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

Every new critter, depending on your hemisphere.

Another month, another round of new bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures. Animal Crossing: New Horizons can expect to find plenty of new creatures on their island over the course of this month. This monthly change is super important for anyone that wants to complete Blather's museum in the game or just make some quick Bells by scouring their island for these creatures.

The new fish, bugs, and deep-sea creatures that players will encounter during the month of October will change depending on if you are playing in the Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere. If it's fall, you're in the Northern Hemisphere and this week's Halloween updates make a lot of sense. If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, your island should be in the default lush-green Spring Season right now.

Either way, here's what you can expect in terms of new fish, bugs, and deep-sea diving creatures this month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
