Animal Crossing: New Horizons "Exploring July" promo video released

From catching rare exotic beetles, to discovering all-new sea creatures, dive into everything July has to offer in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons diving update allows you to jump in the water directly from the harbor, creating problems for players selling and trading online

Don't let anyone cross you!

Scammers seem to be having a field day with the 7/3 Summer Update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Many players that host trades and sales from their island have been reporting thieves exploiting the new diving feature. While before, it was easy to block off your island from criminals by using fences, diving from the harbor now allows online villagers to swim around your island in attempt to access your vulnerable recipes and items. Make sure to keep your keepsakes hidden (or at least be more aware of who is coming to visit).

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Gullivarrr is fully of nods to Nintendo classics

This guy's been all over!

The latest update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings us a bunch of Summer content, as well as a visit from Gullivarrr. Players have noticed that Gullivarrr has managed to travel to some rather iconic places in his journeys! As long as you don't mind some spoilers, check out the video above to see where he's been.

Dataminers dig into Animal Crossing: New Horizons' latest update to find teases of what's to come

Digging deep to find new details

Animal Crossing: New Horizons just got a free Summer update, and dataminers were eager to dive in and see what else it was hiding. They've now come forward with some interesting news on content and more that should be appearing in-game sometime down the road.

Dataminer Ninji first shared new details on how NPCs spawn. The info was put together into a handy infographic, which you can see below.

Next up, there's an indicator that data has been added related to save data backups. We knew this feature was coming, but it looks like we might be getting access to it soon.

Following that, there's a rundown for the Mermaid Furniture set and the materials required to craft them, along with the new pirate items from Gulliver.

Lastly, there's a number of various tidbits for minor information, which has been rounded up below.

– More references internally to Dream Suite features
– Something unknown (“Vn”), added in the same location that referenced the different kinds of vegetables before
– Weather patterns have changed very slightly, giving you more hours in which stars can appear on the Fine02 and Fine06 patterns (2 of the 3 kinds of light showers)
– Not only has Nintendo changed Fine02 and Fine06, they’ve also changed the way light meteor showers work
– Stars now appear in all hours from 7 PM – 4 AM, not just those with clear/fine weather
– Saharah can now apparently sell multiple items at once
– On bug-off and fishing tourney days, the KK Slider concert is now moved to Sunday rather than Friday, so you won’t lose Friday’s NPC slot that week
– You can have both Gulliver and Gullivarr within the same week, but not on consecutive days

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' latest update causes an invisible wall glitch for some players

A bridge too far

Every update a game gets is supposed to make it a better experience, but there's always a risk that things could go a bit wonky in other areas. Unfortunately, that's what's happened with Animal Crossing: New Horizons's Version 1.3.0 update.

Some players are are reporting that the game's latest update has caused an issue with bridges. When they go to cross a bridge, they are met with an invisible wall. Obviously there are still other ways to get around, but not being able to use your bridges is quite annoying! Nintendo will surely have an update to fix this bug soon. Until then, get ready to take the long way around your island.
