Animal Crossing: New Horizons has only just released and already it has completely taken over the gaming community with its pure joy, adorable graphics, and stalker-like tarantulas. Looks like the Big N is just getting started, because Nintendo has confirmed in a recent Mini Direct that the adorable building game is getting both an Earth Day event and and Easter celebration! 

The Easter event is technically called the Bunny Day event, Nintendo also teased their Earth Day event as well that will include the adorable sloth: Lief. Lief is a goshdarn treasure that we need to protect with our lives as they work effortlessly to protect the planet. Not only is the inclusion offering more awareness about being more aware of our impact on the world around us, but they are also bringing loads and loads of flowers. So basically, we're having a flower crown party, waddup! 

With both the Easter event and the Earth Day event, players will be able to earn exclusive limited-time items in the game while also enjoying a plethora of new activities to share. Check out our first look at what's coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the video below:
