The Lunar New Year is an event in the Animal Crossing series that occurs in January or February. It appears only in Korean towns in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Its date is based on the Chinese New Year and changes each year.

Appearances[edit]

In City Folk[edit]

In Korean towns in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Tortimer appears outside Town Hall on the Lunar New Year and will give the player a Yut if spoken to. After the discontinuation of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in 2014, the Yut can only be obtained in the Korean version of the game.

In New Leaf[edit]

In Korean towns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a cutout appears in the event plaza on the Lunar New Year, and Isabelle also appears in the plaza from 6 AM to 12 AM. If spoken to, she will give the player a Yut Board.

In New Horizons[edit]

Beginning in the 1.7.0 Free Update, three Nook Shopping seasonal event items can be purchased to coincide with the Lunar New Year from February 10 to 17. These items include the Lucky Red Envelope, Lunar New Year Decoration, and Bokjumeoni Lucky Pouch.
