It’s hard for me to explain why I like Resetti so much. He’s only ever yelled at me — all furrowed brows and gnashing teeth. And yet, when I heard that the Animal Crossing mole got fired from his job, I was sad. Not Resetti! He’s too important. He did end up being in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but he’s just a voice when players need to be rescued.
Resetti is not back in New Horizons, but now players can memorialize him in some way: by adding a statue of him to their yard. OK, so, it’s not even close to Resetti being back. (Where is the shouting?!) But it’s a crumb, and I’ll take it.
The Resetti figure is available through Nook Shopping, in the seasonal items menu. It’ll take a day for it to arrive back at your mailbox. (But why wait if you can time travel?) I’ve put him right off the main road near my house, next to my prized lawnmower. Others are celebrating in different ways, like remembering the past.
I put that Resetti model right outside my house and it's like he's yelling at me again I miss it... I miss him— meghan (@NewH0rizonsH0) January 28, 2021
once i get the resetti model i’ll place it right next to my door just like in the older editions to remind myself to stop relying on auto saving so much and to /actually/ save the game— depthil (@acnhdepth) January 28, 2021
Others are taking more unconventional approaches. (My personal favorite? Mr. Resetti the news host.)
