Animal Crossing New Horizons had an incredible year in 2020, selling over 26 million units since its release in March.

In a commitment to keep the game updated and fresh over the year, New Horizons has seen a flurry of updates in recent months.

With the brand new January update arriving soon; players are hoping a beloved villager is coming with this update.

Of course, we are talking about Resetti.

Here's when we can expect his arrival on your island!


Secret Message

For those who do not know, Resetti has not been confirmed to be present within New Horizons or behind the rescue services as he was in previous games.

But now, a new Reddit image posted by u/starterxy has found a hidden message within the game if you try and call emergency services with zero Nook Miles.

So, it appears even with the auto-save feature present within the game; Resetti may be within the game after all. 

In previous versions of Animal Crossing, Restti would appear if the player had turned off their game without saving.

Originally, this was implemented to discourage cheaters who would reset the game and turn the system time backwards to make the daily stock at Tom Nook's store change.

If a player resets the game enough, Mr Resetti will want the player to type out things like, "I am stupid." and "I stink."


For now, we can only wait and see for when Resetti will make an appearance on our island!
