Visit Other Players' Islands By Dreaming


By sleeping on a bed in your home, you can visit other players' islands in your dream! Note that you need Nintendo Switch Online (Paid) to use this dreaming feature. If your island is visited by people, you can also get Dream Bell Exchange Tickets in return!

What You Can Do While Dreaming


Since you're simply dreaming, whatever you do while on another player's island will not be permanent! This means you can explore the island freely. You can say hi to the island residents, enjoy the scenery, and even get custom designs other players have made!

Dream Address Necessary To Visit Other Islands

In order to visit other players' islands in your dreams, you'll need a special code called a Dream Address. By sharing your Dream Address with your friends, you can showcase your island without worrying about other players making a mess!

Next Free Update Information

Free Fall Update

The next free update is scheduled for this fall. Potential villagers and content that may be added include the following:

※ This section includes speculation on upcoming content, based largely off previous games in the franchise.

List Of Characters Set To Be Added

CharacterEvent (Predictions)
・Halloween series of DIY recipes
FranklinFranklinHarvest Festival
・Harvest Festival series of DIY recipes
JingleJingleToy Day
・Toy Day series of DIY recipes
・Recipe for a Santa hat/clothes
・Festivale series of DIY recipes

The above events are fairly ubiquitous and are thus very likely to be added to the game later on. It's likely that these will be similar to Bunny Day, in that you'll have a 2 week limited period to collect special DIY recipes!

Villagers That Could Possibly Be Added

BrewsterBrewsterCould open a cafe
LunaLunaCould open up the Dream Suite, allowing you to travel to other players' islands.
WendellWendellMight give you special custom designs
KatrinaKatrinaCould read your fortune
KatieKatieCould give you a reward if you show her other islands
KappKapp'nCould take you on a special mystery island tour
HarrietHarrietCould give you special new hairstyle options
GracieGracieCould give you special clothes and furniture
PhineasPhineasCould give you balloons and a windmill
LyleLyleMight give you a special new challenge to do with the Happy Home Academy

New Feature Predictions



New Horizons has placed a lot of emphasis on the theme of DIY - there are tons of items for players to put together using materials they've gathered. There are also items which you can eat, but it's thus far not possible to actually make food. We think it's very possible that Cooking could be added to the game!
