ANALYST

Animal Crossing games have the really interesting feature of rotating the presence of certain flora and fauna in the game.

A lot of fish, deep-sea creatures and bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are seasonal, which means that they appear during specific times of the day, month, or year. As the month of June nears its end, it will be time for many insects, fish, and deep-sea creatures to take their leave.

However, this also means that there will be a host of new bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures appearing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the month of July.

Bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures that will be leaving Animal Crossing: New Horizons in July

With the arrival of new ones in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there will be some who will be bidding their farewell, for now. A notable void will be left by the Honeybee as it takes its leave in July. As for the aquatic life, the tadpole and seaweed will also be leaving in July as well.

Sure, this rotation of seasonal fauna makes players miss some of these elements, but it somewhat adds to the realism in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
