Nintendo™ Switch – US, EU, AU & JAPAN
Gear up your favorite swimsuits as it’s summertime in Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Nintendo will bring the first free summer update for this life simulation video game.
In the upcoming summer update, you can now swim and dive, new characters to interact and meet, new items to find, new creatures to catch, and more! This free summer update is coming on July 3. However, another summer update is coming in August. So, stay tuned, folks!
For the full features, check out below via Nintendo.
- Swimming and Diving – 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 someone new! The friendly visitor Pascal seems to 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.
- Gulliver? – After downloading the free update, a familiar face 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.
