A group of Villagers, Tom Nook and Isabelle stand outside of the Town Hall in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The caption reads 'All Starter Villagers'.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows players to customize almost everything on their island. From their house to the trees and crops around the island, players have nearly limitless options when it comes to making their island their own space. Players will also meet a wide range of colourful characters as they begin to turn their island into a paradise. But who will you meet first?

When you first begin your island adventure, you will be joined by two other villagers also embarking on a new journey out in the middle of nowhere. While there is likely nothing inherently wrong with these characters, some players have wondered if there are other villagers that could join in on the fun.

In this guide, we've explained all the potential villagers that may join you as you develop your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
