Animal Crossing New Horizons

Players can hope for a lot from the E3 2021 Nintendo Showcase for Animal Crossing New Horizons. Many rumors suggest that the developers might be bringing back Gyroids in an update soon.

Along with that, other leaks suggest that Animal Crossing New Horizons might receive a Zelda crossover similar to that of the Mario one which released earlier this year. By adding items from characters like Link, and introducing villagers from the popular franchise, it will surely be a hit among fans. Plus, players also wish for some minigame islands to fulfill the potential of the game’s online multiplayer features. Players can do so much by competing against friends in these minigames, and this feature would easily be a fan-favorite in the community.

Fans can also hope for a major upgrade to Resident Services with Happy Home Designer elements. By expanding the building, players will have much more customization options, and they will never say no to that. Additionally, they can also expect some fence customization options to suit the player’s needs. With choices like these, fans will continue to throng towards this Nintendo Switch title.

New Villagers like NPC and more interactions

In terms of villagers in the game, fans also want to see the return of Brewster, the pigeon who runs a coffee shop called the Roost. They loved him in New Leaf because players enjoy working in his shop to sell coffee to others. Plus, players would also love to see more interactive choices and options with villagers to improve their experience. Repetitive dialogues will always bore people eventually. So, adding just a few more lines of chat could easily increase the level of entertainment for them.
