Get ready to return to your island getaway once again because Summer is here! Nintendo has announced the next update coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons starting July 3rd. In the Animal Crossing New Horizons Summer Update, the ocean is now ready to be explored so don your masks and flippers because there are plenty of sea creatures to find! You will also be able to donate what you find to Blather’s Museum. A new visitor called Pascal will also come to visit and will trade DIY recipes with you for scallops. Even Gulliver is getting dressed for the occasion… as a pirate?!! That isn’t all for Summer though as there is a second update coming early August!

About The Animal Crossing New Horizons Summer Update
The update will add the following features and characters to the game:
- Swimming and Diving – Grabbing a wet suit, players can get aquatically acquainted with island marine life when swimming and diving arrive to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. When swimming in the inviting waters off the coast of their island, players can dive to discover and scoop up sea creatures that inhabit their island’s ecosystem. It’s worth looking out for any prospective additions to the museum and hear fun facts from Blathers when donating discoveries.
- Pascal Brings Rewarding Recipes – While swimming, players might meet someone new! The friendly visitor Pascal seems to love scallops, and if players discover one while diving, he’ll ask if he can have it. As a thank you, he’ll share some of his mermaid-themed DIY recipes.
- Gulliver? – After downloading the free update, someone looking familiar, but with slightly different, pirate-like clothing, occasionally washes up on the shore. Once players offer him a hand, he will send a special reward to show his gratitude for the help.
Another summer update is planned to be released in early August.
