In a surprise new update, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp has dropped half a dozen new villagers, new furniture for all of them, as well as a new type of essence called “hip essence.” The “Host the Most” initiative also returns from previous updates, offering hip essence in exchange for inviting animals to your campsite.

There are also two new hip amenities: a mush tent that can be leveled up to Lvl 3 with 10 hip essence, 30 cotton, and 3000 Bells per level, as well as a patchwork ghost sofa that requires a Lvl 3 mush tent, 20 hip essence, 60 wood, and 3000 Bells with a max level of 5.

There is also a third-level hip amenity that can’t be seen until the first two amenities are maxed out: the bouncy cake, which goes up to level 5 and requires 30 hip essence, 100 paper, 20 rustic essence and 5000 Bells.

Without further ado, meet your new best friends:
