Meeting new villagers is one of the best moments of playing any Animal Crossing game, and thankfully Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) has introduced eight brand new villagers to the series!
Each of these new villagers are a different personality compromising of all eight possible villager personality types in Animal Crossing. So you can have an island featuring the entire set of new villagers while still featuring a variety of personalities!

How To Get The Brand New Villagers
Since there are currently no Animal Crossing amiibo cards for the new villagers in New Horizons, there’s unfortunately no way to force getting them specifically as a new arrival to your existing island.
However, there is one way you can guarantee at least two of the new villagers as a starting villager when beginning your island with enough time and patience, thanks to a trick in how starting villagers are selected!
When you begin a new island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, your first two starting villagers will always be a female villager of the Uchi personality and a male villager of the Jock personality.
Since two of the new villagers are these personalities, you can theoretically guarantee getting one of them by resetting the game enough times. Those two villagers are Dom the Jock Sheep and Reneigh the Uchi Horse!
Normally, that would be a pretty futile process with over 350 villagers in Animal Crossing, but it’s far more reasonable with the Uchi and Jock starting villagers restriction. There are only 24 Uchi villagers and 81 Jock villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
