share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

October is coming to a close and with a new month comes changes to the critter pool in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

As with previous months, we'll see some different bugs, fish and sea creatures leave the game.


When October ends and November begins we'll see some new species making their way to our towns!

For the time being, we've assembled a list of all the bugs leaving the game after October in the northern and southern hemispheres.

So if you need any of these bugs to complete your Critterpedia, now would be a good time to catch them. Otherwise, who knows when you'll be able to catch them again, or donate to Blathers at the Museum.

At the same time, it's also worth familiarising yourself with the various ACNH Fish and ACNH Sea Creatures who are also leaving the game at the end of October.


Equally, whilst we have you, don't forget there's a huge Animal Crossing New Horizon's Halloween Event taking place on Saturday October 31. So make sure you don't miss out!

For now, let's turn out attention back to those bugs who are leaving the game in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres after October.
