Updated on September 25th 10:10am: Yesterday we reported on the teasing of four new Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp villagers. Now we know exactly who they are.

As first reported by Nintendo Everything, the new characters have now appeared in game. They are: Ribbot, Claudia, Alice, and Rocco.

Fans of the game will be happy to know that the new villagers all come fit with their own unlockable skills. We get a hologram machine for Ribbot, whirlpool bath for Claudia, pawn for Alice, and cement mixer for Rocco.

Whilst the names give us a decent idea of what the skills entail, it'll always be more fun to try them out yourself. So now's the time to go ahead and jump back into your farm.

Earlier today, the Animal Crossing Twitter account released an image featuring four silhouetted animal friends. If previous announcements are anything to go by, we can expect these new characters to be released fairly soon.

At the start of the month, it was revealed that the game has reached a neat $50 million in worldwide revenue and that it has been installed more than 25 million times – very impressive numbers indeed.

With the recently announced Animal Crossing for Switch, this is proving to be a very exciting year for fans of Nintendo's delightful series. Plus, now might also be the best time to jump in and start playing Pocket Camp, thanks to the ongoing Splatoon crossover event.

So, if you haven't given this one a go already, you can download it now for free on the App Store or Google Play.
