Animal Crossing fan shares cute Brewster art found at his local Starbucks

Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ Version 2.0 has largely delighted fans with its new additions and content. The update saw the long-awaited return of Brewster and The Roost cafe, which fans have been clamoring for since the game launched.

Brewster has been on the show for Animal Crossing: Wild World, giving players a fun mini-game and socializing options to play with. After a long wait, his cafe The Roost has been unlocked, allowing players to add it to Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ Museum.

Brewster is best known for the coffee it serves at its cafe, The Roost. While each entree varies a bit, The Roost gives players the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee, and in some cases players are challenged to find their villagers’ favorites while working behind the counter. It seems that a guest or barista at a Starbucks location is particularly fond of the pigeon and their coffee, because they created a special chalk art of the bird.

Drawn on a chalkboard sitting on the counter of Starbucks, apparently located in a Target store in Kirkwood, Missouri, Brewster can be seen offering the reader a cup of coffee for 200 bells. The art faithfully recreates Brewster’s appearance, while mimicking in-game text boxes and dialogue. The Roost himself is even credited in mini-art below the main.

While it’s unclear who created the art, it’s a lovely way to celebrate a peaceful game that many people relied on at the start of the pandemic. Although the tribute is probably lost on some store visitors, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been massively popular, so there’s a good chance many will recognize it, at least on some level.

The apparent freedom given to store employees to create art like this is also lovely, though some in the comments have expressed concerns that Nintendo might not appreciate the use of their character. Nintendo has fiercely protected its intellectual property rights over the years, serving takedown orders to numerous parties in an attempt to take its games or projects based on its games offline. Fanart often emerges unscathed from game series owners, but when tied to making money in a place like a real-world cafe run by a giant corporation, there’s always a chance it’ll be frowned upon. .

With the most recent major update seemingly being the last the game will see in terms of new content, it’s unlikely The Roost will see any real changes in the future. Roost coffee does not have all the features of Animal Crossing: New Leaf who fans have been hoping to see return, but nonetheless, many are still happy to see a familiar face.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
