Bunny Day is being added to Animal Crossing New Horizons in April, marking the first in a line of planned post-launch events set to come to the game. It's an Easter-themed affair, tasking players with searching for Easter eggs, which have been hidden by a new bunny character called Zipper T. Bunny. Here's everything you need to know.

How to Start the Bunny Day Event

To start the Bunny Day event you'll need to speak to Zipper T. Bunny. They're a new character who will appear on your island. Just speak to them for more info on what you'll have to do. You will need to have downloaded all of the updates for the game so far.

Where to Find Easter Eggs

The main task you'll be working on during Bunny Day is collecting Easter Eggs. These can be found in a couple of ways. The first is to dig them up. You can find them by looking for Xs on the ground (this is similar to how fossils are found, more on that here). The other way to get Easter Eggs is to fish for them. From the looks of the video Nintendo has released on the subject, which you can watch on this page, some fish will actually end up being Easter Eggs when you pull them out of the water. This is similar to how trash like tires and tin cans work in the game.

What to Do if Bunny Day isn't Starting

Some players have reported that Bunny Day has not been starting for them. This actually happened to us too, all you need to do is head into your system settings and make sure you have the correct time and region set.
