Meeting a New Friend

After you’ve helped Nook build and furnish the new island homes, a new villager will move in the next day! Nook will also announce this during the island-wide broadcast.

Head over to the plots you built yesterday and look for the plot that now has a house on it. If you built your houses across the river, then you will also get the chance to walk across your brand new log bridge.

Each villager has their own house, and they all look completely different.

Your new villager will spend their first day on the island in their homes, as they’ll be busy unpacking! You can still pop in to say hello though, they’ll definitely appreciate the warm welcome.

Go say hi to your new friend!

Sold Plots!

You’ll also find that the other plots are now reserved for other villagers. If you interact with the sign in front of the plots, you’ll be able to see who’s about to move in.

You’ll soon have more friends joining your island!
