Animal Crossing Diving Update

A new summer update is now available to download in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The version 1.3.0 update brings back the diving mechanic that was first introduced in New Leaf. After purchasing a wet suit at Nook's Cranny or through the Nook Shopping app, you'll be able to swim around your island and dive for sea creatures. There are a total of 40 sea creatures to find and they rotate out via time of day, time of year, and hemisphere. They can be donated to the museum and will appear in tanks alongside your fish.

Pascal is back from New Leaf as well. You can find him while swimming about and he'll trade any scallops you find for mermaid theme DIY recipes. Gulliver will continue to appear washed up on beaches, but he will sometimes sport pirate themed clothing and give you new special rewards. There are also more items to spend nook miles on.

Additionally, another summer update is planned for early August. We don't know the details of what that will bring, but stay tuned for more information!
