The Animal Crossing: New Horizons version of The Roost features a sentimental bit of decor that gives players a glimpse into Brewster’s past. 

As spotted by a Twitter user during the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Brewster direct, the pigeon barista has decorated the new version of his coffee shop, The Roost, with a few mementos from his previous lives in older Animal Crossing games. 

On the wall as soon as players walk into the Museum cafe you can spot three black and white photographs framed on the wall. What makes these photos special though is their significance to long-time Animal Crossing: New Horizons players.

The first photo is of local musician K.K. Slider who in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk performs at the café every Saturday night. In the second photo we can see The Roost when it was a standalone café in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and finally a photo of Brewster with his good pal Blathers - the pair have been friends ever since Wild World in 2005 when Brewster first set up shop in the basement of Blathers’ museum. 

In fact, this isn’t the only new addition to The Roost which has had quite a big makeover from its previous incarnations. The bare bones coffee shop we all remember from earlier instalments of the series has been revamped into a suave hangout which can seat up to eight players compared to the previous two in Wild World and City Folk and four in New Leaf.

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 GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
