Among the many new features included in yesterday’s Version 2.0.0 update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the addition of Villager visits, where Villagers either invite you round to their house for a nice chat and a game of cards, or come to visit you in your own home.
Seeing your Villagers walking around your home for the first time, judging every decoration decision you’ve made before casually flopping down in the middle of your living room to read a book, can feel a little surreal, but it sure is nice to have some company. Well, unless your house is full of cockroaches, at least.
You see, if you haven’t played the game for a long time, your house will currently be swarmed with cockroaches. You’ll spot them running around across your carpets, and unless you squash them (the poor things!) they’ll stay there forever more.
Interestingly, with the new update, Villagers now have their own reactions to seeing cockroaches in your home. It’s safe to say they’re not best pleased:
No one wants a house guest to say that their humble abode is disgusting before running out the door, so you might want to consider cleaning up ASAP. If a Villager does come knocking before you get it sorted, well… You can always boot them off the island to avoid having to speak to them ever again?
