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

4 months ago 1 Comment

The final month of Winter (or Summer) is here, so it’s time for a New Bugs, Fish, and Sea Creatures Arriving in February Guide for Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH)! We’ll tell you every new critter joining your island this month in both 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 some new fish, bugs, and sea creatures on your island to catch when February begins that weren’t previously available to catch during January! This guide is applicable for all years, including 2023.

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.

Much like last month, February is a month that’s mostly about the Southern Hemisphere as these islands continue to receive many creatures during their summer, with only one new bug found in the Northern Hemisphere.

Note that creatures are the same between 2020 – 2023, so you will see similar critters if you have played for a long time. This guide is written inclusive of no matter when someone may have started playing or taken a break, so repeats will show up sometimes!
