Animal Crossing New Horizons May 2021 - New Fish, Bugs, Sea Creatures

Animal Crossing: New Horizons players play the game for a multitude of different reasons.

Some play to escape the stresses of the real world, some want to design the best island and houses in the game, while others, like myself, like to try and collect all of the fish, bugs, sea creatures and fossils.

That’s why players, including me, return to New Horizons each month to see which new fish, bugs and sea creatures have arrived to help fill up the inventory.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the new fish, bugs and sea creatures in Animal Crossing for May 2021.
