A lot of returning characters have made their way into the latest Nook adventure, but many are wondering where Brewster is in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Though Nintendo hasn't made an official announcement about Brewster's return alongside his coffee shop, a few clever players have uncovered hints about his epic return.
Where Is Brewster In Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
For those that are familiar with the Animal Crossing timeline, Brewster and his love of coffee first made his appearance with Animal Crossing: Wild Word. Since then, he's been in very game thus far except for New Horizons, but as seen with recent updates, more and more fan-favorites are making their way to our islands.
It seems as though some villagers are now making mention of Brewster in game. Will he be making a come back soon? Video via @sliceofcy. Let us know if you’ve seen Brewster mentioned in game! #ACNH #AnimalCrossing pic.twitter.com/axG8LayJSI— 🌴ACNH Island News 🏝 (@ACNewHorizonsEN) April 9, 2020
Speculation on the internet kicked up about Brewster's return when a dialogue option from Clay mentioned his overly attached love of coffee and drinks more than he probably should, a direct reference to Brewster's coffee shop. Pair that with Millie's "Imagine, you are at the Roose and no one is there. All you can do is get a drink with Brewster."
Twitter user ZachEvans97 also has an interesting thread that details the links between the missing shops and possible future updates:
YOU GUYS, I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING SUPER INTERESTING AND INSANE.— ℤ𝕒𝕔𝕙 𝔼𝕧𝕒𝕟𝕤 (@ZachEvans97) April 3, 2020
So I did some digging, and get this.
THERE’S A COMMON LINK BETWEEN A LOT OF THE MISSING SHOPS/NPCS THAT MIGHT HINT AT A NEW FEATURE IN THE FUTURE.
With the recent updates like the Bunny Day Event and Cherry Blossoms, it looks like Nintendo is still committed to regular updates despite COVID-19 disruptions. With fan-favorites already making their way to our islands, it stands to reason that the company will be keeping the interest of players through the slow and steady stream of returning familiar faces.
While we don't have any datamined goodness that usually accompanies speculation like this, there is enough canon in-game dialogue to support the theory that Brewster may be the next arrival to surprise and delight fans. As for the game itself, Animal Crossing New Horizons is available now exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Need some help?
