Animal Crossing: New Horizons receives monthly updates to its creatures here and there, but with January there is more to look forward to. But this update comes with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, this new update to fish, bugs, and sea creatures only comes for the Southern Hemisphere islanders.

But fear not, Norther Hemisphere islanders! If you’ve been looking for things to do, check out the huge 2.0 Update that came in November or how to find gyoids. There is a lot to do with all the new Animal Crossing content recently added, so don’t be shy, check out all our Animal Crossing guides.
