The company will reveal more details about the update in an Animal Crossing Direct presentation on October 15th. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming event, including how to watch it and what to expect.

Nintendo is streaming Animal Crossing Direct on its official Twitch and YouTube channels. We also want the feed embedded below on the day it is sent, so you can bookmark this page and tune in to watch Animal Crossing Direct right here on CNET.
What to expect
Animal Crossing Direct will offer more information on the New Horizons’ November update, which marks the game’s first major content update since July. Although Nintendo has not yet revealed many details about the update, we know an important addition to the game:.
During its Nintendo Direct in September, Nintendo briefly showed a newly added entrance to Brewster’s cafe, The Roost, inside the museum, confirming that the cafe has finally been added. We’ll probably get our first full look at the cafe and what you can do inside it under Animal Crossing Direct, along with other new features and items that the update introduces to the game.
There’s also a chance we could hear more about the next wave of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards. Shortly after Nintendo Direct in September, the company revealed on Twitter that a fifth series of Amiibo cards is being prepared and that details about the cards will be “announced at a later date”. While there is no guarantee that the new card series will be discussed during Animal Crossing Direct, the presentation would be an appropriate time to reveal more information about it.
