Maple Leaf Materials & Recipes Return To Animal Crossing: New Horizons For Autumn Season

2 years ago 3 Comments

The Maple Leaves and their Autumn themed items have arrived for the 2022 fall season to enjoy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons throughout the next 10 days!

Beginning today, special Maple Leaf materials will start falling down from the sky across your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island for you to catch and enjoy. Just run around until you spot a large orange leaf floating in the air, take out your Net tool, and swing away!

Available from November 16th to 26th in the Northern Hemisphere, these limited time Maple Leaf crafting materials can be collected and used to craft 10 new gorgeous fall themed items. Maple Leaves are remarkedly similar to the Cherry Blossom Petals found during the Spring in the way you can obtain them and the length of time you can find them.

Most recently, a new 10th recipe of the Maple Leaf collection was introduced last year in the Version 2.0 Update called the Maple-Leaf Rug! If you haven’t actively played on your island since, you’ll want to grab that new recipe for your collection.

During this time, there will also be smaller and much more dull leaves floating in the air everywhere to celebrate the fall colors season, but these shouldn’t be confused with the proper large orange Maple Leaves! You can’t catch those small ones seen more commonly.

With Maple Leaves being available for just 10 days, we can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic for the early days of Animal Crossing: New Horizons at launch when we were all desperately hunting down Cherry Blossom items! At least there won’t be egg balloons polluting the sky this time though…

Just as with other seasonal materials, you’ll need to shoot down balloon presents from your island’s sky to get the new Maple Leaf DIY Crafting recipes for making the latest items. You can also get the Red-Leaf Pile recipe from Isabelle during her morning announcements near the beginning of Maple Leaf season.

Maple Leaf Recipes & Items

Here’s a preview of just a few of the Maple Leaf items you’ll be able to unlock and craft during November 16th to 26th in Animal Crossing: New Horizons…
