The next Wildlife update is coming to Animal Crossing New Horizons in August, meaning new Fish and Bugs to collect over the coming weeks.
This follows a range of new features being added to the popular Nintendo Switch game at the end of July.
The second wave of Nintendo’s Summer expansion has made it possible to visit other islands when your character lies down for a nap in a bed.
Getting a visit from Luna makes it possible to upload your own island too, so that others can explore what you’ve created.
One of the best parts of this new feature is that while you can visit and interact with other islands, you can’t make any permanent changes, making for a more casual multiplayer experience.
But this isn’t the only change coming to the game in August, with Nintendo also refreshing the animals and bugs that will be available in the wild this month.
New fish to catch and bugs will be available in Animal Crossing New Horizons, although the changes might not be quite as big as in the past.
A much smaller list has been announced for August 2020, so it will take less time to grab everything that’s available.

“Put your personal spin on the fireworks display by using your own custom design pattern to see it shot in the air as a firework in the sky.
Island Backup & Restoration Service – Nintendo Switch Online members can enable the new island backup service, which automatically uploads island and user save data to the internet at certain times.
“If your Nintendo Switch system is lost or damaged, you may be able to recover your island paradise as long as you’ve enabled island backup.
“In the event of loss or damage, contact Nintendo Consumer Support about restoring the island and user save data on your new or repaired Nintendo Switch system. After your island data and individual player data is restored, you can get back to building your island community!
“Additional details can be found on the Nintendo Consumer Support page when the update goes live. The island backup feature is separate from the Save Data Cloud functionality offered for select Nintendo Switch games through Nintendo Switch Online.
“A function specific to Animal Crossing: New Horizons to move users and save data to another system is planned for later this year. Details will be announced in the future.”
