Nintendo has released a new free update video for Animal Crossing: New Horizons unveiling a ton of new features and seasonal events coming to the title. Two characters from the Animal Crossing franchise, Leif and Reed, are set to make their return as traveling garden and art shops, respectively.

Leif will occasionally appear to sell flower seeds and shrubs while Reed will continue to sell in-game art and unique furniture. Similar to previous Animal Crossing titles “players will have to figure out which art pieces are real and which are fake.” Genuine art can be donated to the island museum to open an art gallery, which will showcase everything from paintings to sculptures.

Nintendo has also laid out several upcoming seasonal events that are expected to arrive starting April 23 until June 30. Here’s the line-up:

Leif’s Garden Shop – Nature-loving Leif will regularly visit players’ islands to sell his flourishing assortment of foliage, including shrubs and flower seeds. These decorative items will help make any island paradise a little greener.

Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler – After downloading the free update, Jolly Redd will occasionally show up in his boat to sell in-game art, as well as furniture with unique colors. Like in previous Animal Crossing games, players will have to figure out which art pieces are real and which are fake. After purchasing genuine art, players can donate it to the island museum to open an art gallery, which will display all types of donated pieces, from paintings to sculptures.

Nature Day (April 23-May 4) – During the Nature Day period, special Nook Miles challenges will be available that focus on nature-inspired goals, such as planting trees and watering flowers.

May Day Tour (May 1-7) – In the first week of May, players can use a one-time May Day Ticket at the island airport to head out on a limited-time tour to an island that looks different than the usual mystery island tours. A special visitor who looks familiar might also be there…

International Museum Day (May 18-31) – To celebrate International Museum Day, players can take part in a Stamp Rally. After receiving a special stamp card, players can enjoy viewing fish, insects and fossils while collecting stamps at the various museum exhibits to earn an in-game reward.

Wedding Season (June 1-30) – During a nuptial-themed June, players can visit Harvey’s island to meet the married couple Reese and Cyrus, as well as help arrange and take anniversary photos with them in the wedding-picture studio. Players will get wedding-themed items as a token of their gratitude.

The upcoming free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is expected to arrive on April 23.
