Animal Crossing: New Horizons will receive this November 5th its biggest update to date, a content expansion where, at the end of the day, the arrival of Figaro’s cafe is just the tip of the iceberg. Because the title of Nintendo Switch wants to expand its possibilities at the playable level, taking what was one of its greatest mechanical novelties a step further: the manufacture of resources. If until now we could learn recipes to create tools and objects, now we can also learn to cook.
This past week’s Animal Crossing Direct helped us understand how will the kitchen work in the game, given that it will not be enough only to apply the knowledge of the recipes in the kitchen, but to manage crops and, in short, to welcome the Agriculture.
To be cultivated: numerous types of cultivation
As of Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 2.0, the section on Creations + of our Nook Phone will introduce kitchen Recipes. According to the official communication from Nintendo, at the moment five types of crops have been confirmed on the islands: tomatoes, wheat, sugar cane, potatoes and carrots; but in the broadcast they also saw pumpkins. From these raw materials, completely vegan, we can combine the collected ingredients to prepare all kinds of dishes.
When it comes to the cooks license, we already know how much it will cost to unlock the cookbook (Be a Chef! DIY Recipes+): a total of 2,000 Nook Miles at the Nook Terminal on our island.
The culture procedure, therefore, will be similar to growing fruit and caring for flowers; a mixture of both, since it will be essential to prepare the land, place the raw material and water it periodically to provide water to the orchard through the irrigation.
Once home, it will be time to get down to business. Saucepan, spices, recipe in hand, skill and a lot of skill in preparing banquets. For example, we have seen that soup minestrone you will need two tomatoes, a potato, and a carrot. The recipes that we like the most can be saved in the favorites section to access them more quickly later. From there, cakes, sandwiches, smoothies … The dishes can be arranged on the table or used as a gift for our neighbors; like any other object. And if, we can eat the food to regain energy.
What else do we know about crops from Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The Animal Crossing Direct section dedicated to the kitchen was barely a minute long, enough to take note of a multitude of aspects that await us this November 5. For example, the presence of materials such as sugar (that we can create from sugar canes) and what appears to be flour (presumably from wheat).
Judging from one of the images in the video, although most of the dishes we’ve seen will be plant-based, it will also be possible to cook with animal meat. If you look closely, one of the dishes includes a fish “Apparently one of the ones we’ve fished before.”
Otherwise, the inventory will discriminate between two types of dishes: tasty and sweet. The first is the one shown with the covered plate icon; the second, a piece of cake, apparently for everything related to desserts. One last detail that has not gone unnoticed is that of the space. Each plate will occupy a place in the environment both in width and length. Depending on how big it is, we can use it to decorate on the table or other objects.
