items. The spooky furniture can only be obtained from Jack. In the video for ACNH summer update 2, Jack was confirmed to appear in New Horizons, in the next update set for autumn.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Event - Scaring Villagers and Trick-or-Treat Games

How to get candy in Animal Crossing? Win a mini-game with an outdoor villager. During the Halloween celebration on October 31, villagers around the island will chase you outside and start a game of trick or treat, when interacting with these villagers, you can either hand over candy when they catch you or accept the trick by playing a mini-game such as Charades, if you win the game you earn more candy, but if you lose, items in your inventory or even the clothing items you're wearing can be replaced with trash items, for example, turning an inventory item into a Jack-in-the-Box; replacing your top with a Patched Shirt or Moldy Shirt; giving you, or replacing your hat with a Pumpkin Head helmet. Get as many treats as you can and getting tricked as little as possible. 

How to get lollipops in Animal Crossing? Talk to an indoor villager while wearing the correct mask. Players can scare others staying at home by wearing certain masks that are available to buy from the Able Sisters throughout the month. If you wear the correct mask and successfully scare the villager, you can earn the lollipops. Candy and lollipops can be redeemed for limited seasonal items. Jack is often the go-to character to earn furniture items from both the spooky set that consists of a bunch of bright orange pumpkin-themed furniture items and the creepy set that consists of the creepy graveyard and Halloween themed items

What mask should you wear for scaring villagers inside? When interacting with villagers who stay at home, you have to wear specific Halloween masks, including Bug Mask, Ghost Mask, Monster Mask, Mummy Mask, Skeleton hood and Werewolf hood. Each villager has a specific mask to wear. 

Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Items & Theme Furniture

What items you can get on Halloween and how to get? New Leaf releases the following list of items obtainable during the Halloween event. The Creepy/Spooky DIY recipes should also be available to craft the themed furniture and other items. The whole set of Animal Crossing Halloween furniture can be used to create a theme design. Some of the Animal Crossing items such as the masks are available to buy from shops in past games but sets like the spooky set can only be obtained directly from Jack like how you would only get the pirate set from Gulliver in New Horizons. Please note that the Animal Crossing Creepy items need to be gained through trading a lollipop with Jack, while for obtaining the Animal Crossing Spooky items, you should give Jack candy. You can also get a variety of clothing items released with the ACNH fall update trailer.
