The Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 update reintroduces beloved characters like Mr. Resetti, who makes his return from the previous game New Leaf.

His original purpose in the series is that of a character who warns the player not to quit without saving too much. Resetti's dialogue will get angrier the more the player "resets" their game.

In previous games, Resetti can be found, along with his brother, in the Reset Center. This location is one that can be visited in City Folk and placed as a Public Works Project in New Leaf.

Prior to the 2.0 update of New Horizons, Resetti was notably absent from the game.

With New Horizons' autosave feature, he no longer had a job in warning the player to save their game and Nintendo officially announced in an E3 2019 interview that he had been fired.

This announcement left players disappointed about the lack of the character.

But, in that interview, New Horizons project lead Aya Kyogoku also stated, "We also believe that Mr. Resetti is looking for a new job after his layoff. So please look forward to that."

And today, Resetti can be found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by inviting him to The Roost via the Amiibo phone.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Amiibos can be purchased at Walmart, Amazon, Target, and Best Buy.
