Speculation regarding the introduction of Redd and an art gallery in the debut Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch game has been running rampant since earlier this month. Now, Nintendo has finally confirmed that the sly fox is set to make his triumphant return aboard Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler in New Horizons.

“Jolly” Redd will appear randomly as an island visitor, and, much like Gulliver, he can be located on your island’s coastal beaches. Unlike Gulliver, however, Redd will be docked in a boat that you’ll need to board in order to speak with him. Inside, players can browse a variety of art pieces and other antiquities before making any desired purchases.

Much like critters and fossils, these items can either be kept and displayed as you see fit or donated to the museum for Blathers to showcase. In order to fill the Animal Crossing: New Horizons art gallery, you’ll want to frequently patrol your waters in search of Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler; whenever he shows up, simply purchase and donate as many items as possible before Redd sets sail on his merry way.

How to fill the Animal Crossing: New Horizons art gallery

  • Patrol your shoreline daily in search of Jolly Redd’s Treasure Trawler.
  • If you see Redd’s boat docked, board and purchase any antiques you haven’t previously donated to the art gallery.
  • Go to the museum and speak with Blathers, then opt to donate the antiquities you purchased.
