Animal Crossing: New Horizons NPC chatter has fans hoping Brewster and more are on the way

Classic features returning?

Nintendo always had plans to release new content for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but you can bet they're working extra hard on the updates with the game being such an insane hit. While we don't have details on what goodies are coming our way, fans are thinking in-game characters are giving hints on what's to come.

In particular, players have been encountering NPCs who reference the art gallery section of Blather's museum, as well as Brester's delicious coffee. Now these could just be callbacks to previous Animal Crossing games, but again, fans are hoping these are minor teases of classic features that will make a return. Nintendo isn't talking just yet, but hopefully they confirm the speculation in the near future.

Convoy - more footage

Convoy is a tactical roguelike inspired by Mad Max and FTL in which you cross a wasteland in search of parts for your broken ship.

Presented in pixel art and set in a future post-apocalyptic setting, Convoy is a squad based tactical roguelike in its core. You travel with your combat vehicles and convoy across a wasteland to find parts needed to repair your broken spaceship. During your journey you will encounter strangers in randomized scenarios by picking up radio signals.

Depending on the choices you make, signals can either lead to tactical combat, text based dialogue or chance based role-play. Whatever choice you make, you need to keep your convoy and its cargo safe from raiders, privateers and other enemies. Keep upgrading your vehicles, as death is permanent in Convoy.
