Meeting new villagers is one of the best moments of playing any Animal Crossing game, and thankfully Animal Crossing: New Horizons is coming with eight brand new villagers introduced to the series!
Every Brand New Villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Audie is a new coral female Wolf villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Peppy personality. She wears a lovely Pineapple dress and may be inspired by the grandma who played over 3,500 hours of Animal Crossing: New Leaf in a viral video.
Cyd is a new red male Elephant villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. His personality is currently unknown and he wears a vest.
Dom is a new cream male Sheep villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Jock personality. He wears a rainbow tie-dye shirt and can be one of your two starting villagers.
Judy is a new pastel female Cub villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Her personality is currently unknown.
Megan is a new purple female Bear villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Normal personality.
Raymond is a new grey male Cat villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. His personality is currently unknown.
Reneigh is a new brown female Horse villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Uchi personality. She can be one of your two starting villagers.
Sherb is a new blue male Goat villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the Lazy personality.
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.
