The next Animal Crossing: New Horizons direct will take place on October 15 and will reveal what will be coming to the game in the next update.

Long-time fans will already know exactly who is expected to join the game due to the short teaser we got during the September showcase. As soon as the trailer started and the iconic museum cafe’s music could be heard, it was practically a given that pigeon barista Brewster is finally making his return in New Horizons, after months of speculation.

Originally joining the series in Animal Crossing: Wild World in 2005, the coffee connoisseur has run his own cafe either in the basement of the museum or in his own shop The Roost. Sitting at the top of most people’s missing Animal Crossing: New Horizons character wishlist - it’s about time our feathered friend made his well-deserved return. 

In other Animal Crossing autumn news, New Horizons recently received some new seasonal items to help players celebrate the likes of Halloween and Day of the Day in style. Not only will players be able to plant pumpkins and buy candy again in time for Halloween but Nook’s Shopping will also be offering new Spooky Items and a Marigold decoration item in honor of the traditional Mexican holiday. 

The next update could add a lot to the game but is Brewster too little too late for Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
