Earlier this week, Animal Crossing: New Horizons had its street date broken in many place across the globe. Now, dataminers have gotten their hands on the game and have begun poking around for interesting details.
One such dataminer is Kaphotics, who is more well known for his work with the Pokemon series. After digging through the game, Kaphotics discovered what appears to be the full list of Villager names and species, currently numbered at an impressive 397 in total (including returning and new villagers).
You can find a link to the list below, after the spoiler image.
Figured I'd do some datamining for the new Animal Crossing New Horizons game; found the list of villager names & species: https://t.co/DLzjgHynYi — Megan is the new fabulous pink bear.

It should be noted however, that other dataminers with access to the game have reported that only 391 of these villagers have models, possibly indicating that not all of them have been fully programmed into the game. Until Animal Crossing: New Horizons has come out proper, we advise players to take reports such as these with a grain of salt.
