Animal Crossing gamers’ favourite coffee-slinging pigeon is shifting into the New Horizons museum in November, Nintendo confirmed throughout Thursday’s September 2021 Direct presentation. Of course, we don’t but have a ton of data, however Nintendo gave us a peek into Animal Crossing’s latest enlargement by way of a brand new signal posted on the museum in its brief clip: The Roost, open 24/7.

Nintendo provided an early look into what is presumably the brand new house, albeit blurred with with textual content overlaid on high. Longtime Animal Crossing followers instantly knew what this was hinting at: Brewster is opening up his espresso store, The Roost, in your island.

If New Horizons is your first Animal Crossing game, chances are you’ll be questioning: Who is Brewster? What is The Roost? And why is everybody so dang excited for him to get right here? We’ve bought solutions so you may get acquainted with the fowl earlier than Nintendo’s upcoming Animal Crossing Direct in October.

Who is Brewster and what is The Roost?

Brewster is beloved, a longtime fan favourite since his first look in 2005’s Animal Crossing: Wild World. Since then, he’s run a espresso store inside the assorted game’s museums till New Leaf, when he opened his personal retailer. You can discover him behind the counter; he’s the pigeon with small, round glasses and a elaborate waistcoat with an apron. Naturally, he’s very keen about espresso — and that’s stayed constant all through Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf.

Though his particular habits is barely various relying on what game we’re speaking about, Brewster usually begins out a bit of bit shy — form of like Sable from the clothes store. You’ll get extra conversant in him the extra you step in for espresso, and he’ll begin getting extra pleasant. Sometimes you may get particular drinks like pigeon milk. (He is additionally specific about how gamers drink espresso: If you don’t drink it scorching, you’ll get on his dangerous aspect.)

Brewster is additionally fairly into gyroids, Animal Crossing’s distinctive little cactus-esque figures that are generally alive. In City Folk, gamers might retailer their assortment in The Roost.

In New Leaf, Brewster’s position grew to become a bit extra concerned. He’s nonetheless there slinging espresso, however gamers who befriend him will get choices to order take-out, and then, finally, get a part-time job at The Roost, so that you, too, could make espresso for villagers. Regulars at The Roost can get specialised espresso, too.

What’ll he be like in New Horizons?

Well, the brief reply is that we don’t know but. Nintendo will host an Animal Crossing Direct in October — it doesn’t even have an actual date but — earlier than he arrives with a brand new, free content material replace in November.

However, it’s implied that The Roost will transfer again contained in the museum. The emblem, a inexperienced pigeon holding a crimson cup of espresso, was proven on the signal posted up within the museum, and following the clip, Nintendo had a display displaying his face. The blurred picture confirmed briefly throughout Thursday’s Direct is also the within of The Roost. Wherever it is, it positive does look cozy!

Given how constant Brewster’s position has been in previous entries within the franchise, it appears doubtless that he’ll be serving up espresso. Of course, there is at all times the possibility issues get switched up: In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, the cellular game, Brewster hosted an occasion known as Brewster’s Sweet Harvest, which handed out “vineyard” themed items to contributors — stuff like a barrel of grapes, and a trellis.

What’s the large deal?

It would possibly sound like Brewster hasn’t added a ton of gameplay to different video games within the Animal Crossing franchise, and that’s partially true. The espresso he serves doesn’t add any particular profit to a personality that purchases it; the inducement is that you simply’re in a position to befriend one other character within the game’s world. For me, Brewster’s presence felt so pure given the sense of each day ritual that draws me to the Animal Crossing franchise. I’ll pull up weeds, water my backyard, and get a espresso from Brewster. The Roost itself additionally appears like a group gathering spot, one other place the place you possibly can have new interactions with different villagers. Plus, Ok.Ok. Slider usually performs there! Get that canine out of the rain and into The Roost.

Plenty of oldsters additionally actually loved having that part-time job at The Roost in New Leaf. Serving up espresso is a enjoyable little minigame that feels in contrast to the rest at present provided in New Horizons, and numerous followers are desperate to see what Nintendo would possibly iterate on there.

Others are excited by the prospect of gyroids returning to the game, too. Because The Roost was a spot for gyroid storage in City Folk, some followers are hoping Nintendo will put this collection staple again into the game with New Horizons. If that occurs, it means a load of latest gadgets to search out and accumulate throughout the island — and a bunch of latest gameplay aims.

Is the rest coming alongside Brewster?

It appears doubtless! Given how lengthy Nintendo has gone and not using a substantial New Horizons replace, gamers are keen for one thing extra to sink their tooth into. During the Nintendo Direct on Thursday, Nintendo hinted that there’s extra to the replace than simply Brewster — alongside the picture of Brewster, there’s some textual content that reads “and more!”

As for what that “and more!” is referring to is anybody’s guess, however we’ll study extra on the Animal Crossing Direct in October. We’ll maintain you up to date on an actual date for that occasion.
