Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought out the big guns in its final update. The massive 2.0.0 patch added so much to the game, it’s too big to go over it all. With the addition of the new content in the patch, there’s a lot to handle. With all the new NPCs running around, trying to build houses for them is a lot to deal with. Having to also manage all the new crafting and cooking options can be a handful too.
Brewster is an NPC who was first introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World. The Pigeon pall that he is has a very sharp and distinct style. He has always been found at the Roost Café in previous games, and the same is true in New Horizons. Brewster appears in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf. He once again brings his coffee shop to the island in this iteration.
How to find Brewster
You need to have at least a three-star rating on your island to do this. Once you have that done, you can then focus on the museum. Unlock the art wing on your museum, that’s where the Roost will be added. When you load up the new update, head to the museum and talk to Blathers. He will ask you to help him reunite with his old friend.
You then need to spend time hunting down mystery islands either via Dodo Airlines or Kappn’s boat tours. Eventually, you will find Brewster on one of these islands. You then need to talk to him to invite him back home. Once you’re back, head over to the Museum and speak with Blathers. Help him out and he will construct the new wing.
The Roost is a 24/7 shrine to the caffeine gods. You can head in anytime and spend 200 bells on a nice drink. Keep visiting and drinking his coffee each day to unlock new drink options as well. You can also invite your friends over if you want. But what most folks want to do is invite villagers to the Roost.
How to invite villagers to the Roost
In order to invite over to the Roost, pick up the amiibo phone. You’ll be asked to scan a character’s card or their amiibo. You will then need to touch the NFC device to the reader location on the controller or scanner. You can use cards, amiibo, NFC apps, and even commercial solutions like the Powertag to do this. It’s just like inviting a villager to the campsite, the method is just a bit different.
You can then sit and chat with your villagers about life and the hassles they have. And no, you can’t use this method to bring the new villagers to your island.
