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!

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.

The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
