With the most recent update to this title, players were finally treated to favorites such as Stich, as well as Woody & Buzz from Toy Story coming to life in their home away from home. Alongside the launch of these new villagers, plenty of holiday delights were added in, as well.

Finally coming onto the scene on December 18, 2022, players will be able to find and capture Festive Fish in their local lakes and ponds. However, how will players know which fish are festive, and which ones may just be a flop?
