Summer Arrives in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

As summer officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere, so too does it begin in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. What does the entail? Well, a few things after watching this trailer.

First, Animal Crossing: New Horizons plans on launching this on July 3. Players can now swim around their island and even dive underwater to capture creatures. I think Blathers will be happy to see what you find!

Also, Pascal is making an appearance in this update and he’ll offer you some DIY recipes which you can create exceptional furniture with.

Gulliver also is getting a new outfit, and he’s shifting his look from a sailor to a pirate. Help him when you see him and earn a reward.

Nintendo is calling this Wave 1, and there’s another update coming in early August. What that includes is up for speculation but there’s likely going to be some new characters and maybe a new in-game event.
