Monthly and seasonal changes are a large aspect of the monstrous, award-winning appeal in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but it often compels some coordination on a completionist’s part. If you’re looking to fill up your museum, you’ll want to keep track of what bugs and fish are leaving every month – if you miss your chance to nab a certain critter, it could be months until you see one on your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island again (unless you happen across a time machine, but we won’t discuss that here). Luckily, the good folks at Polygon have us covered: they’ve assembled a nifty list of the bugs and fish that we’ll be saying goodbye to come October. Check it out below.
