Monday, May 24th, 2021 10:34 am

The popular English cheese-rolling event rolls into Animal Crossing for a limited time.

The annual Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake in Gloucestershire, England is coming up on May 31, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons is celebrating with a new item in Nook’s Shopping.

The iconic cheese wheel–called the Double Gloucester Cheese–used to roll down Cooper’s Hill has been added to the Special Goods section of the in-game catalog. Players can purchase the cheese wheel for 1,200 Bells between now and May 31.

For those unfamiliar, the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling event is a tradition in England going back to the 1800s, with citizens chasing a wheel of Double Gloucester cheese down a 200-yard hill during the country’s Spring Bank Holiday. 

The item’s description reads as follows: “Do you love cheese enough to chase a wheel of Double Gloucester down a hill at 60 miles per hour? Many folks in Europe do! It’s all fun and games until someone gets curd.” 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. It’s available to purchase physically and digitally for $59.99.
