I know we've all heard 1000 times about how much we want back the special NPCs, such as Gracie Grace, Katrina, etc.

However, as time goes on, I genuinely MISS these characters....and their buildings! Of course Gracie Grace could come stand in the plaza like Kicks, and Katrina could set up a tent. But I miss the upscale department store and the buildings that went along with these characters; the post office for Pete and Pelly (and Phyllis), the salon for Shampoodle, Club LoL for Dr. Shrunk. Sure, they could come stand in the plaza or wander around the island, but having the stores makes the world have more depth and just feel more inhabited in general.

I know people are going to say "go back to New Leaf then," but that's not the point--I genuinely love New Horizons and am still having a blast with it! Just feeling nostalgic is all. How do you guys feel about it?

I'm also nostalgic for the old NPCs. I would love to see all of them come back if only for special occasions like they did for Reese And Cyrus. I especially miss Brewster! I hope we get his coffee shop back soon! And I was always happy to see Katrina! Gracie grace wasn't my favorite, but it would be nice if she came to visit. I much prefer Label. It's fun to try and do the best on her challenges! Oh! It would be cool if Chip came for a special diving contest, it's kind of sad that the deepsea creatures don't get featured during the tournaments.

I personally miss Copper and Booker! Even so, I still love New Horizons! It’s an escape from everything going on in the world.

My best friend and I were just talking about this! I think with the theme of this game, it's difficult to strike a balance with "Deserted Island Getaway" and a whole mass of NPCs constantly on the island. I actually wouldn't mind a few more visiting vendors though, because it would add some variety to the game, since the current visitor rotation is getting kind of stale for me now.

I would also love a few brick and mortar locations for some series NPCs who haven't shown up in New Horizons yet. I love the idea they went for with starting from scratch and building the island up into something you're proud of, but I think this idea can be expanded upon even further by inviting vendors and other NPCs to build an actual shop/building to populate your island. I think it's just hard because we have to remember that this game can have a max of 8 players living on an island, so there needs to be space saved for potential new houses and not new NPC buildings.

I actually don't think the "Main Street" mechanic of City Folk and New Leaf was bad by any means, and I would actually like something similar in New Horizons. Maybe something accessed either by seaplane, or a boat that can be docked at the pier (I miss Kapp'n so much, and this would be a good way to bring him back!).

It was great to see Reese and Cyrus, but for me I feel like they really missed the mark with their potential. This game has a focus on crafting and customization, and that's right in Reese and Cyrus' wheelhouse. Surely, they could be implemented in some way to help with crafting and customization instead of a wedding month event. I really do believe that Brewster and an actual coffee shop will become a reality soon though. I think that will be one of the features revealed in the Fall update. Here's to hoping!

^ Agreed!

I personally loved the idea of having a Main Street separate from the rest of our villages. I’m really hoping Kapp’n will eventually be at our dock to take us to a shopping island.

I’m also surprised at the way they used Reese and Cyrus. Given that ReTail was all about customization, I can’t believe they weren’t implemented better into the game. I’d love for Cyrus to offer customization options on furniture from Nooks that we can’t change ourselves

I would love if we had access to another island, maybe like a touristy peninsula of the mainland (obv, we wouldn't be able to go out to the mainland, but whatev), and all the shops that we don't have are there, kinda like mainstreet from CF. Or just have a "farmers market" style set-up that we can place on our islands, and that's where the visitors set up shop when they rotate through. I'd also love to have a workshop that we can place ( I already have a makeshift outdoor workshop that's fenced off with tables for materials and a workbench), where we can store crafting materials for everyone on the island to access, and we can control what guests can use... maybe best friends can use stuff if they need something, but not take it home with them. And since it'd be run by Reese and Cyrus, we could craft more than one at a time, or build and customize all in one step.

Just chiming in here as I'm feeling super nostalgic, plus I restarted New Leaf today!
As most people have said, I really did enjoy having Main Street in New Leaf or the City in CF. I think it's great to have somewhere else to go away from your island/town and I also love and miss the NPC buildings!
I'm missing Katrina a lot and Gracie's department store. I really hope there will be more things to come and help expand the gaming experience in New Horizons.
I like it, it's aesthetically pleasing but I just can't help but feel that so much is missing. Now that I've had some months to properly digest it.
I think that's even the reason I decided to start New Leaf back up.
I guess we'll see what else happens and I hope the fall update will be more than just Jack.

^^I actually have a few friends who have restarted a new town in New Leaf after the release of New Horizons mainly because they feel as if it's an AC game where there's more to do there to keep their interest.

I'm also really hoping that the Fall update has more than just Jack. I understand their model of trying to keep everyone interested with New Horizons by slowly bringing in "new" content to keep things fresh, but we're half a year in now, and it still feels like so much is missing. Terraforming and redoing my island has kept me busy enough, but I don't want to keep reworking my island over and over again to stay interested in the game.

I would also love Gracie Grace being in the game, because it would give me somewhere to put all of the millions of Bells I've accumulated since paying off my final loan months ago! It was ridiculous when you think about it, but there's something fun about going to her store in CF and blowing hundreds of thousands of bells on one furniture item. She would also fit perfectly onto a more populated area, like a mainland peninsula, as was suggested before.
