Dream Suite might be coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons soon

Players wanting a way to have visitors to their Animal Crossing islands without the fear of anyone messing with stuff might have their prayers answered soon if a recent datamine turns out to be true – the Dream Suite could be headed to New Horizons.

The Dream Suite was first introduced to the series in New Leaf in 2013, and allowed fans to visit other people without the worry of anyone destroying someone’s hard work. It was a place where players could go to “fall asleep” and dream of other places by using a special code, with none of the changes made in the towns saving once they woke up.

New Horizons doesn’t have a feature like that, and many players have reported that others have come into their towns with the promise of being respectful but then have stolen items, ruined flowers, and more. Luckily, if a recent datamine turns out to be true, that could all be about to change.

Notorious Animal Crossing dataminer Ninji, who was responsible for the Leif, museum, and Jolly Redd leaks, has shared some more of his findings – and this time, it seems like the dreamy feature could be on the way.

In the 1.1.0 update, he found code called ‘DreamID’ and while he didn’t think much of it at the time, the 1.2.0 April patch added a string called ‘ActorNetDreamLand.’ Put both of these together, and that’s a pretty big hint at what could be coming.

According to the dataminer, the addition also includes code that sends a pack of data to Nintendo’s servers – something that the Dream Suite in New Leaf did when players visited other towns in their sleep.

States like ‘cGetId,’ ‘cUpload,’ ‘cDownloadHeader,’ ‘cDownloadIsland,’ and ‘cReflectSave’ were also found, which also supports the theory since uploading and downloading towns is a part of the dream feature.

Ninji did express, however, that his findings shouldn’t be taken as 100% true as it’s just an assumption he’s made based on what he unearthed – who knows, it could be for something completely different, or for something that was toyed with in development but never explored further.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.

The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.

Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.

Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
