All info that makes for a perfect time filler was we all wait to see if there will be a major update this month. And if there is, will it be as big as rumoured? Only the game’s official Twitter will let us know for sure. But for now, all we can for now is wait and see, and get get catching some critters!

May proves to be a manageable month for Deep-Sea creatures in the Northern Hemisphere. Only one creature is leaving, and those that are arriving are here almost all day and are fairly slow or noticeable. If you need a few extra tips on how to catch creatures such as the Gigas Giant Clam be sure to check out last month’s Deep-Sea Creature Guide. As part of that guide includes a few tips for catching the larger and faster critters. Next up on the Animal Crossing New Horizons: May Bugs and Fish Guide lets see what is happening for our friends in the south.

Much like in the North this month in the Southern Hemisphere. Only a couple creatures leaving with most arriving being mostly ones who are out all day. However with them being Medium sized Creatures you might get frustrated if you find yourself catching the same thing over and over again. But fear not, you have plenty of time to capture them.
