Similarly, some critters will also leave the New Horizons islands at the end of January and won’t return for a while. The good news is only a handful of fish, bugs, and sea creatures will depart both hemispheres after this month. For those who haven’t caught the critters available during the respective seasons (summer and winter), this is a perfect opportunity to do so.

Continuing with the trend of quiet months, February notices a pattern of a low number of critter arrivals. Players in the Northern Hemisphere will have only one new bug appearing on their islands because of the cold winter. Comparatively, Southern Hemisphere players will notice more critter arrivals, with summer in full effect.
