The 2021 holiday shopping season is at the mercy global inventory shortages and supply chain constraints. Animal Crossing: New Horizonby Timmy and Tommy Nook aren’t, and it looks like the owners of Nook’s Cranny will be making their own in-game Black Friday sale starting November 26 as part of the new update 2.0.

This news comes from ACNH gamers who have dared to travel weeks into the future and visit Nook’s Cranny for bargains. NintendoLife reported yesterday Timmy and Tommy will host a special Nook Friday event from November 26, the date of Black Friday in real life, to November 30, the following Tuesday.

During this time, the brothers will reduce the price of everything in their store by 30%. That’s a nice savings on small items and potentially a difference of tens of thousands of bells on more expensive items. Other players have started sharing screenshots from the future online confirming the event.

Of course, this does not mean that everything in the game will be reduced by 30%. Nook’s Cranny only sells certain items on certain days and it’s different for each player. Time travel won’t change that either, if you’re the type of person who would even consider doing such a thing, which I’m sure you’re not.

I made go November 26 to check out Nook early Friday but couldn’t find it, probably because I restarted my island and haven’t upgraded Timmy and Tommy’s shop to its final version yet. Fortunately, for me and anyone reading this, there is still plenty of time to do this (hereis a practical guide).

While Nook Friday is a cool new event to have in ACNH, and a great way for newcomers to catch up on their purchases, some gamers are disappointed that the massive game update 2.0 hasn’t added a whole new expansion to Nook’s Cranny. that would have been cool too! But there are plenty of other 2.0 stuff, and since yesterday the Happy home paradise Downloadable content, added and I could really use some extra bells to finish buy everything.
