Animal Crossing: New Horizons Villagers and Special Villagers list

By James Billcliffe, Wednesday, 1 April 2020 15:49 GMT

Island life is no fun without friends. There are over 400 would-be inhabitants ready and waiting to visit, including more than 20 special villagers who provide services, and 390-plus normal villagers who can become permanent residents in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

While there are some notable absences where special villagers are concerned, it’s possible that they will feature in future updates and in-game events.

Your starting island features just two villagers – who’re picked at random. But as you upgrade your own digs and build more lodges, Tom Nook starts to invite more animals to be citizens of your town.

Below is a list of each and every one – datamined from the game itself – including their name, personality type, and what kind of animal they are.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Special Villagers

Although regular villagers live alongside you on your island, you will probably have more contact with the roster of special villagers who provide goods, guidance, and services.

Some of these – like Tom Nook – are a given, but there are a few favorites from older games missing.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Notable Absences

If your favorite vendor isn’t in the list above, I am truly sorry.

A lot of mechanics that were introduced to the player by special characters in previous Animal Crossing games are just done by text boxes or regular villagers in New Horizons – leaving those old friends without a reason to appear.

However, Leif was only confirmed in the Nintendo Direct announcing the Bunny Day special event – so there’s still hope. Here’s a list of all the special villagers who don’t appear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far, but could turn up later.

  • Brewster
  • Chip
  • Cyrus
  • Digby
  • Dr. Shrunk
  • Grams
  • Joan
  • Kapp’n
