It’s been more than two years now since Animal Crossing New Horizons was released on the Nintendo Switch, much to the delight of fans. And although the title will never receive a big update again, forgetting these superb features from previous games, many players may have missed out on the new features added to the game last year. Maybe you are only discovering ACNH today and that is why we are offering you 6 things not to miss in September 2022.
The new fish and insects
September is synonymous with the appearance of new fish and insects, as well as sea creatures. In the northern hemisphere, summer is coming to an end and will soon give way to autumn (the grass is a little darker green, by the way), while in the southern hemisphere, spring will be here any minute.
Cornimer is back!
Thanks to the big 2.0 update of November 2021, many new features have been added to ACNH and in particular the expansion of Joe’s island with a location dedicated to the trailers of Serge, Astrid, Rounard, Blaise and even Tortimer, a famous character from the old opuses of the license. Indeed, Tortimer was the mayor of the village and he then retired to make way for Marie.
If his face tells you anything, you may not know his other personality: Cornimer ! It is very important to go and talk to him every day because he will give you tassels !
Resources for the month of September
With autumn settling in the northern hemisphere, it’s an opportunity to collect acorns and pine cones to craft some pretty forest furniture! In the Southern Hemisphere, there is always time to enjoy bamboo.
Autumn has only just begun in Animal Crossing Switch! In addition to mushrooms and maple leaves, the month of November always allows to harvest pine cones and acorns to make beautiful furniture.
The last insectosafari
In the Northern Hemisphere only, you can enjoy the last insect tournament of the summer, organized by Djason. It takes place on Saturday, September 24, 2022 and, there again, it is an opportunity to capture a multitude of insects to complete your Museum or resell them. Thanks to the points obtained, you will be able to receive exclusive objects to decorate your island.
You can participate in a tournament that will test your skills with your net on Animal Crossing New Horizons! In this guide, we explain the rules, rewards and how to participate in the Insectosafari of summer 2022!
