Animal Crossing: New Horizons September: All the new fish and bugs to catch Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall

The fall season is upon us, and that means things are changing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in September. New bugs, fish, and underwater creatures arrive in the September update, which Nintendo has detailed in a new video clip. The new critters are spread across both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and there are some new items you can craft too.

Nintendo shows a selection of them off in the following clip. Distinctive-sounding Crickets arrive in the Northern Hemisphere, along with a colorful Monarch Butterfly. New underwater creatures include pink river Salmon and Oysters, which are found out at sea. To add to the September fall vibe, shaking certain trees can net you pine cones and acorns, which can then be used to craft fall-themed furniture.

A few days ago, we detailed all the bugs, fish, and sea creatures that left the game in August. Now, Polygon has assembled a neat list for all the critters entering Animal Crossing: New Horizons in September. Here’s the full table:
