An in depth Animal Crossing: New Horizons datamine has unveiled loads of potential options for the social sim sport, like add-ons for the Museum, harvesting greens, and the return of Redd (through Animal Crossing World).
I’ve not posted a lot about this, however I feel it’s a superb time to share some secrets and techniques about unreleased options in Animal Crossing that sport code hints at…
A few of this would possibly make it into the Earth Day replace, some would possibly change earlier than launch
Mute #ACspoilers if not

Animal Crossing dataminer Ninji was the one to uncover the next options. We should be cautious, although, as a result of the presence of those additions within the sport’s code doesn’t essentially infer that they’re in improvement. They could possibly be artefacts of an earlier iteration of New Horizons, and have been unintentionally left behind by the builders. Consequently, we must always take this report as a hearsay.
Firstly, the datamine alleges that there are two extra buildings to be added onto the island’s Museum. That is alongside the growth for an artwork gallery (extra on this in a second). These two buildings are the Museum Store and a Museum Café, which might return from earlier video games within the collection. The Museum Café, presumably run by Brewster the barista, would additionally function a Gyroid store. Aside from Lloid, Gyroids are absent from New Horizons, and they’d add an additional layer to these great island sing-a-longs.
The artwork gallery can be supplemented by the reappearance of Redd. A con artist, he would weigh anchor on the small “secret” seaside that each one gamers have on the very again of their island. This space of the map is particularly named “Nつねきち,” which is Redd’s title in Japanese. Apparently, he’ll dock onto the key seaside together with his personal ship to promote art work and sculptures to the participant. It’s potential that the items he sells are forgeries, which can be why he would hold his distance from Tom Nook on the fringe of the island.
Thirdly, azalea, hibiscus, holly, and hydrangea bushes can be accessible, like they have been in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Two extra foliage choices, camellia and osmathus, have been additionally present in New Horizons code. Furthermore, references to greens and cooking have been seen, together with tomato, potato, carrot, pumpkin, wheat, and sugar. Animal Crossing has by no means featured cooking earlier than, but it surely had by no means featured crafting earlier than, both. New Horizons does make use of seasonal recipes, and maybe there could possibly be pumpkin dishes for the autumnal months. And, an unused store interface titled “cGardening” has been uncovered, and would apparently work just like the Nook Miles menu of rewards.
The datamine has dredged up code pertaining to diving and sea creatures, which was a function in New Leaf. I observed the diving gear within the Museum and questioned if this was solely set dressing. If this datamine is verifiable, the participant would possibly be capable to discover the ocean for 33 new “Seafood” objects, together with animal and seaweed species. Lastly, the final huge discovery is one other growth for the Nook’s Cranny retailer. Not a lot else is acknowledged about its options or dimension, but it surely would possibly provide a better vary of instruments and limited-time objects.
As soon as extra, we don’t know if all, some, or any of those aforementioned additions are on their strategy to New Horizons. These could possibly be experiments that Nintendo made with the sport, after which finally deserted as a result of they didn’t work for no matter purpose. The almost definitely of those to be an actual function is the Museum Café, as a result of villagers have been describing Brewster as if he’s on the island already. Be that as it might, we’ll hold you within the loop as soon as we get a affirmation from Nintendo.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for the Nintendo Change.
