Animal Crossing: New Horizons had its long awaited Direct today, which delivered a lot of details on possibly the biggest update yet for the game. A key new addition, and one that's sure to keep a lot of us busy, was cooking and a new range of growable crops.

Spotted by dataminers back in 2020, it seems this has been planned for some time, and the broadcast showed various ways it'll shake up the game.
