Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a brief but extremely successful history. What fans are now keenly interested in is probably the future of the popular life sim. Usually, players will not find out about patches and updates until they are released. Now a dataminer could have succeeded in taking a comprehensive look into the crystal ball. “Ninji” claims to have discovered a whole range of new features in the code of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Whether all content will find its way into the game in the same way is in the stars: everything can, nothing has to - data mining is speculative. 


The launch of the Life Sim is given the Nintendo good sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons successful. Now it is a matter of constantly developing the game, fixing bugs and adding new content at regular intervals. Exactly about this there could now be new details.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - From new plants to museum upgrades, everything is included

Only Nintendo knows for sure what the future of Animal Crossing: New Horizons holds in store for gamers. It is certain that future updates for the game will be developed and published. When new content comes, but above all what exactly it consists of, is written in the stars. Now there is at least cause for speculation. The Dataminer “Ninji” has a comparative comprehensive list released with new features for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

For example, the code mentions additional upgrades for the museum as well as two completely separate buildings: a museum shop and a museum café. There can also be another upgrade for Nook's shop.

The data minder also found objects in the program code. These include flowers: azalea, camellia, holly, hibiscus, hydrangea and osmanthus, but also vegetables such as tomatoes and carrots or pumpkins and potatoes. There was also talk of seafood at least in Update 1.0.0. Overall, according to the Dataminer, the list may change between updates 1.0.0 and 1.1.4. Diving should be able to catch other fish than fishing, as well as algae.

Exciting: the Japanese name of “Reiner” is mentioned. He should be able to anchor a ship on a secret beach in the north of the island.

Art is also an issue, first as an area in a house, then as game mechanics. The forged works of art from the predecessors could thus find their way back into the series and also be implemented in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. There were already indications of this through conversations with some residents who explicitly mentioned a “gallery” in the museum.

All the information about future content is purely speculative and comes from the code. It could be features that are actually planned, but also fragments of the program code, including ideas that have already been rejected by the developers.
