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.Original story continues below...
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.
Will you look at that…it’s a flock of new friends! Yep, four new animals are on the way to the campground. Look at these sneaky silhouettes and then take a guess at who they might be. ???????? #PocketCamp pic.twitter.com/Y8uWyWkTKo — Animal Crossing UK (@AC_Isabelle) 24 September 2018
