The best thing about the title that makes it stick out from the other prevalent Nintendo Switch games is allowing the players to celebrate the real-life festivals and events in-game. It was that time of the year again when you divert all your attention to the year’s first ACNH celebrations i.e. Festivale. Here’s all you need to know about the event.
ACNH Festivale Event
The ACNH Festivale begins when the advent of Pavé the peacock on your island, Resident Service Plaza and confetti cascades down from the sky. In the event, your cute villagers gets adorn with shiny clothes and headdresses full of feathers. Upon interacting with Pavé the peacock, the birds set the players on a mission to collect feathers.
You need to get them with the help of a net when they drop from the sky with confetti. It is necessary to make sure you gather the said colour in a specified quantity only to procure amazing rewards from the Pavé the peacock. The reward was a dance, DIY recipe, Festivale items.
The ACNH Festivale is based on the real word festival Mardi Gras. Hence, it commences just before this real-life event. This 2021 the Festivale started on 15th February 2021. However, the date of the holiday is not fixed and changes each year the Festivale is usually scheduled in either February or March.
What To Do?
The ACNH Festivale lasts hardly for 25-30 minutes in which the Able Sisters carry sparking clothes pretty well for added fun. Here’s how the event took place:
1. Speak with Pavé the peacock on the Resident Service Plaza and get Rainbow Feather DIY.
2. Use a bug net and capture the red, green, purple, and blue feathers that drops along with the confetti across the island.
3. Convince the villagers to trade feathers for a colour you failed to get.
4. Employ 1 red, 1 green, 1 purple, and 1 blue feather and craft a Rainbow feather.
5. Exchange the Rainbow Feather with Pavé the peacock for a Festivale item. Each Rainbow Feather fetches you 1 Festivale item and in total there are 9 items.
