With just a week to go before the end of the month Nintendo has revealed the upcoming free July update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Get ready to make a splash as the ability to swim and dive for sea creatures comes into New Horizons. You’ll also get to interact with fresh faces and discover a variety of new items, including mermaid-themed furniture. The update will be available on July 3rd.
- Swimming and Diving is back. Grab a wet suit and get aquatically acquainted with your island marine life when swimming and diving arrive to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Swim in the inviting waters off the coast of your island and dive to discover and scoop up sea creatures that inhabit your island’s ecosystem. Keep your eyes peeled for any prospective additions to the museum, and make sure to listen for fun facts from Blathers when you donate your new discoveries.
- Pascal Brings Rewarding Recipes – While swimming, you might meet a friendly visitor in Pascal. He love scallops, and if you discover one while diving, he may ask you if he can have it. As a thank you, he’ll share some of his mermaid-themed DIY recipes.
- After downloading the free update, Gulliver will occasionally wash up on shore, but sporting slightly different, pirate-like clothing. Offer him a helping hand and he’ll send a special reward to show his gratitude.
But that’s not all! Another summer update is planned to be released in early August.
Don’t forget that this Saturday is the Summer Bug-Off on the islands so be sure to talk to Flick and get catching those bugs.
