Starting today, is the month of September. Hooray! More importantly, it’s also a new month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. And as we transition from Summer to Fall, we’re going to run into new seasonal events and items. The most noticeable seasonal feature introduced in September is acorns. Yes, it’s time to get hyped about squirrel food. If you collect enough acorns while you’re out and about, you can change them into a collection of new items you couldn’t get a hold of before.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Acorns Guide

If you’re playing in the Northern Hemisphere, acorns have appeared starting today, and will be available through October 31. If you picked the Southern Hemisphere, you’ve already missed your chance back when New Horizons launched in March/April. To find acorns, you simply need to shake trees. It seems like the drop rate isn’t super high, so it might take a while to get the number you need. Also, acorns only fall from hardwood trees.
