Pumpkins are coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Halloween Update! We explain where and how to get them.
The Halloween Update lands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons this Wednesday, October 30. On the program: disguises, candies, and … pumpkins! It will be possible to create various objects thanks to DIY plans based on pumpkins.
But to craft these items, you’ll have to find pumpkins! We explain how to get it.
Where can you find pumpkins in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
With the arrival of the Halloween season in the game, it is possible to plant pumpkins on your island! But before planting them, you have to start by having pumpkin plants. You will then have to plant them, then grow them to harvest the pumpkins, and be able to use them for DIY plans.
There are two ways to get pumpkin plants:
- Buy them in the Nook store throughout the month of October
- Get it at Racine the rest of the year
Once you have a plant, plant it, and wait for it to finish a few days later. Then harvest the pumpkin which is now ripe, and use it to make the item of your choice!
Good to know:
- Four colors of pumpkins exist: orange, green, yellow, and white
- You will not know their color until they have grown
- You will have a better harvest by watering them every day
- Several pumpkins can grow on a single plant
To get Halloween crafting blueprints, wait for your neighbors to give you some, or pay attention to the balloons in the sky. You should find some without worry during the month of October! Don’t forget that on October 31 starting at 5 p.m. there will be a party in the main square of the island for Halloween.
