This year’s Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice are here, and it’s your last chance to grab a couple seasonal event items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
These limited-time Animal Crossing items serve to celebrate the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and start of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere with the longest and shortest periods of daylight in each part of the world.
For players in the Northern Hemisphere celebrating the Summer Solstice, they can pick up the Sunflower Crown and Sunflower Rug items right now. The Sunflower Crown was available last year, but this month is the first opportunity for NH players to get the Sunflower Rug.
And for players in the Southern Hemisphere celebrating the Winter Solstice, they can pick up the Midwinter Sweater and Aurora Wall items right now. The Aurora Wall is a particularly stunning item that every Animal Crossing fan needs!
All of these Animal Crossing: New Horizons seasonal items can be purchased in the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping from June 15th to 21st, with the appropriate items available for your island’s hemisphere.
Here’s the official descriptions from Nintendo for the Summer Solstice shopping event:
