New Bugs, Fish, Sea Creatures In August For Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Northern & Southern Hemisphere)

2 months ago 6 Comments

August is finally here, so it’s time for a New Bugs, Fish, and Sea Creatures Arriving in August Guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons! We’ll tell you every new critter joining your island this month in both the Northern & Southern Hemispheres.

Each and every month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings a different set of fish or bug creatures that can appear on your Animal Crossing island depending on the current month from the real-time clock.

That means you can potentially discover a fresh new batch of fish, bugs, and sea creatures on your island to catch when August begins that weren’t previously available to catch in July!

So if you want to catch every single creature to complete your NookPhone’s Critterpedia for getting golden tool items and donate every critter to the Museum, it’s important to know which critters have arrived this month and make sure you catch them as soon as you can to get an early start.

This guide covers both the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere islands — you’ll find the Southern information below the Northern sections. We’re also including Sea Creatures now after they were added in the Summer Update last month!

Today’s guide is a bit of a light update though with August only bringing in a handful of new creatures in the Northern Hemisphere, and almost nothing new at all for the Southern Hemisphere.
