As of today, it is officially September, and that means a whole new bunch of content in Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In addition to the usual fish and bugs that are now available, however, September officially brings the fall season to the popular video game's Northern Hemisphere. That means a couple more changes on top of the typical ones.
More specifically, players can now shake "certain" trees in order to find acorns and pine cones. Gathering these new items also allows players to craft new fall-themed DIY recipes, and the new trailer for the fall content specifically shows off the tree's bounty little tree, a DIY recipe that requires six pine cones, four acorns, and one piece of hardwood to make... well, a little tree. The video also shows off a bunch of new craftable pieces, though it doesn't show their recipes.
