Apparently, ACNH has 383 villagers, which is more than the original release of ACNL (which had 333) but less than its total after the Welcome Amiibo update (which was 399).

We already know that the Sanrio-themed villagers appear to be goners, and we can probably extrapolate from that that the other third-party collaboration villager, Felyne, might not be coming back either, so we can probably safely subtract all of them from the total.

I wonder if more new/returning villagers will be added by way of updates?

Really hoping that we get more villagers via DLC updates. I'm sure we'll receive new cross-over villagers of some sort for future collaborations. 383 at launch is pretty nice, though.

the base game in NL had 333 villagers, and the welcome amiibo update added 50 "regular" villagers, making a total of 383. we already know of at least 7 new villagers that have been added to NH.

the tweet that mentions 383 villagers says that nook is writing 383 letters inviting all the old members of nook homes to the island getaway package. I'm pretty sure that there will be more than 383 villagers, and that this information is just confirming that all the regular villagers from NL will be returning

considering they said new amiibo will become compatible with updates, I think special villagers like the splatoon and zelda ones will likely be added in the future. hopefully the sanrio and monster hunter ones will be too.

oh, the tweet was just posted in english

"Thank goodness it's Friday, as they say! Yes, yes! I hope everyone has a fun weekend! We're busy sending information about the Deserted Island Getaway Package to our Nook's Homes customers. That's a whopping 383 letters... and we're pouring our heart & soul into each & every one!"

any new villagers added would not be considered a Nook's Homes customer, bc they weren't in NL and never used Nook's Homes' services

I saw this earlier today and honestly had no idea there were that many villagers in Animal Crossing, I thought there was ~150-200 in total

And tbh having a lot of villagers isn't really necessarily a good thing, one of the common complaints about New Leaf was that a lot of villagers started saying the same lines depending on their personality type, I didn't play New Leaf for very long compared to most people here but I definitely experienced this a few times. I'd rather have a cut down "roster" with more developed and unique personalities.

Chiyoko - Oh whoah, good spot, as usual! It keeps throwing me off that they're (charmingly) rigidly sticking to writing all of this game's promotional copy in-character - you are absolutely right that the number only refers to returning villagers. I need to start shifting gears when I'm reading this stuff, I swear!

Pikminsatellite - There were around 400 or so Animal Crossing Amiibo cards (though these also included the NPCs), so I knew that it was around that number.

As for the repeating lines, that's pretty much always been an issue, and it's not unique to New Leaf; If you have more developed personalities and less villagers, then you lose one of the series' fundamental features, since the Pokemon-esque* amount of villagers give higher odds of most players having unique towns under normal circumstances. After all, it's the players' connections that make the villagers what they appear to be, more than their lines, anyway.

*I know that some folks out there make it their in-game mission to try to cycle through and meet as many characters as possible, so this "Gotta Be Neighbours With 'em All!" thing always springs to mind for me.

Would that number (383) exclude old villagers (not in New Leaf) returning to the series? Like Aziz? (a name I picked off the top of my head and not because I really want him to return )

Also, that definitely means Boris is back right? I keep hoping each new batch of confirmed villagers includes him.

^this means Boris is definitely back, but we don't know if Aziz will return, since Boris was part of the welcome amiibo update but Aziz wasn't. I'm hoping that we'll get more old villagers returning because I love Woolio and he wasn't part of the update either. luckily this doesn't mean that more old characters won't be returning, just that all the animals that were in NL will be returning

Woolio is definitely a cool one that should come back. (and yeah Meow and Bow are also interesting)

I was looking at the AC wiki and I saw this really cool looking Alligator called Pironkon as well: Pironkon I just think he looks neat.

I was also thinking about how it might be likely that Champ will return....since Porter doesn't seem to have an obvious role in this new game.

It was, yes - as if the different names and personalities didn't do that already. (No, I never understood that theory.)

If memory serves, their birthdays are different, right?

