Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave 1 Adds Pascal and Swimming

Animal Crossing New Horizons Summer update

The first Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update is on the way. Nintendo announced that two are coming to add new content to the game, and the first will appear on July 3, 2020. Once it is added and installed, people will be able to swim in the ocean and meet new NPCs. The second will show up in August 2020.

Here’s the announcement trailer from Twitter, which was shared by “Tom Nook.”

The main attraction is that Animal Crossing swimming has returned. When people get a wet suit in the first Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update, they’ll be able to head out into the ocean. There, they can dive for new sea creatures or meet Pascal the otter. Pascal will provide recipes for new items if you have scallops for him.

There’s also an old NPC with a new possible opportunity. Gulliver now has a pirate look, which will result in different rewards.

Here are some screenshots of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave One content.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch.
