Animal Crossing Direct announced for October, and it looks like Brewster is on the way

During today's Nintendo Direct, it was confirmed that a new Animal Crossing Direct is happening in October and that a free update is coming to the game sometime in November.

No doubt most exciting is the tease of a fan-favorite character first introduced in the 2005 Nintendo DS game Animal Crossing: Wild World. Brewster is a quiet, reserved, but ultimately very lovable pigeon that runs The Roost, a cafe players could visit in earlier games for a cup of coffee and some increasingly rewarding conversation correlating with how much coffee you drink. In Wild World, players would visit The Roost to see K.K. Slider perform his concerts, and in Animal Crossing: City Folk you could get Brewster to store your Gyroid. Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Brooster's most recent appearance, allowed you to work at The Roost after so many cups of coffee.

Nintendo has all but confirmed that Brewster and The Roost will be added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in November, but it's unclear what else the update will contain. Thankfully, with the Direct happening next month, it won't be long before we learn more.
