There were already plenty of villagers for players to pine over in the Animal Crossing universe, but Nintendo just couldn’t help themselves. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, several new villagers have joined the ranks of the cute and unforgettable animals that you can bring to your island. If you’re trying to figure out who all the newbies are, then we can help. Here’s a full list of all the new villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
All new villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Joining the ranks of hundreds of other villagers, players will find that Animal Crossing: New Horizons includes eight brand-new islanders to add to your town. Each of these villagers range from different species and personality types, and we’ve broken them all down right here.
First up on our list is the new grey male cat villager that has been making the rounds on Animal Crossing: New Horizons twitter threads since the game’s release. Raymond has a smug personality, and he celebrates his birthday on October 1.
Next up is a new and absolutely adorable female Wolf villager named Audie. Believed to be named after the grandmother who played over 3,500 hours of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Audie is a Peppy Wolf and she celebrates her birthday on August 31.
The next new villager on our list is Dom, a sweet looking male sheep villager with a Jock personality. He likes to sport a rainbow tie-dye shirt and has the chance of being one of the two villagers that you start off with. He also celebrates his birthday on March 18, just two days before Animal Crossing: New Horizons released worldwide!
