Bunny Day in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the first of the new in-game events coming to the smash-hit Switch title, and it’s coming soon. The event was announced during this week’s Nintendo Direct Mini, and will be live this April. Players will be able to take part in Bunny Day from April 1st to April 12th, but keep in mind that you need to be on version 1.1.1 to take part.
Zipper T. Bunny will show up in your game to celebrate the beginning of Easter within your town as part of Bunny Day in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. And yes, there will be plenty of bunnies and candy goodness going around. There’s some suspicion that the event will somehow involve Mystery Tour islands as well, but this has yet to be confirmed. We do know that Zipper will send the players to collect rare artifacts, probably involving bunnies and eggs, that can then be turned in for special rewards. Zipper has hidden eggs all over the island, so look everywhere you can think of.
Players who take part will also be able to snag some exclusive rewards. So get farming those Bells. Various event-themed furniture pieces and clothing items will be on sale starting on the 1st of the month.
Check it out in the trailer below.
And with the wrap of these events, Nintendo will be pushing out another patch on April 12 that will implement the Earth Day event as well. The Earth Day event is still a bit of a mystery, but expect more of the same with this event as well. There are likely to be various gathering missions and contests available on your islands through unique NPCs, all centered around environmental protection and conservation.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched last week on March 20 and has found huge success. The game has gained a ton of sales for the Switch console as a result. The Switch and Switch Lite even outsold their launch week in Japan this week, pushing more than 392,000 units. That sales number also helped push the console past the Wii’s lifetime sales in Japan.
