Ketchup is a red duck that resembles a tomato. She possesses an orange beak, orange cheeks, black legs, and green hair that has the appearance of leaves on her forehead. Ketchup’s favorite color is yellow and her favorite song is Neapolitan.

In New Horizons, Nintendo gave her unique personality trait and most players recognize her from her play hobbies and run around habit with her arms extended.

Furthermore, if Ketchup moved in during the main storyline after the villager’s house development quest, her house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline. Her house looks very different from others and gives a warm welcoming gesture.

How to invite Ketchup to your village?

You can only invite Ketchup to your island like other amiibo villagers via their amiibo card. Therefore, you must have her amiibo card beforehand to invite her to your island. You will have to follow various steps to invite Ketchup or any specific amiibo villager.

  • Upgrade Resident Services to a building
  • Build a campsite
  • Interact with the kiosk at Resident Services and select invite a Camper.
