Everything New in June 2022 (Bugs, Fish, Seasonal Items)

It will be June soon, which means new bugs, fish, and seasonal items for players to collect in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game has been out for more than three years, but there are new things to do each month, despite it taking place on a tiny island that players can customize. May was a busy enough month, with events like May Day, International Museum Day, and even Mushrooming Season for those who live in the southern hemisphere.

June has its own set of special events. Some happen on certain days, while some take place over multiple days. Then there are all the other things to do in the game. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has added a lot of content since it was released in March 2020. There will be something new to do no matter which day it is.
