Animal Crossing: New Horizons Version 1.3.0 Is Now Live – Adds Swimming, Diving, Wet Suits And More

Following on from its official reveal last week, Nintendo has now rolled out the first-wave summer update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons alongside the release of version 1.3.0.

Here’s a full recap of what you can expect:

  • Swimming and Diving – Grab a wet suit and get aquatically acquainted with your island marine life when swimming and diving arrive to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Swim in the inviting waters off the coast of your island and dive to discover and scoop up sea creatures that inhabit your island’s ecosystem. Keep your eyes peeled for any prospective additions to the museum, and make sure to listen for fun facts from Blathers when you donate your new discoveries.
  • Pascal Brings Rewarding Recipes – While swimming, you might meet someone new! The friendly visitor Pascal seems to love scallops, and if you discover one while diving, he may ask you if he can have it. As a thank you, he’ll share some of his mermaid-themed DIY recipes.
  • Gulliver? – After downloading the free update, a familiar face will occasionally wash up on shore, but sporting slightly different, pirate-like clothing. Offer him a helping hand and he’ll send a special reward to show his gratitude.

Another update will follow this early on in August. Specific details about the next update haven’t been shared just yet so stay tuned. We’ll also update this post with the full patch notes when they’re released.
