Vegetable Farming

While this will require me to completely redo my island, I welcome this addition. Data shows that in conjunction to the fruit we can already grow and harvest, we’ll soon be able to grow vegetables as well. From how it looks in the data this will include wheat, sugar cane, pumpkins, carrots, potatoes and tomatoes.

I’ve said that Animal Crossing has a lot it could learn from Stardew Valley but I genuinely didn’t think the first thing they were going to learn from it was farming. That’s not a bad thing though. I think it’s an interesting new twist to the formula. That I wholeheartedly welcome.


This one I could do without unless the complete rumor is true. Hidden in the code there’s mention of the gyroids. These are the little totem-looking fellows who resemble Final Fantasy Cactaurs. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons there’s just one and it’s the one you pay to finish up bridges and inclines.

Normally, they’re something you dig up occasionally and. If you choose to keep it, it sits in your home and twitches and makes strange noises along with whatever song you have playing. Now that I have two children in real life that already do that, my need for gyroids has diminished.

The cool thing though is that this seems to be tied in to the museum info meaning that it looks like it’ll be a new area of the museum we can donate them too. That honestly sounds like a really fun addition to the place. Especially if we can do something like have different rooms with different sounds so that we can create fun new mixes.
