One Nintendo leaker has uncovered new information that suggests fan-favorite barista pigeon, Brewster, could be added to New Horizons this season.

A credible leaker for Nintendo's largest properties revealed that Brewster could be coming to the company's most recent life-simulator title, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Longtime fans will recognize this sea-green pigeon from his role as the lovable yet reserved coffee barista from previous iterations of the franchise. Brewster has been known to serve the player and their neighbors specialty crafted coffee brews in his cafe on the lower level of the museum.

New Animal Crossing: NH Leaks Suggest Brewster Release Date

The leaker, known on Twitter as Samus Hunter (@SamusHunter2), posted a short thread on Twitter detailing the information they had on several major Nintendo franchises last Saturday, Sept. 4. One of these was Animal Crossing: New Horizons, in which they stated the next update will "likely [introduce] Brewster and his bar."

Samus Hunter has predicted this specific update to go live in November "at maximum."

"The team has taken precautions to install the Halloween event without requiring a new update in case of delay after September," they explained.

Additionally, the bar will allegedly serve as a place for players to meet "old friends"—though it was no specified who these characters would be. Some fans have theorized that missing major NPCs such as Katrina the traveling fortune teller, axolotl psychologist Dr. Shrunk, and even Rover could make appearances. Others suspect other previously unused villagers will visit through the location. Perhaps even K.K. Slider could return to his old stage from Wild World?

Samus Hunter is best known for their correct release of information surrounding Monster Hunter 2. Since then, players have lent a bit of credibility to their claims—but DBLTAP cannot confirm the authenticity of this information at the time of writing.
