Animal Crossing: New Leaf is the sort of game where if you don’t pay attention, you’re bound to miss something cool. Turns out, each month presents brand-new content to enjoy, be it a country’s special holiday, an exclusive fish to catch or someone’s birthday.
July is no exception, and that being said, we listed all of the holidays, available fish, insects and deep-sea catches for your convenience. We also unlocked this information from our official Animal Crossing: New Leaf Guide, which you can purchase for $9.99.
Starcrossed Day (Japan): Visit a friend in Japan and enjoy the day’s festivities.
Bug-Off (3rd Saturday): Grab your best net and see if you can catch the bug of the day!
