The first of two summer updates has just been released for Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Today’s patch marks the return of diving from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. You can swim in the ocean, cannonball off cliffs, and dive to collect sea creatures (which can then be donated to the museum)! To start swimming, just load up the game and purchase a wet suit from Nook’s Cranny for 3,000 Bells.
A strange alter-ego of Gulliver will now occasionally wash up on shore, now with his own pool of exclusive furniture. You can also buy a new Nook Inc. wet suit via the Nook Miles redemption program (it’ll cost you 800 miles). Finally, Nook Shopping has added a few seasonal items to its catalog, so be sure to purchase them before it’s too late!
A second update for New Horizons is slated for sometime in August. We still don’t have any information pertaining to its contents, but we’ll be sure to post updates when more features are announced!
