Animal Crossing Southern Hemisphere Bugs Arriving in June

Sorry if you were holding out hope for bug collection, southern hemisphere. There’s absolutely nothing new this month for you. Honestly it’s a bit of a disappointment, especially with Nintendo working on a couple of “summer” updates. (Summer in quotes because seasons are relative to hemispheres). That update arrives in just a few days so stay tuned as we’ll have guides available for all of the new underwater critters to catch with swimming and diving being added.

And that’s it! Best of luck when it comes to completing your collection.
