Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a dataminer's paradise, apparently. A ton of unused features for Nintendo's game have been found in files from recent patches and updates.
Over on Twitter, regular dataminer Ninji posted their findings in the source code of New Horizons. You can see their complete finding by following the Twitter thread just below, but steer well clear if you don't want spoilers for potential upcoming features for Animal Crossing!
Some of the more noteworthy discoveries include two entries for supposed Museum upgrades. One of them apparently references an artwork exhibit, and others are a Museum shop and cafe area. There are also mentions of several fauna, diving, and a ship that docks at the "secret beach." There's reason to take it all with a grain of salt, though.
Further down the thread, Ninji actually provides some nice insight into the source code of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. They do note that there's the possibility that all of this could be scrapped, or still a work in progress, and we'd have relatively little idea of telling which features will be included in New Horizons, and which were just left in the game by accident.
In other Animal Crossing news, sales of the game were recently halted at a major Chinese retailer. There's been some speculation that this ban is a result of the Hong Kong democracy protests taking place in New Horizons after lockdowns worldwide in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
