Animal Crossing: New Horizons Expansion Reveal Teased During Nintendo Direct


More than 18 months after its original release, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally get another expansion, but we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out what it’s all about. At a minimum we know it will feature the return of Brewster, a fan-favorite character who dates back to Animal Crossing: Wild World on the Nintendo DS.

The trailer shown during today’s Nintendo Direct only offered a very brief glimpse of a new expansion to the museum, which will include Brewster’s coffee shop. Nintendo will reveal much more about the expansion at a future event in October.

What happens, this content update is a long time coming for Animal Crossing fans. While Animal Crossing: New Horizons has introduced several new features since its Spring 2020 launch — including new characters, events, and the ability to go swimming — it still lacks some features from the 3DS game.

Despite that, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been an incredible success for Nintendo, selling some 31 million copies in less than a year. It’s been described as the quintessential pandemic game, its wholesome community building making it something of an international obsession during a period where people have been stuck indoors.

While many have since departed to play other games, the new expansion will hopefully be a great reason to venture back. It releases November. In the meantime, stay tuned for a full recap following today’s Nintendo Direct.