I am honestly gutted that it doesn't look like Klaus will be in the game. It's bummed me out so much that I have honestly become less excited for the game - overreaction or not it's just fact. I have contemplated not getting it a few times now when I think about this (I was/will be buying an entire console just for this game so that's a lot of money for a game that cut out one of my favorite features).

Between this and me really, really not being impressed with the themed console (I can't be the only one who hates the black edged screen clash with the adorable theme colors?), and waiting and waiting and waiting for this game for years...I am less excited than ever. And that's really sad as I am closer and closer to release.

I have been searching for his appearance on any lists that get uploaded. None of them are 100% and a lot of the lists are bits and pieces (same with photos) but I haven't come across his name once anywhere except the Wiki that include him. The reason I still question it is because it's shows NH on his profile, but on the confirmed villager list he's not listed. I am trying to get confirmation at this point and I am not finding it. I really hope that it's just because he's not that popular and I turn out to be wrong though! Someone please make me wrong!

Edited no less than 5 million times because I can't spell tonight.

Even so...wasn't Champ the only City Folk villager that didn't make the jump to New Leaf? It's hard not to see a connection there.

They have the same appearance at the very least, even if they're not the same character that would probably be reason enough to exclude Champ.

OK, so the tweet only specified that the letters Nook was sending was to those who were "Nook's homes customers" which can only mean that those are New Leaf villagers as the older gen villagers (GC exclusive, e+ etc.) never had a Nooks Home (a NL exclusive shop). We already know that the game has Amiibo support AND we've already had a look at, at least 7 new villagers (bear, horse, sheep and elephant in the Direct and more on the game case that was leaked) so that's well over 383. What the tweet was essentially saying is that Nook was sending a letter to New Leaf villagers who own a home with him and telling them he has a new Deserted Island Getaway Package that they can take advantage of; thus, why we see our neighbor's from NL in NH. They've moved! You'll see all your familiar faces plus more, don't worry!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it's actually been confirmed - just heavily implied.

^I mean yeah, it is heavily implied directly from official sources. it's heavily implied in the same way that showing 8 characters playing together heavily implied that there would be 8 player multiplayer before they officially outright said "there is 8 player multiplayer"

I would say that showing eight-player multiplayer counts as a confirmation that eight-player multiplayer will be a feature. Again, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the only reason that people are assuming that all New Leaf villagers will return is that the number they've shown happens to be the exact same as the number of villagers in New Leaf (not counting Ganon and those other dumb villagers from other franchises).

forgottenpixel tbh the only reason I knew he was in the direct was because when I saw him my brain automatically thought "I bet that person from the pocket camp boards who loves Klaus is happy to see that" I forget most of the other villagers that showed up, but Klaus stood out to me


707penguin it's because 383 is the exact number PLUS it's accompanied by nook saying he's writing 383 invitations to the getaway package to all his Nook's Homes customers. the only animals that would be Nook's Home's customers are ones that were in NL, because NL is the only game that had Nook's Homes in it (other than HHD, but HHD had the same base 333 villagers that NL had before the update)

plus they don't really remove villagers for no reason anymore. the only villager to have existed in a game more recent than the GC/N64 games and get removed was Champ, and that was just because of the whole Champ/Porter thing. every other character that was in WW or CF has never been cut. all cut villagers except for champ never made it past the gamecube. it makes sense that the 16 missing villagers would be the 16 special ones, because they're the only ones that would have a reason to be cut

But how??!! I am so very subtle about my Klaus love too...



+-----+

And just to clarify (to all)...

The reason I wasn't able to find the amazing holy grail worthy Klaus clip above is because I am really, really trying to ignore all the game 'spoilers'. I could only do Google searches with his name and obviously that didn't work. Heh. I absolutely love NL but I feel like a little of the release day gameplay wasn't as exciting and new as it could have been because I had read up on everything about the game beforehand. So I am going in to this game pretty much blind as a bat.
