I'm not sure if anyone else had asked this yet, but what role (if any) will Kapp'n play in New Horizions? In PG and NL, he would take us to an island. However, NH puts us on a deserted island from the get-go. I'm curious about what Kapp'n's new role in NH may or may not be.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't show up at all really. since the airport is called Dodo Airlines, it seems like he probably won't be flying the airplane like most people had guessed.
he's never really been a super significant character before NL really, where they gave him a family and an island that everybody could go to. in the first game, if you didn't have a gameboy you'd never see him at all. in WW, he dropped you off in a taxi and you never saw him again (except maybe once in a while at the Roost). in CF he drove the bus, but I don't think he was very beloved by the fanbase in that game since his dialogue got repetitive fast.
still though, he DOES have an amiibo figure so clearly nintendo thought he was more important and significant than other series staples like Sable or any of the mail pelicans. my money is on him having SOME SORT of role, I just have no idea what it could be. maybe he just flies the airplane anyways despite the airline name.

"in CF he drove the bus, but I don't think he was very beloved by the fanbase in that game since his dialogue got repetitive fast."
Not to mention that his comments toward female players could get a tad creepy for an E-rated game.
I'd definitely be surprised to see him left out of the game completely after Nintendo expanded his character in New Leaf. We know so little about what areas will eventually be accessible, and it looks like you'll have to progressively unlock a lot of things, including things that have always been available since the beginning such as Able Sisters and the museum, which indicates that most characters will require unlocking. I do think that that will eventually include Kapp'n (unless he does turn out to play a role in the introductory sequence).
