This guide to increasing the number of villagers on your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) will teach you how and when you can get more villagers. Methods such as using amiibos to call villagers or meeting villagers during a mystery island tour will be explained as well. Read on to find out more!
List of Contents
To get to a 3-Star rating on your island, you should get at least 6 villagers on your island. You can have up to 10 villagers on your island.
If you want new neighbors, you can choose to kick a villager out.
|Methods of Getting New Villagers|
The first method of bringing in new villagers is to go and find them on a Mystery Tour. Every now and then, you will come across someone during a mystery tour, and if you go up and talk to them, then invite them to your island, they will begin living on your island a few days later.
The second method of getting more residents is to invite visitors who have randomly dropped by your island to live there. You can achieve this after upgrading Resident Services. If you already have a vacant house in your town, random visitors will drop by from time to time.
The third method of increasing the number of visitors on your island involves using amiibos to call them. After upgrading your Resident Services facility, you can construct a campsite, which will allow you to call in whatever villagers you want through the use of amiibos. If you invite the characters that show up here to live on your island, they will comply and become a new resident.
Upgraded Resident Services is required to use this feature.
For the rest of the game, you can always talk to Tom Nook to put up land for sale. This will cost you 10,000 Bells so be sure to have that on hand before you proceed. He will give you a housing kit for you to place, and you do not need to provide furniture for those.
You can invite a villager or wait for someone to move in. When someone moves into that lot, you will get a mail about your new neighbor and you will receive 1,000 Nook Miles.
Before new villagers can live on your island, Tom Nook will give you a Housing Kit, and you will select the location for their house. A villager who wants the island will call Tom Nook to request to move there, and once their house has been completed, they will come to move on to your island.
After setting up plots of land, a villager will move in 1 to 2 days, or even the next day right away if you have invited someone via the methods above.
When a villager moves out, the plot of land will be available for others to move in.
