Mr. Resetti most likely works for the Rescue Service in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I wonder if he's still grumpy

Back in a Mashable interview from June 2019, Nintendo's Aya Kyogoku confirmed that Mr. Resetti was let go from his previous job, as his services weren't needed in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It was also teased that Mr. Resetti would be getting a new job.

"I think this will be a positive thing for the player, because in New Horizons you can stop playing in the middle of your game and it'll still save, but unfortunately because there's no necessity to reset the game or reset button on the Switch, Mr. Resetti had a hard time. He was laid off from his position. We also believe that Mr. Resetti is looking for a new job after his layoff. So please look forward to that."

While we haven't seen Resetti yet in any gameplay, today's Nintendo Direct showed us that Resetti has taken on a new position. Check out the 10:50 mark in the video below to see what we mean.

While we don't see Mr. Resetti in this clip, there's no doubt he's involved with the new Rescue Service. That section of the Direct features a remix of Mr. Resetti's classic song, so we're sure he's helping out behind the scenes, rescuing islanders who are having trouble getting home.

Thanks to Kolma for the heads up!


Mr. Resetti goes from being anti-resets to pro-resets. What a world.

What's even the point of this? The towns aren't so big. Is it just if you trap yourself with the terrain tools or something?

"The remote of the TV is too far away."

Back in my day I had to walk two miles in the snow uphill both ways to change the channel. And I had to apologize to a mole for thirty minutes if I accidentally turned off my game without saving.
You kids have it so good.

Who knows.... perhaps the island will get bigger.

The wording of the Direct made it sound like it was if you got stuck somehow, likely as an unintended consequence of the new terraforming mechanic.

You teleport to your home faster. I don't see what's so bad about this. Seems very useful actually, and like someone else here said it could prevent some terraforming accidents.

Also, it should have been obvious to anyone who plays these games that it was Mr. Resetti based on his voice sample and theme song playing during the rescue operation. The real question now is how exactly is he transporting you. Through his tunnels? Via a helicopter?

I can only hope the Resetti Redemption is as good as Tom Nook's Tragic Backstory.
