Anime News

If you are starting to feel burned out with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and you feel like you have nothing else to do anymore, the newest update released by Nintendo may give you more reasons to still stay in the game—especially in this current pandemic. The upcoming patch will be released in July 3, the first of the two-part major summer updates for the game.

The major update that was unveiled stated that players may now be able to explore the island even more as swimming will now be allowed and you will be able to collect sea critters. The anemones, starfish, eels and other sea-faring creatures that you get in the waters can be collected to the museum.

The new update will also introduce the new character Pascal, a sea otter that you can hit up for new recipes. Pascal has also made appearances in the previous Animal Crossing games as a chill character who would gives some good pearls of wisdom while you’re chilling in the waters. Also, if you remember the bird character Gulliver, it has been revealed in the video update that he will be a pirate now.

As of this writing, there is still no word on what the second major patch update would be. However, it will be released in the game around early August.

In Japan, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been #1 consecutively in the previous video game ranks, now being taken over by The Last of Us 2 on the recent one.

About Animal Crossing: New Horizons (as Described by Nintendo)

Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create, and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts.

The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round.

Show off your island utopia to family and friends—or pack your bags and visit theirs. Whether playing online* or with others beside you**, island living is even better when you can share it. Even without hopping on a flight, you’ll meet a cast of charming animal residents bursting with personality. Friendly faces like Tom Nook and Isabelle will lend their services and happily help you grow your budding community. Escape to your island getaway—however, whenever, and wherever you want.
