New Year, new critters! Here’s the complete list of new bugs, fish and sea creatures coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in January.

January is a bad month for Animal Crossing: New Horizons players in the Northern Hemisphere hoping to fill the gaps in their Critterpedias. A grand total of zero new fish, bugs, and sea creatures arrive this month. We blame the chilly weather.

Meanwhile, in the Southern Hemisphere, players can look forward to the return of the Cyclommatus stag, Walking sticks, and Napoleonfish, to name just a few. Here’s the full lineup.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
