Leif and Redd arrive as vendors in New Horizons. Leif is a sloth gardener who sells different types of seeds and saplings in the town square. Redd is a more suspicious vendor, as he’s a fox who leads the Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler.

Similar to in the previous Animal Crossing entries, Redd sells both genuine and counterfeit art, and it’s up to the player to spot the difference between them. Also, Redd doesn’t offer refunds. However, if players buy genuine art pieces, they can donate them to Blathers and his museum’s art gallery.

From April 23 to May 4, Nature Day will take place. There will be special Nook Miles challenges that allow players to earn extra rewards by participating in nature-based activities. From May 1-7, players can partake in the May Day tour to visit a unique island with a special guest.

International Museum Day is May 18-31, and players can earn rewards through a Stamp Rally by touring the museum and collecting stamps at the different exhibits. Lastly, from June 1 to June 30 in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Wedding Season will take place and players can head to Harv’s Island to take wedding anniversary photos for Reese and Cyrus. Rewards seem to include wedding-themed items. Check out the video for a full picture.
