If you’re trying to tick stuff off in your Critterpedia, June brings a whole host of new bugs and fish to Animal Crossing: New Horizons for both the northern and southern hemispheres, and even a returning face from earlier in the year.

With it now hitting summer in the real world and in-game, New Horizons has had a bit of a makeover in terms of its critter pool. All new fish and bugs for June are suitably summer-themed, but the most impressive additions are the many varieties of shark. There are many more new fish than there are bugs for the month of June, so be sure to have your fishing rod at the ready.

If you’re looking for all the new bugs and fish for both the northern and southern hemispheres, here’s everything you need to know in New Horizons.

There are 80 fish and 80 bugs to catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in total. If you’ve been playing since March, you should have only a handful of fish left to catch.

For the month of June, including the critters not added at the start of the month, there are 55 critters up for grabs in the north and 32 in the south.

As with every new month, there’s a whole host of critters from May also leaving the game to make way for all these new ones. Be sure to catch them while you can.

As you can see, it seems as if the northern hemisphere is getting quite a lot of new critters while those in southern lag behind significantly. It’s a totally different climate over there, so it does makes sense.

Bear in mind that if you miss out on any of the new critters coming to New Horizons in June, you always have the option of using time travel to go to a specific time and date.

And finally, while it might be obvious if you’ve been playing New Horizons for a while, don’t forget that you need at least a flimsy net to catch bugs and at least a flimsy fishing rod to catch fish.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is out now exclusively for Switch, will turn you into a nature fanatic. From our review:

“New Horizons is a great continuation of an already fantastic series of games, and paying back Tom Nook’s loan has never been so fun.”
