Gulliver is also getting a new look with this update, though it looks like that doesn't change how his fellow sailors feel about him.

Nintendo has announced the first summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

There's huge news today for Animal Crossing: New Horizons players still devoted to the most pleasantly addictive way to stay kind of sane stuck at home during the pandemic.

However, it's not only new fish arriving in July as there will also be the arrival of a summer update which will allow you to join all of the fish by swimming. Yep, just like in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you'll need to be wearing the right outfit before you can take a dip in the deep sea.

The action-adventure game will also support cross-gen play, so you can continue playing with friends whether they upgrade or not.

The latest information from Nintendo confirms that they are bringing new features to Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch in July. Swim in the inviting waters off the coast of your island and dive to discover and scoop up sea creatures that inhabit your island's ecosystem. Keep your eyes peeled for any prospective additions to the museum, and make sure to listen for fun facts from Blathers when you donate your new discoveries.

The main attraction is that Animal Crossing swimming has returned.

And it's probably a good reason for anyone who went hard on New Horizons in the early days of the pandemic and ran out of things to do to revisit the game.
