I'm doing a little dance bc I am so excited !!! I love halloween and everything looks sooo cute. almost on par with pocket camp as far as how cute the stuff added is. this looks to be a MUCH better holiday event than bunny day. I'm also glad I cleared out a spot next to my house for a veggie garden incase those rumours turned out to be true

I was definitely excited to see the update trailer drop earlier!!!
I, however, am not much of a Halloween fan, but I am excited for how cute the craftable things look! Like you, I cleared out a space for a community garden/pumpkin patch in the event that the rumors were true, and my mind is already running wild with how I'm going to decorate all of it!!
I'm also really hoping that the pumpkin-growing is a precursor to more farming mechanics later down the line. It would be cool if they implemented more vegetables and centered a whole farming/cooking mechanic around it.
Only negative thing I would say is that the trailer didn't really show off anything outside of the Halloween stuff, which disappointed me. I was hoping Brewster would be coming back, and that there would be some other Fall aspects added outside of Halloween. I know the update will probably implement smaller things not shown in the trailer (I want another Nook's upgrade so badly!), so here's to hoping!

I love what this implies for holidays!! It's such a nice fix to the overabundance of eggs by letting you control the seasonal crafting item yourself by growing it AND it looks so cute Also love that they're adding new customization options like eye and skin colors (maybe some more hairstyles in the future? ) Also also really love the addition of a couple new reactions! Wonder what'll stick around after this update though
I am a bit disappointed though.... like clydecalluvr pointed out there wasn't really anything outside of Halloween. I was hoping for a game update alongside the holiday one since this was the biggest gap between updates (I believe? At least for the last few months) so I was hoping something more might be in the works... that being said I'm sure life circumstances rn led to some delays of stuff getting implemented and I also wouldn't be surprised if they're using this time to work on the upcoming holidays since there's three big events month after month! Hopefully there'll be some more cool stuff down the line!

I'm SO excited! The pumpkins look so cute and I love the idea that we will be able to do creepy eyes and skin colour to match costumes (Not to mention the spooky emotes). Ahhhhh. Honestly, I'm not disappointed by the lack of other content. I love Halloween so much I'm happy with just that.

I really needed this update and I am glad it is coming. The summer updates were really underwhelming to me, considering they were supposed to last us 4 months.
Pros: Growing pumpkins is a big one! I wonder if we will be able to grow more vegetables in the future?
The Halloween event is only on Halloween! Finally! After bunny day I was worried that it would be a week or two, or we would have to fish for candy, but I am glad that none of that is happening.
This is really making me more excited to decorate my island, which I really needed!
Cons: Only stuff relating to Halloween, but isn't too bad because it's for a month, not to mention we have a confirmed November update.
Really wish there was a permanent thing coming to the island. For example, in the summer update they added swimming, which you can do anytime of the year. Right now, a lot of the stuff is either going to leave after Halloween or not going to be relevant until Halloween comes around again.
Overall take: So far, pretty good update for the second holiday they are taking. Not too annoying or in the way, but provides you with enough to really enjoy the holiday in your own way!
Future speculation: So now it's pretty much confirmed growing vegetables is a mechanic in the game. I wonder what they'll do in the future with it? Also, where is Brewster!!! You know what, where is another building!? I understand they want us to do most of the customizing and island building, but the progression takes a serious halt after K.K comes for the first time, and the island kinda feels empty. Brewster builds his cafe for Thanksgiving. Phyllis can have a little desk in the airport to send gifts for Christmas. Maybe Label can have her own section in the Abel Sisters store if you do enough of her tasks. I understand if Leif doesn't make a building, and K.K coming every Saturday doesn't really bother me.

So excited! Made the coolest little spot for my pumpkin patch/future vegetable garden and I couldn't be any more ready to plant some pumpkins in it!
I don't mind that Halloween is pretty much the only thing added in this update because I feel like I can play for a month or two on this stuff until the winter update comes . Still very hopeful for lots of cool new stuff to be added in the future.
Happy Spooky Season!
