If you’ve been returning to Animal Crossing: New Horizons ahead of a major update this week and paid DLC, preparing your island for the big day, you might want to visit Resident Services to get some special limited-time items.
Coming to the Lantern Festival, these special pocket lanterns will be available right now until November 11th. The festival is celebrated across Europe, New Horizons explains, and “includes a night where children carry lanterns and sing songs to mark the beginning of winter.” We would prefer to keep the winter at bay for as long as possible ourselves, but to each his own.
However, you can get your own by going to the Special Products section of the Nook Shopping in the Terminal in the Resident Service. Just go to the Seasonal tab to find them – it should look like this:
There are actually six different flashlight designs and luckily they can be obtained by simply customizing the flashlight you buy from Nook Shopping. Star designs were available to us in the store, and Moons, Stained Glass, Suns, Geese and Leaves were available as custom options.
Please be aware that the game’s latest major free update and Happy Home Paradise DLC will be out this Friday, November 5th.
