What to expect
Nintendo says the Animal Crossing Direct will offer more information on New Horizons’ November update, which marks the game’s first major content update since July. While the company hasn’t revealed many details about the update yet, we do know one major addition it’s bringing: Brewster.
During the September Nintendo Direct, Nintendo briefly showed off a newly added entrance to Brewster’s cafe, The Roost, inside the museum, confirming the cafe is finally being added to the game. We’ll likely get our first full look at the cafe and what you can do inside it during the Animal Crossing Direct, along with any other new features and items the update is introducing.
There’s also a chance we could hear more about the next wave of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards. Shortly after the September Nintendo Direct, the company revealed on Twitter that a fifth series of Amiibo cards is in the works and that details about the cards would be “announced at a later time.” While there’s no guarantee the new card series will be discussed during the Animal Crossing Direct, the presentation would be a fitting time to reveal more information about it.
