Datamining Reveals New Animal Crossing: New Horizons Features and Returning Characters

All of this from Ninji's Twitter, where there has been a lot of Animal Crossing: New Horizons information leaked out recently, with news such as new ships, museum upgrades, and new bushes potentially inbound.

First is news that Crazy Redd will have his own ship that will dock on his 'secret beach' that players will be able to find. He'll be able to sell fake art and other gear, just like he did for prior games in the series. However, if you buy fake items don't try and donate them to the Museum, because it probably won't accept them... or will it?

Speaking of the Museum, there will be two additional upgrades incoming, with a Museum Shop and Cafe datamined along with the three current sections of the Museum containing placements for art that have yet to be made available. Maybe it'll be made available through Crazy Redd, perhaps?

What's not available through Crazy Redd (at least you'd think so) are the six types of bushes that have been found. These include the Azalea, Hibiscus, Holly, Hydrangea, Camellia, and Osmathus bushes. Apparently these could be changed, but this is what has been found so far. 

Incoming greenery also includes vegetables such as the Tomato, Potato, Carrot, Pumpkin, Wheat, and Sugar. You might be able to use these vegetables in cooking as well, with recipes and such could eventually be released to the player.

A feature previously included, such as Diving, is in the data files as well, as well as Sea Creatures if you are bold enough to go catch some. And if you don't get them, you can always get some seaweed.

Last but not least, there is a third version of the New Nook's Cranny that may be released. If you want to read the entire Twitter thread to see what's going on in the Animal Crossing world, go here.
