After the September Direct where they showed more footage for New Horizons, I have seen that you start out with two villagers. At the Treehouse event, the villager had Hamlet and Fuchsia. And in the direct, they had Bill and Tammy. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it definitely seems to be the case. It makes sense because you’re on a deserted island with barely anything there, but this makes New Horizons to have the least amount of starting villagers, beating Wild World by one. What do you think about this? Who would you want your two villagers to be? In future titles, would there be a chance of starting out with one villager?
Negativity is a part of you. It'll always be by your side.
I personally like the idea of starting off with only two villagers. at the start of each game, one of the most fun things is anticipating new residents that show up roughly every other day. with only two starters, that means that period of constantly getting new villagers should be longer.
also I'm pretty sure they did confirm in an interview somewhere that yes, you do start out with only two villagers, and that those two villagers paid for the same desert island escape package that you did, so it's both of their first days on the island too. I think unless they go with the deserted island concept again, we likely won't start with as few animals as we do in this game.
as for which two I'd want, I don't really have any strong preferences. I like nearly all of the animal designs, and even the ugly ones usually have really funny facial expressions. I usually end up eventually liking whoever I get.

Ooh, interesting. I don't think there would be a game that starts off with one villager however, because it would be boring only having one villager to talk to and they wouldn't be able to mention anyone else in conversations, even if it were to be only for a day. I hope my two starting villagers will be both cats, preferably Olivia and Kid Kat.
For my two starting villagers, I supposed I'd love to have Phil and Callie! Phil my favorite villager (and best friend), and Callie was one of my original New Leaf villagers and the only one that hasn't moved out by now . I don't mind the randomness, though! It'd be awesome to have Phil join me from the start but I'm sure I'll come across him eventually even if he's not a starting villager.
I love the element of surprise that comes with starting the game!! Tammy and Lopez are in my NL town already, so it would be fun to get them again, but I do like having different villagers for each game!
