Animal Crossing is filled to the brim with activities for players to enjoy. However, when the sun sets and all of the stores in the game close for the day, you might be wondering what else there is to do. Here are the best things to do at night in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Best Things to Do at Night in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Catch Night Bugs
Did you know there are some bugs that only come out at night? A good example of this is the tarantula, which comes out between 7:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., so the only time you can catch them is after the sun sets.
If you are trying to fill your museum collection, it’s absolutely necessary that you spend time catching bugs at night. Even if you’re not interested in collecting, tarantulas sell for 8,000 bells, so you could use the time to stock up on them to make some extra money.
Catch Night Fish
Just like bugs, there are some fish that only come out at night, such as some types of sharks. Like bugs, some are quite rare and some are even seasonal, so make sure you check which fish are catchable in the game right now.
Whether you’re trying to add species to your museum or selling them for bells, there’s something very relaxing about fishing late at night while listening to the game’s calming soundtrack.
Look for Wisp
Wisp is a ghost who appears on islands only at night. He gets spooked very easily, and when you try to talk to him, his spirit breaks up into five pieces and scatters around the island.
If you return all five pieces of his spirit, he will reward you with a rare or expensive item. Wisp won’t appear every single night, but since he can only appear after it is dark, be sure to check your entire island for him floating around.
