At E3 2019, Nintendo announced the development of the new addition to the Animal Crossing series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is centered on a deserted island that you, the protagonist, name and cultivate into the tropical paradise of your dreams. You are accompanied, of course, by familiar faces and good friends that you have met in previous installments of this cheerful and family friendly franchise. 

In the past months since the announcement, numerous updates have been published, and as the release date of March 20 looms closer and closer, the list of villagers that have the possibility of joining you on your new horizons (get it?) has been ultimately finalized. Many kind faces are returning, to the joy of many; Beau, for instance, or Molly or Apollo. These friends will indeed make your island much more tolerable and pleasant, but true Animal Crossing fans must have noticed the absence of a fan favorite: Drago.

If a player has not had the fortune and good luck of having the dragon-esque alligator in their Animal Crossing: New Leaf town, Drago is a lazy-type villager who loves food, loves friends, and loves a good summer day spent with his pals. It is outrageous and does not make logical sense that he is not included in this new game. He was indeed featured in the mobile app, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, for iOS and Android. This app revolves around the player's campsite. It is perplexing that the creators of Animal Crossing, who supposedly know and love their characters, would make the choice for Drago to be outdoors in a campsite, when he is a lazy villager that truly loves having time in the sun, relaxing, and not so much braving the wilderness in the woods. While it is true that he can and does find pleasantries in a good nap on the campsite hammock, it makes much more sense for him to enjoy a nice vacation on a beautiful island, where he can dip his scaly toes in the water and get a nice tan. 

If it is an issue of including certain characters a certain amount of times, I urge the reader to consider the fact that Beau, the dear deer sweetheart, is included in the most recent games: Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and now Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is not an argument of removing Beau – an act that would be borderline blasphemous – or any other villager that already has their ticket for the upcoming surf and sun, but instead an argument, and plea, to include Drago. 

We, as a community, are asking Nintendo to please add Drago into Animal Crossing: New Horizons before it is too late. The official character list mentions 10 cat villagers, 17 squirrel villagers, 20 rabbit villagers, and yet only three alligator villagers... and Drago, the sweetest reptile I, and many others, know, isn't even one of them.
