Trying to work out when you'll have to deal with a spooky visitor in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Well, don't you fret. There's some element of randomness to it, but there is a mandated Wisp Animal Crossing New Horizons time and here's what we know about it. 

Wisp Animal Crossing New Horizons Time - When Does He Show Up

If you're not already familiar with some of the visitors that will come to your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we actually have a master guide of everyone that's going to show up at any given time. If you're someone who's not sure about what to do when he shows up, well, we've got some tips on that but more importantly you're going to want to make sure that you're there at the time that Wisp shows up. 

Our sources say that Wisp can be found floating around your deserted island any time from 10 PM onwards. Essentially, he'll hang around until 5 AM, which is when the day essentially resets and the dark turns to dawn, heralding some sunlight hours which means that it's time for ghosts to get lost. If you want to know when you can see Wisp, it's going to have to be after 10 PM, and it'll be random as to whether or not he shows up. There's no guarantee that he's going to come every night, so you're going to want to keep your eyes peeled and to be wandering around at exactly the right time. 

Once you actually run into Wisp, you're going to scare the living crap out of him. A little bit literally. He's going to shoot out spirits when he's startled by you, and much like Gulliver's bad luck with transponder parts, you're going to have to find 5 spirit pieces belonging to Wisp so that he can put himself back together and get out of here. These are essentially going to be spread out around the island, and you have to catch them with your net as they float around. They don't move the quickest, so this should be easy. Once you've returned the pieces to Wisp, he'll give you the option of him bringing you back something new or something expensive as thanks. Personally, we'd go with new since it'll be something that you haven't encountered before, and ghosts don't really know the value of, uh, anything.

Now that you have our guide to the mandated Wisp Animal Crossing New Horizons time that you can encounter this ghost, it should be easier for you to hunt him down and get his cool reward items after. If you're wanting another way to add to the livability score of your island for K.K. Slider's visit that goes beyond interior and exterior decorations, why not also check out our guide to breeding flowers below? We think that it's a pretty easy way to get the ball rolling when it comes to decorating the landmass and making it much more appealing.
