Animal Crossing update adds swimming feature and more!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is releasing a free update that will roll out on July 3.

The update includes new features such as swimming and diving. Moreover, there will be new crafting options. It will also introduce mermaid-themed furniture to collect to give your home some summer vibes.

The update also comes with some changes to Gulliver, a bird who frequently washes ashore and will now be decked out as a pirate.

Apparently, this upcoming update is the next biggest rollout since the April update that brought about gardening features.

It seems Nintendo has a lot of plans for the game. “Another summer update is planned to be released in early August, so stay tuned for further details to come,” Nintendo said.
