Nintendo is rolling out a new update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons in November, and we’ll get a closer look at the new content next week. The company will reveal more details about the update in an Animal Crossing Direct on Oct. 15. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming presentation, including how to watch it and what to expect.
Animal Crossing Direct start time
The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct airs on Friday, Oct. 15. The stream begins at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET and runs for about 20 minutes.
How to watch
Nintendo is streaming the Animal Crossing Direct on its official Twitch and YouTube channels. We’ll also have the stream embedded below on the day it airs, so you can bookmark this page and tune in to watch the presentation right here on CNET.
What to expect
The Animal Crossing Direct will offer more information on New Horizons’ November update, which marks the game’s first major content update since July. While Nintendo hasn’t revealed many details about the update yet, we do know one major addition it’s bringing to the game:.
During the September Nintendo Direct, Nintendo briefly showed off a newly added entrance to Brewster’s cafe, The Roost, inside the museum, confirming the cafe is finally being added. We’ll likely get our first full look at the cafe and what you can do inside it during the Animal Crossing Direct, along with any other new features and items the update will introduce to the game.
There’s also a chance we could hear more about the next wave of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards. Shortly after the September Nintendo Direct, the company revealed on Twitter that a fifth series of Amiibo cards is in the works and that details about the cards would be “announced at a later time.” While there’s no guarantee the new card series will be discussed during the Animal Crossing Direct, the presentation would be a fitting time to reveal more information about it.
