With our Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers guide, you’ll be able to learn all about getting more residents to your island. There are multiple ways of doing so and all of them require you to upgrade Resident Services first. Once that’s done, you get complete control over who can move into your island and where they get to live, etc. Let’s go over different methods of getting more villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Get more villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
As mentioned earlier, there are multiple methods of getting new residents in New Horizons but the first thing to do is to upgrade your Resident Services. Once done, you’ll be able to do the following:
1. Visit other islands
There are plenty of deserted islands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with residents whom you can invite to your island. To meet these people, you’ll need to get Nook Miles Tickets from the Nook Stop terminal at the Town Hall.
After buying a ticket for 2,000 Miles, head over to the airport and fly to another island. On these deserted islands, you’ll find people wandering about. Simply speak to them and invite them to your island.
2. Using Amiibo
This method requires Animal Crossing: New Horizons Amiibo figurines. To get started, you need to head over to the Nook Stop Terminal once you’ve built the campsite on your island (more on it later).
Doing so will present the “invite to campsite” option after which you’ll need to use your Amiibo figurine and done.
3. Build a campsite to attract visitors
After you’ve built a bridge and upgraded the Resident Services, you’ll get the option to build a campsite. You can head over to the link to learn more about it.
Once you’ve built it, you’ll attract some people to your island whom you’ll be able to invite them to your island – similar to how you do it after visiting other islands.
These are all the different ways of getting new villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can also check our complete coverage of the game by heading to our Animal Crossing: New Horizons wiki.
