Unlike other games, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is always changing. Based on a real time clock and calendar, each new month brings something fresh for players to enjoy. The game just launched a couple of weeks ago, so we’re in store for some fresh additions in April. New bugs and fish are coming, while others are leaving. We’ll break down all the new stuff you’ll want to catch before they’re gone. Here’s the new fish and bugs to catch in April in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

We’ll start with the northern hemisphere, as that’s where most of the shakeup is happening. Many fish and bugs will be leaving, but they’ll be replaced by a nice new set to catch. Many of them will be around for a while, so take your time adding them all to your museum. But watch for those end dates below to avoid missing out completely.
