Good morning villagers, let’s watch the October Animal Crossing Direct

Animal Crossing Direct October 2021

Brewing some coffee has never been so fitting

Today’s the day for Animal Crossing players to hear about what’s coming for the village life sim. Nintendo is airing its October 2021 Animal Crossing Direct, to showcase the content arriving in Animal Crossing‘s future.

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct will start at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET. According to Nintendo, it’ll feature about 20 minutes of information on what’s coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in November.

As for what’s on the way? Currently, all signs point to Brewster, which makes sense given the early morning start time. It’ll be nice to check out what the bird has been up to while enjoying a morning cup of coffee.

As for what else, well, that’s up in the air. It’s a 20-minute Direct, so the new content could range from seasonal updates to even larger additions or quality-of-life tune-ups.

Seeing how Nintendo has supported Animal Crossing: New Horizon in the time since launch has been interesting to watch, as its rampant popularity pretty soon gave way to calls for more. To be fair, Animal Crossing provides a really good forum for social gatherings and hanging out online, in a time where there’s a great need for exactly that.

And still, even as people clamor for more content, just seeing what players are still doing with their islands is absolutely fascinating. Whether I dive back down the Animal Crossing: New Horizons rabbit hole again is largely going to be decided on whether my friends do the same. But for folks who are still happily checking in on their island every day, here’s hoping you get what you want out of today’s Direct.
