A newly launched trailer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons indicates off some of events and other new features coming to Animal Crossing Items
the sport over the next few months. This includes new unique site visitors, Leif and Jolly (formerly Crazy) Redd, who were confirmed, but there is simply a third returning man or woman teased in the trailer: Rover, a friendly cat whose position in preceding games changed into to help you call your man or woman and metropolis.
Rover may be seen in short in the direction of the end of the trailer during the May Day segment. The May Day event, that's scheduled for May 1 through 7, has you journeying a unique island become independent from the everyday Mystery Tour deserted islands you can go to with Nook Miles. Nintendo teases, "A special tourist who appears familiar may be there...", and judging through the back of him, that traveler seems to be Rover. You can see a screenshot below.
In beyond Animal Crossing video games, you would encounter Rover on the teach at the very starting of LOLGA
the sport. There, he might ask you questions to determine your man or woman's name and gender, the time and date, and your city call. In New Horizons, that function is partly taken over by way of Timmy and Tommy, and you name your island after you have arrived.
