Animal Crossing New Horizons is a huge success on Nintendo Switch and loyal fans are looking forward to the Nintendo Direct event.

The Animal Crossing Direct event is planned to focus exclusively on the game that has already sold millions of copies worldwide.

New expansions and free content updates have come in since the original launch, but Nintendo has the unique opportunity to inject more New Horizons into this game.

We already know that barista Brewster will make his debut before the end of 2021, but there really is room to expand the world of Animal Crossing further.

More Amiibo cards are expected to be announced, but much of this week’s Animal Crossing Direct will detail the upcoming November update.

This is the first major patch launched for the game since July and aims to bring a lot of new content before the end of the year.


Nintendo has confirmed that this week’s Animal Crossing Direct event will start at 3pm BST on Friday, October 15.

The Nintendo stream will last approximately 20 minutes and is expected to share news about what to expect in November and beyond.

A message from Nintendo confirms: “The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct airs October 15 at 7 a.m. PT! Hear about 20 minutes of information about the content coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in November.”

And it will be very easy to tune in and watch as Nintendo will be hosting the Animal Crossing Direct live on its YouTube and Twitch channels.

The Nintendo Switch OLED console is also available and the Animal Crossing team has provided this guide on how to move your island from one gaming device to another.


Make sure Animal Crossing: New Horizons is updated to the latest software version on your source system.

Download the Island Transfer Tool for Animal Crossing: New Horizons on your source system, if you haven’t already.

  • Transfer your user account credentials to the target Nintendo Switch system. This will transfer all user information and saved data except for the saved data from Animal Crossing: New Horizons to the target system.
  • Repeat this step for each user account. If you transfer all user accounts, a default account named “User” will remain on the source system.

  • Select Source on the source system.
  • Select Yes to confirm when your island name is displayed on the source system.
  • If Animal Crossing: New Horizons has not been updated to the latest software version, your console’s nickname will be displayed instead of your island name.

  • On the source system, select Continue. On the target system, select Continue.
  • When the target system is detected, select Transfer data to the source system.
