Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Server Maintenance Happening Tonight

1 month ago 2 Comments

Nintendo has announced server maintenance for Animal Crossing: New Horizons tonight to prepare for the incoming significant Summer Update adding Swimming, Sea Creatures, Pascal, and more!

We received an in-game notification on our Nintendo Switch while playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons alerting us of the incoming maintenance set to begin shortly at 6PM Pacific Time / 9PM Eastern Time.

More complete details of the maintenance can be found on the official Network Maintenance Information / Operational Status page on Nintendo’s official website, which we’ll cover below.

According to the status page, both Animal Crossing: New Horizons network services and the NookLink service within the Nintendo Switch Online mobile application will be down for maintenance for one hour beginning at 6PM Pacific Time / 9PM Eastern Time and ending at 7PM Pacific Time / 10PM Eastern Time.

UPDATE: The maintenance and update are now both complete! You can find theĀ Full Version 1.3.0 Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Patch Notes: Swimming, Sea Creatures, Pascal right over here.

We’ve included all of the important and relevant information below:
