Animal Crossing: New Horizons Might Introduce Island Expansion With Upcoming Update

Published

on

Animal Crossing: New Horizons confirms a new update for this week and another for the end of the year

We can take a look at even more findings from dataminers found in the latest update of the game. Remember that recently in this same version there were references to the customization of fences, the cafeteria, and more.

Well, now we must add the following to this list:

  1. A new tool that corresponds to the basket of petals that you can throw. This object belongs to the wedding season and in fact, has already been seen in the title.
  2.  Changes related to the game’s camera, which could correspond to new angles or functions.
  3. The southern line of the island seems to have doubled in size in the in-game code, something that points to a second island or something similar, with more space towards the bottom as you can see in the picture above. It is unlikely to be an expansion of the island as such, so the bet is more on a second island related to Captain, a second seaplane, or something similar.

Some are suggesting that it would be a nice second smaller island while others are speculating it to be a larger area where they can further swim and dive into the sea.

Indeed, this would be an amazing addition, as most players are already running out of space to decorate their islands. If players get a new small island, they will be able to decorate it with the recently added 1.10 event-exclusive items as well. Naturally, these are all just leaks, so take it with a grain of salt. It’s not confirmed whether Nintendo will introduce it in the next patch or not.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a hit. It’s such a hit that it will probably end up as the number one Switch game of all time, dethroning Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and could hold that top spot forever. So it makes perfect sense that Nintendo is going to try and chase that success.

Speaking to Nikkei, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explains how the game got so popular, in fairly obvious terms: “It’s true that our recent growth has stemmed from the need for people to stay at home. Even though (Japan’s) state of emergency is over, people are spending more time at home than before.”

OK, that makes a lot of sense, but there’s a lot to unpack here. New Horizons really tapped into the portable and communal element of the Switch, something consoles can lack on an emotional level. Furukawa wants to tap into that more, explaining: “As games with long lifespans like Animal Crossing become more accepted, we believe this will have a significant impact on future development. We want to provide games that can allow communication between friends and families.”

The major update that will likely introduce Brewster and his bar is set to be released in November

Again we get an interesting message related to one of the most outstanding video games in the Nintendo Switch catalog. We talk again about Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

In the tweet that we leave below, we can see that leaker SamusHunter, who in previous occasions has been successful with filtered content, has pronounced on the great update that we expect for this game. He says it will be released in November at the latest. He adds that this update is likely to include Brewster and his bar.

Along with this, he has also speculated on the date of the upcoming Nintendo Direct, stating that it could take place next week. However, this has not been assured as clearly as the New Horizons update.

Dataminers find references to jobs for neighbors in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons code

Dataminers inform us of another recent finding by the in the game code. They have recently been diving into the latest update of the title and, after detecting changes in the weather, it seems that they have also found news related to the neighbors.

These are the details offered:

  • New allocations of certain clothing items have been found for neighbors. They are as follows:
    • All the neighbors have been assigned the possibility of wearing the nurse’s gown and the nurse’s cap on their own
    • All the neighbors have been assigned the possibility of wearing the nurse’s jacket by themselves
    • Both genders have been assigned the possibility of wearing the doctor’s gown on their own
    • All athletic and grumpy neighbors have been assigned the ability to wear their after-school jacket on their own
    • All lazy and snobbish neighbors have been assigned the ability to wear the sailor shirt, which resembles a school uniform on their own
  • These indications suggest that, in the future, neighbors could wear these outfits on their own initiative under some circumstances, something that does not happen today
  • It is believed that this could be related to the hospital and school function present in Happy Home Designer, especially considering that more functions of this 3DS game have already been found previously in the code of New Horizons, such as the ability to edit the roof in the houses
  • In addition, in the past a reference was found that mentioned a “business mode” , although it was later withdrawn from the code and it was never known what that business mode meant.

With this, it is concluded that perhaps in the future the neighbors will acquire professions related to the hospital and the school. We will have to be attentive to more details to see if it finally ends up happening like this.

New weather patterns maybe coming in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Dataminers have found changes to the weather in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons may have been released as a new member of the popular series, but a year after its release, it may be more like a design toolbox than a video game. Once the game is over through a series of challenges aimed at turning the main island into a prosperous city, players have no choice but to decorate their hiding place.

The game still has countless players and dedicated communities, but players desperately need new content. US President Doug Bowser’s Nintendo promises that there will be new cross-border animals, but it is unknown when.

Well, today we have good news for you that comes from Dataminers. According to them, they have found details related to weather.

This is the information shared:

  • Nintendo appears to have added a total of 5 new weather patterns to add to the infinite variety of patterns present in the game, which makes it difficult to find any two patterns the same between different players.
  • These patterns seem to mean that it is now more likely to rain on our islands.
  • It is unknown what this is due to, but many have been speculating that it could be related to the arrival of the gyroids: as you know, these objects appeared after days of rain.
  • In addition, this could also be related to Brewster’s Café, which dataminers have previously found references to. Remember that Figaro is a fan of gyroids, as we have seen in previous games.
