Watch the October 15 Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct livestream here

Tune in to the Animal Crossing Direct to hear about the new content coming to New Horizons in November.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons was a game we all needed at a time when there was so much uncertainty in the world. And now, almost 20 months after its initial release, players are being treated to more new goodies in the form of an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct. This Nintendo livestream will give an insight into the content update hitting the game in November. Check out the livestream right below so you don’t miss any of the announcements.

Animal Crossing Direct – October 15

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct livestream is scheduled to begin on October 15, 2021 at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET. The stream is set to last roughly 20 minutes, during which time players will get to hear what’s coming to the cosy and relaxing game in the next update.

While not a lot is known about the specifics of the next update, fans have been given a hint about one element: The Roost. Long-time fans of the series will recognize this as a café where villagers can hang out and chat. The café, run by Brewster, was seen referenced on a sign in the museum during the recent Nintendo Direct in September. It’s unlikely the entire 20-minute livestream will be dedicated to just this, so there’s sure to be a few more surprises.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has received a wealth of updates since its release back in 2020. Since then, players have enjoyed quality of life improvements, new ways to visit people’s islands, as well as plenty of seasonal events. The November update is sure to give players another reason to log back in and unwind. Check out the Shacknews Animal Crossing: New Horizons page for our coverage of this charming little title.

      Surprised this isn't being talked about in chatty. It was a lot of content. Free 2.0 update to the game is pretty big.

      Paid DLC coming too, and it's not small.

      Interesting bit is they are adding the DLC to the Online expansion since you need online to make full use of it (not necessary though).
      My wife and 3 daughters are all playing the game, and I've sub for the family online plan. Adding the expansion to the online plan could make sense for us since it would add it to everyone's game vs having to pay $100 for everyone. Except if we ever drop the expansion then they lose access to the DLC. It's an interesting business decision. I think I'm going to just pay the $100 since the kids wouldn't have any interest in N64 or Gensis games.

      This update is lit. What a butt ton of content! This is a serious quality-of-life update. And finally, Harv’s island won’t just be a creepy photo studio

      That is the first update/video that has me considering going back. The DLC looks pretty baller too. It's Happy Home Designer, but integrated into the main game. The room partitions, counters, and columns are gonna make a huge impact in home design by themselves.
