ACNH OCTOBER UPDATE 2022 GUIDE


Animal Crossing New Horizons October Update 2022 (Events, Items, DIYs, Critters)

Whether in the southern or northern hemisphere, October is a busy and fun-filled season, not only will we be celebrating big festivals including Halloween, but we will also be able to collect a lot of seasonal DIY materials and recipes.


ACNH October Weather and Landscape

In October, we are on the verge of a more comfortable season in both hemispheres, as the northern hemisphere fully enters fruitful autumn and the southern hemisphere enters a grassy spring.

In October in the northern hemisphere, the golden autumn sunshine is warm and quiet, the autumn wind is gentle and gentle, the daytime is elegant and melodious, and the moderate amounts of rainfall bring a hint of coolness. The yellow of the trees and grass became darker, and the branches were covered with fruit. Make the most of fall and enjoy everything it has to offer - fresh air, cozy vibes, apple picking, and everything we've included on this fall wish list.

In October in the Southern Hemisphere, our island enters its most romantic cherry blossom season, and aside from the bright sunshine and mild spring breeze, also moderate rainfall occurs fairly regularly.


ACNH October Events & Seasonal Items
