April 4: Zipper is coming to get ya in Animal Crossing: New Horizons


That’s no yolk

It’s that time of year again. Time to put aside your balloon parcels, shirt exchanges, and fossil trades and dedicate every single second, minute, and hour, of your Animal Crossing: New Horizons day to the coming of Zipper, Animal Crossing‘s dead-eyed, eerily cheerful bunny.

As reported by good doge Isabelle, non-denominational Bunny Day will take place on April 4 this year, which is this coming Sunday, and will see Zipper visit your island to collect all of the souls eggs that you have gathered. As of yesterday, you might start finding eggs here, there, and everywhere in the environment: buried in the soil, at the bottom of the lake, falling out of trees. Wherever you find them, be sure to save them for Sunday, when you can trade them with Zipper for a range of seasonal goodies.

Now, Bunny Day last year was a liiiiiittle bit divisive. While it’s obviously a fun and cute holiday event, players were utterly frustrated by the amount of eggs turning up everywhere, at a time when most players were just hard at work looking for materials and resources. Perhaps this year, now the community is settled in their DIY homes, they can just chill and join in the spirit of the season.

After all, you wouldn’t want to upset Zipper would you?… WOULD YOU?…

Hello! Did you know that Bunny Day is on a different date every year? This year, it’s on April 4th—that’s next Sunday! Starting today, you might begin finding eggs hidden around your island. I hope you find eggsactly the number of eggs you want! pic.twitter.com/R9GNxYH5IL
