All the New Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bugs, Fish, and Sea Creatures Available in February

January 26, 2021 4:18 pm

February is almost here, meaning there are some fresh changes to look forward to in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As usual, a fresh combination of bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures will become available for the players to catch at the beginning of the new month.

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.

It is important to donate the critters you catch to the Museum for completing your NookPhone’s critterpedia and unlocking golden tool items. To accomplish this, it is necessary to know which new ones will appear, to get a head start. Consider this article as an Animal Crossing guide for all the new critter arrivals in February.
