Every new bug, fish, and sea creature coming to Animal Crossing in July 2021

Bug out over some new fishy July arrivals!

Sun’s out, fish guns out. For players Animal Crossing: New Horizons players in the Northern Hemisphere, you can now spot oodles of new fish, bugs, and deep-sea creatures in your surroundings. With June entering our rearview and July coming in hot, new bugs and fish will arrive on the island as others leave for greener pastures due to a change in season.

No matter how you play Animal Crossing, this could be the start of your narrow window to catch the critter of your dreams. It could be just the exhibit you were missing from Blathers' museum on International Museum Day or just a way to make a quick Bell.

Here's everything you can catch beginning on July 1.

New Horizons’ fauna differs based on where you live in the real world. Due to how seasons are experienced, folks in the Northern Hemisphere have access to a different variety of critters than those who reside in the Southern Hemisphere. The Northern Hemisphere is beginning to experience warmer months, so Animal Crossing reflects that, while also reflecting the Southern Hemisphere going into winter months.

You can cheat the system by time-traveling or heading to a friend's island located in the hemisphere opposite your own.
