After months of begging, it looks like Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans will finally get what they’ve been asking for all along: the arrival of The Roost café and its beloved owner, Brewster.
His return was revealed in a September Nintendo Direct, with more news promised at a later time. Now, we have date for a brand new Animal Crossing Direct set to explore the road ahead for one of 2020’s most popular games.
On October 15-16, Nintendo will reveal all about the new Animal Crossing content coming to the game in November, with a huge 20 minute showcase planned. That’s a lot of time to spend in one café, so you can safely assume there’ll be more content we don’t already know about.
Since early 2021, Animal Crossing: New Horizons hasn’t received any meaty additions, and there’s been little reason to pick up the game again. Expect all that to change when the new Animal Crossing Direct airs.
