Since its official launch on the Nintendo Switch, Animal Crossing New Horizons has had no shortage of new events and activities for players to look forward to. This month, players get to celebrate May Day by going on a special island tour to meet a possible familiar face. Here’s how to find Rover in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Finding Rover in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Rover was a character that showed up in past Animal Crossing games and would help the player character get set up, and he makes a special appearance in New Horizons as well, though his proper role in the game isn’t clear just yet. To meet him, you’ll first need to speak with Tom Nook at Resident Services between May 1 to May 7 to learn about the May Day Tour.
After that, speak with Orville at the airport and let him know you want to go on the May Day Tour, and you’ll be transported to a special island that you have to navigate without anything on you.
Essentially, you’ll be able to pick up a shovel and axe along the way, and you need to make use of the materials and resources on this island to get to the northeast corner of the area. Once you do so, you’ll be able to speak with Rover and introduce yourself, and he’ll hand over Rover’s Briefcase, which is a piece of furniture you can display on your island.
After that, you can return back to your island and let Nook know you’ve completed the tour. However, it doesn’t seem like you can repeat the May Day Tour after you’ve already done it once.
If Rover gets any sort of follow-up or a proper role in the game later on down the line, we’ll update this guide with the relevant info.
