If you’re wondering where Celeste is, or when the next time Redd will dock at your town in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ve come to the right place – we’ve got everything you need to know about all the game’s visitors.

NPC visitors in New Horizons add a variety of different features when they appear on your island. For example, Daisy Mae sells turnips, K.K. Slider performs a song, and Leif brings a wagon filled with flowers and bushes. They don’t appear all of the time, and you’ve probably found yourself wondering when you’ll see them next – this can be especially true for Celeste, as she gives out DIY recipes.

Some characters appear more often than others, and it can feel like some rarely show up at all. There is actually a way to calculate who could be coming to your island when, though, and we’ve got all the details down below.

There are a variety of visitors in AC:NH.

Reddit user ‘8BitBish’ is the genius behind understanding how the visitor system works, as they put together a handy graphic that details just how often and who will be coming on what days.

Saharah, the mysterious wallpaper and flooring selling camel, is due to appear in your town weekly without fail, and so is Leif, and the shoe merchant Kicks. K.K. performs his songs on a Saturday evening, and Daisy Mae brings her turnips every Sunday morning.

The way Redd, Label, Gulliver, C.J., and Flick work are a little bit different. Two of the five NPCs can be found on your island each week, and the three that didn’t show will have priority the next.

As for Wisp the ghost and Celeste, they only arrive at night – the former showing up randomly after 8PM, and the star-gazing owl making an appearance when there’s shooting stars and meteor showers in the sky.

Having it all laid out is actually a big help, as it can sometimes feel like some characters haven’t visited in forever – now you know why!

Animal Crossing’s latest outing, New Horizons, was the breakout hit of 2020. Since its debut in March, the lovable Nintendo title has taken over social media as players around the world share their unique creations.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Pokemon fans praised the creator’s work, such as one user who exclaimed, “This is so cool!!! You did an amazing job on these.” Another player agreed and wrote, “Wow! I heard the music in my head as soon as I saw the pic! Great Job!”

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
