Animal Crossing Characters Kicks, Celeste, Label, C.J., Flick, Daisy MaeSource: iMore

If you've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a while, you've probably noticed that several special characters — specifically Celeste, C.J., Flick, Saharah, Kicks, and Label — visit your island. What you might not know is that there are prerequisites to getting these unique characters to visit. Once these conditions have been met, each character has a set schedule for when they could appear on your island. We have Ninji to thank for uncovering some of this information. While characters aren't guaranteed to show up on your island during these times, it gives you a better idea of when to expect each one.

Here's a chart explaining what conditions needed to unlock each special character along with their visiting days and times. Characters are in alphabetical order.

Be our guest!

Now, you have to meet the criteria before any of these characters appear on your island. I have been dying for C.J. to visit my island as I've stocked up on several rare fish since I last saw him. Hopefully, whoever you're looking for will appear on your island soon.
