Animal Crossing is definitely one of the best Nintendo Switch games for Halloween. There are many activities to keep you busy until the last day of October when Jack, the self-proclaimed “reigning tsar for Halloween”, appears. Not sure what these guys are all about? We are here to tell you all about it and how you can prepare to meet him.
On 31st of October, players will be able to celebrate Halloween festivities with the villagers and a special holiday figure named Jack. Jack is a ghost with a pumpkin head that has appeared in several previous Animal Crossing games. Although we are not quite sure what his function will be since some of the other existing NPCs have been adjusted a bit in this latest game.

In previous games, Jack has appeared during October and asks you to give him candy. If players committed his sweet tooth, he would in turn give them spooky furniture. However, if a player refused to give him candy or gave him anything else, Jack would pull off some tricks such as replacing the clothes you are wearing with moldy or taking your hat off and making you wear a pumpkin helmet instead.
Tips and tricks for Jack
To prevent anything bad from happening on Halloween, we have some tips and tricks you can follow while Jack is on your island.
- Buy candy every day in October: The problem with identifying Jack in New Leaf is that all of your villagers dress up as him on Halloween, making it difficult to tell if it̵
- Do not leave the candy on the ground: Ants will quickly swarm on your hard-earned candy if you drop it off somewhere. You’ll have to put it in a safe place or store it in your warehouse for Halloween night.
- Keep tracks open in your inventory: If Jack is trying to reward you with something, but you do not have room to receive his gift, you need to take time for the Halloween activities to drop things off somewhere. Save yourself the hassle and make room before you do anything else on Halloween. We recommend having at least five slot machines open.
Do not wear your favorite clothes around Jack: Since Jack has been known to steal your clothes in the past, we recommend that you do not use anything you want to lose around him. For example, if you finally saved up and bought the expensive 1,000,000 Bell Crown from Able Sister’s, it would be awful if this phantom took it away.
Jacks Animal Crossing amiibo card not working – yet: Jacks Animal Crossing amiibo cards can be purchased on Amazon. Starting today when I scanned my card on Harvey’s Island, the game told me “Jack can not be invited to Photopia”. It is possible this may change sometime in October. I will keep you updated.
If Jack’s features turn out to be different, we’ll definitely update this section.
