A new year has begun in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, meaning there are heaps of fresh changes to look forward to. As usual, the month of January brings with it an assortment of new bugs, fish, and sea creatures for the players to catch. Similarly, some other critters will also leave the New Horizons islands at the end of the month and won’t return for quite a while.

Sadly, players in the Northern Hemisphere don’t have any new critter arrivals this month with winter in full swing. However, that also means none of the bugs and fish are departing the Northern Hemisphere islands at the end of January because of the cold winter. For those who haven’t caught the critters available during the season, this is a perfect opportunity to do so.

Meanwhile, players in the Southern Hemisphere have quite an impressive amount of new critter arrivals in January, thanks to the warm summer months. Similar to the other region, when it comes to critters leaving the Southern Hemisphere islands at the end of the month, there is only a handful.

If you want to complete your NookPhone’s critterpedia for unlocking golden tool items, it is important to donate the critters you catch to the Museum. In order to accomplish this, it is necessary to know which ones have arrived this month as well as the ones that will leave when the month ends.
