A decorative new seasonal item celebrating the ocean is now available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons today for your collection!
Celebrated in Japan later this month, the Marine Day holiday marks a time for appreciating the importance of the ocean to the country, especially given that Japan is an island nation.
To commemorate the holiday, a brand new seasonal item called the Ship-Wheel Door Decoration is available. As the name implies, this is one of the rare items in Animal Crossing that you can place directly on your house’s door as a decoration, just like various wreath items!
Given that it’s a fairly unique ship item that can be placed on doors, this seasonal item might find itself getting some more use than many of the other event items that are typically shoved away into player storage never to be seen again. As Nintendo shows off in the promotional image, it’s a great match for Pirate Gulliver items!
Players can pick up the Ship-Wheel Door Decoration item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping for 1,300 Bells from July 8th to 22nd, 2021.
Here’s the official description from Nintendo for the Marine Day shopping event:
This Japanese holiday celebrates the many blessings that the sea provides. It is a day to acknowledge the role of the ocean in cultural exchange, trade, and prosperity for a country surrounded on all sides by water.
After this, one more brand new seasonal event called Le 14 Juillet is around the corner on July 10th, but then that’s the end of new content in the current version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We’re expecting the next update to arrive in late July with the next batch of content though — learn more here.
