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

10 months ago 1 Comment

We’re beginning to enter spooky season, so it’s time for a New Bugs, Fish, and Sea Creatures Arriving in October 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 October begins that weren’t previously available to catch in September!

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 a few months ago.

Today’s guide features a heavy change in creatures for the Southern Hemisphere as they fully embrace the Spring season, including the arrival of Cherry Blossoms! On the Northern side, things are much quieter.

Finally, it’s worth noting that we’re getting far enough into the game’s lifecycle that you will see some creatures arriving that have already previously been available in another month earlier this year. We write these guides inclusive of no matter when someone may have started playing or taken a break, so repeats will show up sometimes!
