A bunch of new Animal Crossing: New Horizons renders and artwork have been released, giving us a good look at the game’s NPCs as well as the depth with which players can customize their characters with new hairstyles, nose and mouth shapes, and more.



The first three images show player characters involved in a variety of activities; from left to right, we have a square-nosed boy character holding an apple by a campfire with Fuchsia the deer, a white-haired girl with Tom Nook and a bunch of crafting materials, and a round-nosed boy vaulting across a river while Hamlet looks on.

The girl in the middle picture seems to be sporting a brand-new hairstyle, as well.



From left to right again, the next three show a square-nosed boy catching a fish, a girl catching a butterfly, and another girl watering some flowers.

All three renders show new clothing options, from backpacks to bags to oversized sweaters, as well as brand-new hairstyles on both the girls.



The next four images show a seemingly gender-neutral character with a square nose (characters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can have whatever hairstyle and wear whatever clothes they like regardless of sex), a girl with another new hairstyle (or at least an updated version of one seen in previous games), a blue-haired girl with a definite new hairstyle, and a boy with a hairstyle never-before-seen in an Animal Crossing game: dreads.



Finally, we can see renders of special NPC characters like Tom Nook and his nephews Timmy and Tommy, plus singing dog KK Slider, who had not been confirmed to appear in the game.
