If you've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons since its release, its island is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month. Congratulations at this point! There is also cause for joy when it comes to the selection of new insects and fish, because after the barren winter months with very few newcomers, there will finally be more animals on your island from March onwards. Our practical, fold-out list shows you all the beings that you shouldn't miss out on this month to complete your Faunapedia. The guide is sorted by insects, fish and marine animals and further broken down into creatures that are new this month, animals that still aren't and creatures that are available all year round. By clicking in the table of contents you will get to the desired entries. As usual, the information refers to islands in the northern hemisphere. For news, tips and everything else related to the life simulation on the Switch, visit the Animal Crossing: New Horizons topic page.
