New features[edit]

Events and holidays[edit]

Festivale[edit]

Festivale, and its host Pavé, return in 1.7.0. In preparation of the event, Nook's Cranny will sell Festivale Series furniture from February 1 to February 15, and Able Sisters will sell Festivale Tank Dress, Festivale Costume, and Festivale Accessory. In addition, four new Festivale-themed Reactions—Feelin' It, Let's Go, Viva, and Confetti—are added in 1.7.0, and they can be obtained via Viva Festivale Reaction Set. The reaction set is only available from February 1 to February 15 in Nook's Cranny.

On the day of the event itself, feathers will be floating around the town, and the player will need to catch them with a net. Pavé will ask the player to collect three feathers for him in exchange for furniture in the Festivale Series, customized to match whatever feather colors the player gives him. After nine feathers exchanges, Pavé will task the player to give him three Rainbow Feathers for a Festivale Float. Villagers will also wander around the town and will exchange feathers with the player. The costume color that the villager wears will indicate what feather color they will give to the player.

Festivale itself is time-locked, and only unlocks on 1.7.xa.

Setsubun[edit]

Setsubun, a traditional Japanese event that takes place before the first day of Spring in the old Japanese calendar, makes its return in 1.7.0, and is now celebrated internationally for the first time in the event's history.

Setsubun is celebrated in two parts. The first is a Nook Shopping seasonal event that runs from January 25 to February 3 with the sale of a Bean-Tossing Kit. The second is an Able Sisters event, where they will sell the Horned-Ogre Mask, Okame Mask, and Ogre Costume. The Able Sisters event can occur on any year while the Nook Shopping event is locked for future and past years.

Valentine's Day[edit]

Valentine's Day makes it return in 1.7.0. During the event, villagers with higher friendships with the player and Isabelle will deliver mail to the player with either a Chocolate Heart and a Heart-Shaped Bouquet. These items can also be brought during the Nook Shopping seasonal event that runs from February 1 to February 14.

This event is time-locked, and only unlocks on 1.7.xa.
