    Animal Crossing: New Horizons Island Villagers


    After the ACNH 2.0 update, the number of villagers on New Horizons Island is as high as 413. New Horizons is the latest installment in the Animal Crossing franchise. Since its release in March 2021, New Horizons has undergone several Animal Crossing Items updates and version upgrades, and New Horizons is already a mature and stable game. The animal villagers in New Horizons are not native, most of them were added from previous versions of the game. In particular, 8 of the 16 villagers brought by the 2.0 update are animal villagers who have returned. 8 villagers are new villagers, especially Shino, Ione, and Sasha are very popular with players. Based on the design concepts of different designers, the 413 villagers are divided into 35 different Animal Species and 8 personalities.

     

    Male Villager Characters: Lazy, Jock, Cranky, Smug.


    Female villager characters: Normal, Peppy, Snooty, Big sister.


    35 different Animal Species: Alligator, Anteater, Bear, Bird, Bull, Cat, Bear cub, Chicken, Cow, Deer, Dog, Duck, Eagle, Elephant, Frog, Goat, Gorilla, Hamster, Hippo, Horse, Koala, Kangaroo, Lion, Monkey, Mouse, Octopus, Ostrich, Penguin, Pig, Rabbit, Rhinoceros, Sheep, Squirrel, Tiger, Wolf.

     

    In the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, in addition to upgrading houses, inviting animal villagers to live on the island is also an important part of island life. Villagers play an important role in the daily life of the game. They can give gifts to players, and they can accept gifts. Complete the daily tasks of the villagers and they will also give you gifts. Especially in seasonal events, you need the help of villagers when you complete tasks to get task rewards, and they will provide you with important clues.

     

    How many villagers can an island pair invite to live on the island at most?


    10. Once the Nook's Cranny on your island is unlocked and open, you can invite new villagers to live on the island. The higher the island level, the more villagers you can invite. Up to 10 villagers can be invited to live on the island. Players guess the reason may be for user experience. The size of our player's island cannot be expanded. If more than 10 villagers are invited, the island will become crowded, destroying the comfort and visual appeal of the island. Too many villagers hanging out on the island can also make the island too noisy. If you want to invite the 11th lower villager, you need to remove a villager first.

     

     

    How to get villagers to move out of your island


    A: Voluntary move out


    1. Find the villager you don't want and snub him/her.


    2. Don't talk to her/him until a speech bubble appears above his/her head.


    3. Talk to the villager with the speech bubble above his/her head, he/she will take the initiative to invite him to move out. Just agree. PS: This process will consume a lot of your time. If you want to get nasty villagers out of the way quickly, you can use the Time Travel feature.

     

    B: Use the Amiibo card


    1. Scan the card into your Switch using the machine within your Town Hall.


    2. Visit the villager’s tent.


    3. Complete their DIY request (you’ll have to do this three times on separate days).


    4. If you have all 10 houses on your island filled, you’ll be able to pick which villager moves out.

     

    Just like trading Animal Crossing Items with friends, you can also trade villagers with friends. In the list of 413 animal villagers, some animal villagers will become popular due to a combination of factors such as character, dress, mantra, and species. The more popular villagers can be, the more valuable they are. Items traded include Animal Crossing Bells, Rare ACNH Items, Nook Miles Tickets, even Rare Furniture, Rare DIY Recipes, and more. Among them, ACNH Bells is the most important transaction method. Of course, you can also get cheap Animal Crossing Bells at ACNH Store. To get the most bang for your buck, players can check out online forums and dedicated marketplaces. This is the preferred method for those who are looking for a specific resident.
