A new month brings a lot of big changes to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, due to it using a real time clock and calendar to determine what’s happening in the game. Now that we’re deep into the summer in the northern hemisphere, there’s actually huge shifts in the bugs and fish you’ll see appear around your island. The southern hemisphere is a different story though, with no changes in either spawn set due to it being the winter months down there. But for those playing up north here’s all the new fish and bugs to catch in July in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
