While there aren’t any official patch notes for the latest update of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, fans of the newly-released game aren’t waiting. The already active Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp subreddit (/r/ACPocketCamp) is actively datamining the update to see what treasures lay within.

But what’s in the update? As you would believe with a post-Black Friday patch, a collection of packs celebrating the upcoming holidays are included. With both New Years 2018 and Holiday 2017 decorations, players can start adding Christmas trees to their campsites. And if you aren’t the type of person to get into the holiday spirit, a new theme, 11 new villagers, and amenties have made the cut as well.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp had a relatively surprise launch earlier this week, when it randomly appeared on both the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store. Before then, the mobile game only had a few vague release windows in November. Check out the full patch notes below:
