Franklin usually makes an appearance on Harvest Day, he has appeared in most of the previous titles in the series so it makes sense to see his return in New Horizons. His persona has often been perceived as quite shy in the past however he seemed to become a more confident character in New Leaf.

He would appear in the plaza on players islands and inform them that he required their help to gather some missing ingredients he needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner. These items could be gathered by harvest particular things on the island or gathering them by talking to villagers.
