The eight new villagers were teased during the 2.0 update Nintendo Direct, and have now been fully revealed. on the game’s official Twitter, though more information has been provided in Pocket Camp itself (and as reported by Siliconera). You can find the rundown on all the new villagers and their personalities below.
Ione (Normal) – Ione’s tail looks just like a starry night sky. She’s usually pretty quiet, but she’ll talk your ear off if you ask her about constellations.
Quinn (Sisterly) – Quinn is known for her supercool style. To maintain her reputation, she always gets dressed up to go out, even if she’s just going to the grocery store.
Cephalobot (Smug) – With his metallic body and sci-fi flair, Cephalobot looks like he can shoot laser beams out of his eyes. Wait… He can’t actually do that, right?
Marlo (Cranky) – Rumor has it that Marlo runs some sort of underground organization. No one knows for sure because everyone is too afraid to ask.
Sasha (Lazy) – Sasha loves taking selfies. He makes the exact same face in every photo, but that doesn’t stop him from taking about a hundred a day.
Shino (Peppy) – Shino seems like the quiet, mysterious type—before she starts talking, that is. She tries to befriend everyone she meets and will probably tell them her whole life story in the process.
Petri (Snooty) – Petri is always doing some kind of research. When she’s close to a breakthrough, she will stay in her laboratory for days at a time…so maybe bring her a snack.
Tiansheng (Jock) – Tiansheng insists that his shoes help him run faster. He’s always running to his destinations, so he never takes them off…which makes it hard to test his theory.
What seems to have caught many fans off guard is that Sasha is a boy. Despite his long eyelashes and overly-long jacket almost forming a dress, he is a male character; even his Japanese name is Mitchell (ミッチェル). In New Horizons, players can gift any kind of top for a Villager to wear- be it dresses, jackets, and more.
Finally, the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will also be hosting a special event until November 10th. The event will allow players to obtain new decorations and clothing items based around New Horizons. Even the upcoming Happy Homes Paradise DLC seems to be involved.
