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

3 months ago 2 Comments

The seasons are changing in both hemispheres as September arrives, so it’s time for a New Bugs, Fish, and Sea Creatures Arriving in September Guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH)! 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 September begins that weren’t previously available to catch in August!

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. Sea Creatures are included as well after they were added in the Summer Update a couple months ago.

Today’s guide marks one of the more significant updates as a healthy selection of new critters in every category can be found in both hemispheres, including a few new Sea Creatures too in each.
