There’s a lot of spooky shenanigans in Animal Crossing New Horizons from haunted fake art sold by the deplorable Redd to communication with extraterrestrials. And no, these beings from outer space are not in a bloody green vs purple war like what is currently ensuing in GTA Online. If you want to see what we’re talking about for your very self, you will need to get a TV in order to witness this alien easter egg.
Animal Crossing New Horizons will be updated with new content for two-to-three years as confirmed by Nintendo, and players can expect to see more new villagers and experience more unique holidays as the year rolls on. However, while all of this is stuff to look forward to, you can witness the alien easter egg right now.
All you need to do is get a TV and have your character stay up way past their bedtime.
