Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a huge success for Nintendo. First appearing back in March 2020, it quickly became one of the Switch's best-selling titles at 32.6 million sales, though thanks to a lack of "meaningful" content updates, fans haven't been entirely happy recently.
Many hoped for news during last night's Nintendo Direct and thankfully, we got a brief tease. Alongside the return of our favourite pigeon barista, Brewster, we're also getting an exclusive Animal Crossing Direct soon, with a new update scheduled for November. Here's what we know so far:

Animal Crossing Direct - What Can I Expect?
So far, Nintendo has confirmed the return of Brewster and his café, The Roost. That's now a section within Blathers Museum, but we've previously seen potential hints from dataminers. Unused vegetable files were found, as was a Gyroid section for the Museum.
