Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update Adding Swimming, New Characters, And More (VIDEO)
With the vast majority of people stuck in quarantine over the last few months, and a good portion of them playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players are always looking to when Nintendo will release new content for the title. That said, the first wave of the free summer update is just around the corner and it features a plethora of fun things for all to do.
In a video released by the Animal Crossing Twitter account, fans are able to get a look at what the summer update will contain. The first notable feature highlighted is the ability to go swimming. That’s right, players will soon be able to jump off of their islands and into the ocean to find new creatures and even encounter some new characters. Of course, new creatures means players will be able to make new donations to their museums.
