The summer season is finally here – take advantage of it in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with a free summer update to the game.
Beginning on July 3, players will be able to swim in the waters off the coast of your island. Players can also dive deep to discover and scoop up a number of different sea creatures. A number of prospective additions can be added to the museum, and Blathers has a number of new facts to share with each of your new discoveries.
Also coming with this update is the friendly visitor Pascal. This fellow seems to have a love of scallops, and he may ask you for one if you discover it while diving. In exchange, he will be more than happy to share his mermaid-themed DIY recipes.
Gulliver will also make an appearance in this update, but he’ll be sporting slightly different, pirate-like clothing. Players can offer up a helping hand, and he’ll return the favor with a special reward to show his gratitude.
