New data mined code fragments suggest Brewster could be re-opening his museum cafe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

A new report from the informants at Animal Crossing World has revealed that a particularly intriguing set of code has been added to Nintendo's latest Animal Crossing installment: New Horizons. According to one of the outlet's writers identifying themselves as Justin, something about the code in the latest update to Version 1.11 has given the playerbase renewed hope for the return of the fan-favorite barista pigeon, Brewster.

Version 1.11 dropped on July 28 and included August seasonal events alongside "adjustments and corrections"—which we assume are bugfixes and other stability improvements. That wasn't all, however, as Nintendo slipped in some supporting code with the free update, as well.

Several lines of code have appeared, referring to a currently unused "Museum Cafe" in a handful of ways. The first two were camera changing parameters meant to be used once a player steps into a specific space—in this case, "IdrMuseumCafe." A third entrance has also been added to the Museum package: "IdrMuseumEnt03."

The most exciting of all, however, is the "cNpcMemory:TalkProgressMuseumBuiltCafe" flag now associated within the Museum as part of its building "EventFlow." That is to say that this could point to a new space or "wing" within the building, entirely.

Unfortunately, DBLTAP cannot confirm a time at which Nintendo will switch these flags "on." In fact, heartbreaking as it may be, these may not even correspond to Brewster—although, we're hard-pressed to think of any other character in the franchise known to have a cafe in the Museum.
