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.
