Animal Crossing New Horizons has so much to offer players in the way of letting you literally create your dream utopia. When you first start up the game and begin to explore the island, you’ll notice that there are rivers and lakes scattered about the island as well as a big ol’ ocean surrounding the land itself. If you’re wondering whether you can swim in Animal Crossing New Horizons, the answer might come to be a slight disappointment. Here’s what you need to know.
Can You Swim in Animal Crossing New Horizons?
In past Animal Crossing games, specifically New Leaf, you were able to go to a special island to dive into the water to collect items. Unfortunately, in New Horizons, there is no way to swim or dive into the water this time around.
You can cross rivers by using a vaulting pole that can be crafted and you can walk along the shoreline to pick up seashells and other items, but you can’t actually jump into the water and splash about.
Nintendo is known to add new content to existing games in the form of DLC or free updates so who knows? Nintendo might add the ability to swim in the water down the line and if that happens, we will make sure to update this guide accordingly. For now, you’re just gonna have to deal with staying inland and continue to do those menial chores we love doing so much.
And hopefully, that answers your question about whether you can swim in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
