Animal Crossing: New horizon expansion revealed during Nintendo Direct

More than 18 months after its first release, Animal Crossing: New Horizons finally got another enhanced version, but we have to wait a bit longer to find out what it is. At the very least, we know that Brewster, a character popular with fans dating back to Nintendo DS’s Animal Crossing Wild World, will appear.

The trailer released on Nintendo Direct today gave only a brief glimpse of the new expansion of the museum, including Brewster’s coffee shop. Nintendo will reveal more about the expansion at upcoming events in October.

For Animal Crossing fans, this content update has been a long time. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has introduced some new features since its launch in the spring of 2020, including new characters, events, and the ability to go swimming, but some features of the 3DS game are still lacking. ..

Nonetheless, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been incredibly successful for Nintendo, selling about 31 million copies in less than a year. It’s described as a typical pandemic game, and building a healthy community is like an international obsession during a period when people are stuck indoors.

Since then, many have set out to play other games, but hopefully the new extensions will be a great reason to take the plunge back. Released in November. In the meantime, stay tuned for a complete summary following today’s Nintendo Direct.
