The latest instalment of the Animal Crossing series arrived on the Switch last year, and accumulated a large community of players during the pandemic. But despite its popularity, fans were disappointed to see that one of the characters from the previous games was missing.

The game gets a number of updates throughout the year that features new tasks and in-game season changes. (Looking to get your hands on your own Nintendo Switch?
