Its September, which in our world as in Animal Crossing: New Horizons means new a new range of Bugs, Fish, and Deep Sea creatures have joined the game with some leaving. So with the nights drawing in, the weather getting colder, or if you are in the Southern Hemisphere the days starting to get longer and the days sunnier its time to crack open our Animal Crossing New Horizons September Bugs and Fish Guide to give you all the info you’ll need to catch ’em all!

In our guide you’ll find a list of the all critters that will be joining us this month in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere and which ones will be leaving us at the end of the month! You will also find their locations, the time of day they can be caught, their value in Bells, as well as any additional information you may need. Information that is absent in Nintendo’s own video but they are being oddly quite as of late so we understand why.
