3. Island Aesthetics

In the latest January 2021 ACNH Updates, there are environmental changes happening throughout both hemispheres. Meanwhile, there’re building Aesthetics Changes, for example, Nook's cranny has less festive winter decorations now.


- Northern Hemisphere. From January the 1st, the players in the northern hemisphere will see holly bush's lose flowers and return to regular green bushes. However red and pink camellia bushes will start blooming instead and continue to flower well into spring.

- Southern Hemisphere. Players in the southern hemisphere will be able to see some changes about plants in Animal Crossing. Such as the pink and blue hydrangeas that began blooming in December will return to regular bushes from January the 20th. Luckily, you can replace it with red and yellow hibiscus instead.

4. Fishing Tourney Event


Animal Crossing 2021 updates for Fishing Tourney Events will hold on 9th January in both hemispheres. No matter what region you're playing in, players in both the northern and southern hemispheres will see the first fishing tourney of the year. This is surprisingly only the fourth fishing tourney since the launch of the game. Naturally, different hemispheres will feature slightly different fish during the event. As players in the northern hemisphere will be taking part in the winter fishing tourney, and players in the southern hemisphere will be taking part in the summer fishing tourney.

What Can You Do During Fishing Fishing Tourney?

All you need to do is catch as many fish as you can before the timer runs out. CJ the host of the fishing tourney event will give you three minutes to catch as many fish as possible and you'll earn points for every fish you catch. The more points you earn the more prizes you can get. Furthermore, it's a great opportunity to get some items you missed in the past or some variants of items you already have such as the fish print poster which comes in a variety of designs.


To craft as much fishing bait as you can before the ACNH 2021 update begins.

5. Bug Off

Starting from January the 16th, 2021, Aimal Crossing New Horizons in the southern hemisphere summer season, players get to take part in the first bug-off contest of the year. Flick will stop by the plaza to host the latest bug off, which is only the third bug off to be hosted in the southern hemisphere since the game released.

Like CJ's fishing tourneys, the bug off challenge is to catch as many bugs as you can before the timer runs out and try to earn a bunch of points. With the point, you can exchange for prizes, but there's currently no way to attract extra bugs. This is an opportunity to enjoy the event and win some items you may have missed or pick up a different trophy from last time. Unfortunately, players in the northern hemisphere won't see a bug off until June, but you can always visit a friend in the southern hemisphere use ACNH Nook Miles Tickets.

6. Critters


Critters probably are the most obvious change to be noticed in Animal Crossing New Horizons January updates. The bugs fish and deep-sea creatures that spawn to encountered around the New Horizons island. The types of critters you can encounter changes every month, although you tend to see more as the season changes rather than in the middle of a season.

 In the northern hemisphere, in the middle of cold winter that there are no new critters swimming around. However, there's a total of 21 new critters to catch for players in the southern hemisphere. Such as cicada shell, the sweet fish and the moon jellyfish.

7. Festivale Event


Festivale Event is based on real-world carnival style celebrations. Nintendo revealed the next ACNH 2021 update is scheduled for late January and teases the special character “pave” now that's all we really know about the 2021 event update changes in Animal Crossing New Horizons. It's expected to drop in the last few days of January with an all-new trailer up to a week beforehand.
