There's a brand-new update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons out today, which introduces several key features, including backup saves. As you've probably come to expect by now, dataminers have been digging into the files for the update, turning up several forthcoming features.
Ever-reliable Animal Crossing dataminer Ninji has been digging into update 1.4 for New Horizons over on Twitter. Buried within the files of the new update are references to tomatoes, wheat, sugar cane, potato, carrot, and squash, all of which are referred to as vegetables that you plant.
Elsewhere, Ninja also notes that there's hidden references to cooking and sewing DIY recipes within update 1.4 for New Horizons. These all sound like pretty plausible features that Nintendo could add to the game to keep players coming back, something the recent Summer update did pretty well with the introduction of swimming.
It's worth noting that Ninji has turned up some accurate information in the past. They previously found evidence of diving, and an art gallery in Blathers's museum. The diving feature was added alongside swimming in the Summer update earlier this month, and the art gallery was introduced before that, alongside art mogul Redd.
Patch 1.4 for Animal Crossing: New Horizons actually introduces some pretty substantial features for the game today. There's the ability to back up your island online using the Nintendo Switch Online service, in case your Switch is damaged or stolen. There's also fireworks shows going on every Sunday evening during August, as well as the dreaming feature, that allows players to visit one another's island in a dream state.
