You can find Rover at the end of the maze in the May Day Tour. Like you, it seems like Tom Nook also sent him to the island to finish the maze!

May Day Event Info and Rewards

List of Items You Can Get From Rover

Exclusive Furniture


Get Rover's Briefcase

You can get the May Day-exclusive item, Rover's Briefcase after finishing the maze in the May Day Tour, and talking to Rover! May Day is a limited-time event so make sure you don't miss it!

What you want to do with the briefcase is up to you! It is a piece of furniture, so you can display it in your homes, or outside on your island!

Who is Rover?

Special Traveller Who Guides Players

In the past Animal Crossing games, Rover is a special character who talks to the player at the start of the game. Found on trains or buses, he's the one asking you for your name and gender.

His Role in New Horizons is Undetermined

The May Day event is new to Animal Crossing, and there were no other events in the past games that featured Rover, other than his role at the start of the game. We cannot say for certain what his role will be in New Horizons.

Future Appearance is Hinted!

When you talk to him on the May Day Tour, it seems that the maze will not be the last time where you see him. It could be highly possible that he can start appearing on your island as a special visitor, especially that he is good friends with Tom Nook.

Highly unlikely to live as a resident on your island

Although you can technically see Rover on an island tour, it is very unlikely that he will come to your island as a villager. Like Kicks and Celeste, he is a special character who has a role in the game.
