The second free summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is just around the corner and brings you a little more security as well as fun. Thanks to a desired feature, you are prevented from losing your island forever.
Tomorrow, on the 30th of July, the second free summer update will be implemented in the game. One feature is particularly in focus. As Nintendo explains, all Switch Online customers have the option to activate a service that regularly secures your island paradise on the Internet. This will allow you to restore your work if your switch goes missing. In addition, the stored data should be able to be transferred to other systems in the future.
Of course, the summer update also brings a lot of fun to the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. A published trailer promises numerous summer activities such as Draw lots and fireworks, which you can look forward to every Sunday at 7 p.m. in August. If you want, you can even design your own fireworks.
What do you need after an eventful summer day? Quiet! With the new update you can finally sleep in your own bed and sweet dreams. In the dream world you will meet Serenada, who will let you visit other players' islands. There you have time to explore everything and even change it according to your taste – do not worry, the dream does not affect the "real world", but may serve as inspiration.
