Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Ver. 1.3.0 is now available

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!

Summer updates announced for Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Nintendo (via the Animal Crossing Twitter account) has announced a pair of free updates for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The first of these updates launches worldwide on July 3, and brings back swimming and diving from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Sea creatures make their return as well, and can be donated to the museum. It seems they’ll be donated to and combined with the existing fish section.

The second update launches in August, though no concrete information is available on it yet. It was presented with a fireworks background, though, which implies they’ll be making a return soon, too. Check out the full announcement video via this link.
