The Summer Update (Wave 2) (version 1.4.0), known in Europe as the Free Summer Update Vol. 2,[1] and Australia as the Free Update Vol. 2[2] was an update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons released on July 30, 2020. This update marked the return of the Fireworks Show, a staple in the Animal Crossing series, as well as the return of Luna and the dream mechanic. It was announced on July 28, 2020.[3]

New features[edit]

  • The Fireworks Show returns in 1.4.0, happening every Sunday throughout August. Isabelle will give the player a random bopper hat and allow the player to submit up to ten custom fireworks from their custom desings during the show. Redd is present during the show operating a raffle stand for any handheld items for the Firework Show.
  • The dream mechanic returns in 1.4.0, alongside the proprietor Luna. Players can upload their own dream islands or visit any other dream islands. Unlike New Leaf, there is no charge to enter a dream island, and accessing a dream island requires a bed item to sleep on.
  • A new feature was added to the NookPhone Camera app, allowing to turn off the guide information by pressing in the R Stick.
  • A new feature has been added to the Custom Designs Portal which allows searching by design name or type. Additionally, players can now create a list of favorite creators.
  • A new feature has been added for backing up save data to Nintendo's servers via the internet. Players can use backed up save data with the island backup restoration service if their Nintendo Switch system is lost or broken.
  • New Nook Shopping seasonal events include the following events:
