If Animal Crossing: New Horizons isn't the first entry you've played in Nintendo's lifestyle simulation series before, you'll probably know that quite a lot is missing from the game in its current state.

While there's no guarantee certain characters and buildings will return, recently discovered villager dialogue seems to suggest the art gallery section of Blathers' museum – fake paintings and all – could be making a comeback, perhaps even as DLC.

Now, to add to this, an in-game recording doing the rounds on Twitter captures a villager making reference to Brewster – the recurring pigeon character who has appeared throughout the series, and ran his own cafe in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

A separate screenshot, in French, even makes reference to 'The Roost' – aka. Brewster's coffee shop in New Leaf.

While there's more evidence circulating, we'll cut to the chase and say it all points towards more content – and potentially DLC – being added to the game in the near future. For now, though, it should be treated as regular Animalese chatter and nothing more.

Do you think we'll see more familiar animal faces set up shop in New Horizons? Share your thoughts below.
