Animal Crossing: New Horizons – bugs and fish leaving at the end of May

Posted on May 30, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

May is almost over, which means that the bugs and fish for the month will soon be swapped out in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Players have just a couple of days remaining until they’re swapped out.

Thanks to Polygon, we have a pair of charts showing which bugs and fish are leaving at the end of May. There are two versions since things will differ depending on whether you’re in the northern or southern hemisphere.

Here are the full charts:
