Nintendo got a brief look at the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons things to show during his Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday. It is one of the New Horizons’ most anticipated updates, adding a key character that fans have been begging Nintendo for – like Brewster and his cafe, The Roost.

New content for New Horizons may be the first substantial update to the adorable life sim game since March 2021, when Nintendo added the Custom Design Pro Editor Plus feature, a slew of new Sanrio-themed characters and items, and farts. Since then, Nintendo has relied heavily on annual holiday events, limited-time seasonal items from Nook Shopping, and bug fixes to keep Animal Crossing fans entertained.
In July, Nintendo acknowledged the draft content in New Horizons, promising more free content to come sometime in 2021.
Animal crossing: New Horizons was originally released on Nintendo Switch in March 2019. Nintendo has since sold over 33 million copies of the game, making New Horizons the most successful Animal Crossing game to date. Animal Crossing: New Horizons Certainly has fewer players these days than at launch, but that’s to be expected. Still, the game has been a major boon for Nintendo, which has sold nearly 30 million Nintendo Switch consoles in the past year. It even helped fuel a Nintendo Switch shortage at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
