Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Lots of bugs, fish, and sea creatures are on their way out in Animal Crossing: New Horizons – especially if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s typical for a swap to happen when a new month rolls over, and with October almost here, expect plenty of change in the Switch game.

Polygon was kind enough to put together handy charts showing everything that’s departing Animal Crossing: New Horizons in both hemispheres. Find out what’s leaving once September ends below.
