Mushrooms Come North in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The “Mush Set” of accessories and home decorations in Animal Crossing: New Horizons quickly became a fan favorite earlier this year. As mushrooms were available in the month of May for players in the Southern Hemisphere only, Northern Hemisphere gamers had to buy or trade if they wanted to grab these cool fall-themed items.

Now, mushrooms have finally made their way north. During the entire month of November, Animal Crossing: New Horizons players can find five types of mushrooms growing around their island, and collect mushroom-themed DIY recipes by popping colorful balloons which float past every in-game day.

The five types of available mushrooms are flat, round, skinny, elegant and rare. The first four types grow above ground, and can be harvested near the bases of cedar, fruit and hardwood trees. Avoid planting flowers or placing furniture near these trees in order to maximize the mushroom spawn rate. While all four of these mushrooms can be sold to shopkeepers Timmy and Tommy, only the Elegant Mushroom fetches a high price: 10,000 bells.

The last type of mushroom, rare, grows underground. Look for cracks in the ground located near trees and dig in these locations to possibly find a Rare Mushroom. These special fungi can be sold to Timmy and Tommy for 16,000 Bells.

The Mush Set contains twelve recipes, including tables, stools, wall decorations, as well as the Mush Lamp, which glows in a variety of fairy-tale like colors. Eleven of these recipes are found by popping balloons, while the Mushroom Wreath recipe is given out as a free gift by everyone’s favorite cheery assistant, Isabelle.

Mushrooms aren’t the only change coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons during the month of November. In a few weeks, a Harvest Festival event will take place, starring turkey villager Franklin. During the event, Maple Leaf materials will also be able to be collected all over your island.
