ACNH Fall Update Prediction From 1.11 Datamine

Thanks to the hard work of data miner, again, we discover some exciting information from 1.11.0 patch of Animal Crossing New Horizons, which are possibly upcoming in the ACNH September fall update! The dataminers wasted no time and immediately set to work to compare the new version of the game with the previous one, to note down all the changes that have been made, providing us with predictions about the upcoming news. Take a close look of the Animal Crossing New Horizons 1.11 update datamine.

Brewster & Cafe

For months now there have been rumors of the arrival of Bartolo's cafeteria also on the last chapter of the saga, but we could be closer than we think. With the release of the latest version, a lot of juicy information has popped up from the game's datamine.

After more than a year of Brewster's discovery in the game code, we finally have some concrete changes at the code level. The dataminers have noticed a change in some parameters in reference to the view and structure of the Museum, with a rather explicit name: IdrMuseumCafe. It is substantially confirmed that the museum will expand further (as already announced a few months ago by the dataminers themselves) to make room for the cafeteria, which we have all been waiting for for some time.

The Roost is an café already known by the majority of the community, assuming a relaxing and nostalgic atmosphere, where you can enjoy excellent coffee (garnished with pigeon milk!) Prepared by our dear Brewster. The other parameters mentioned concern the entrance to the museum (called IdrMuseumEnt03), in which the number three refers to the number of enlargements made on the Museomuseo: the initial museum, the museum with the art gallery and the rumored museum with the cafeteria of Bartolo located on the third floor. The last parameter is called cNpcMemory: TalkProgressMuseumBuiltCafe, which would serve our inhabitants to be able to tell us about the new museum and the news inside. Even if they are still guesses!
