A datamine leak from Twitter user Ninji could give us a hint of what's to come in the next Animal Crossing: New Horizons update.

Ninji, who previously uncovered conditions for the upgrades to Nook's Cranny, speculates that some of the features hinted at by the datamining could be upcoming in the Earth Day update for the popular Nintendo Switch title. Of course, it is also possible that the features were dropped in development and won't necessarily appear in the game if they're "leftover" code. One such feature hinted at is another upgrade for Nook's Cranny.

Arguably the most exciting potential update is the addition of vegetable growing to the game. While players can already plant flowers and pick fruit on their islands, vegetables would add an extra layer of fun and income to pay off their home loans. Potential crops include "tomato, wheat, sugar cane, potato, carrot, pumpkin," according to Ninji.

Another activity hinted at in the code is diving, which will allow the player to apparently catch different types of fish from regular pole fishing. For the full speculation of what's to come, you can find Ninji's thread here.

We likely won't know for sure what will be in the next update until closer to its release, but until then there is still plenty to do in the hit game, from filling up your museum to recruiting more villagers to your island.
