Reese is a pink alpaca in the Animal Crossing series who first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In New Leaf and Pocket Camp, she operates Re-Tail, and in New Horizons, she is part of the Wedding Season event. She often appears alongside her husband, Cyrus. The combination of "Reese" and the first syllable of Cyrus's name form the first two syllables of the word "recycle," a reference to one of the services that Re-Tail provides.



Artwork from Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Reese is a white alpaca. Her fur, cheeks and lipstick are pink. She has black eyes with no visible pupils, and small eyelashes with each two on each eye. Her nose is also black. The insides of her ears are orange, while the inside of her mouth is reddish-pink. When working, she wears a reddish-orange apron with small blue crosses, two yellow buttons on each strap, and a pink heart pattern.


Reese is hard-working and loving, like her husband, Cyrus.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Reese operates Re-Tail, allowing the player to sell items, put items up for sale, view turnip prices, and purchase items.

In New Horizons[edit]

A photo of Cyrus and Reese taken during Wedding Season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Reese was introduced in the 1.2.0 April Free Update alongside Cyrus and the Wedding Season event. She appears in the aforementioned event alongside Cyrus on Harv's Island and asks the player to decorate a room in Photopia to match a specific wedding theme for her and Cyrus's wedding anniversary photo shoot. After a photo shoot is complete, Reese will reward the player with heart crystals.

With the release of the 2.0 update, Cyrus and Reese now have a venue open at the plaza on Harv's Island.

Reese's poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting her to Photopia via her amiibo. Additionally, Reese appears on the Reese & Cyrus photo plate, which is received during Wedding Season.

Prior to its removal in version 2.0, when the player scans Reese's amiibo card and tries to invite her, she will say:

Hello, this is Reese. Who may I ask is calling? Oh, Player!
To what do I owe the pleasure?
An invitation to your campsite? Well, that sounds...rustic. And quite charming! But...
It's just not a good time for us right now, so I'll have to politely decline. But I'm so happy you thought of me!

In Pocket Camp[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Reese operates Re-Tail, just like in New Leaf. She appears in the Market Place.

Reese & Cyrus

Description NTSC-U: From their names, you might guess they're a pair of country singers, but actually they run Re-Tail. Reese sells all kinds of secondhand goods, and Cyrus customizes furniture. They may not be singers, but these exuberant alpacas work together in perfect harmony.

PAL: Their names make them sound like a pair of country singers, but they're actually the proprietors of Re-Tail. Reese deals in second-hand goods, while her husband, Cyrus, customises furniture. They might not do much singing together, but there's definitely harmony between these alpacas.
