New features[edit]

Sea creatures and swimming[edit]

A player going out to swim.

Sea creatures and the swimming mechanic make their return in 1.3.0. In order to obtain sea creatures, the player must obtain a wet suit from either Nook's Cranny, Nook Shopping, or Nook Stop.

There are 40 sea creatures in total, ten more than New Leaf. New sea creatures include Sea Pig, Slate Pencil Urchin, Moon Jellyfish, Mussel, Whelk, Gigas Giant Clam, Umbrella Octopus, Vampire Squid, Firefly Squid, Gazami Crab, Dungeness Crab, Sea Pineapple, and Venus' Flower Basket. The Ear Shell, Clam, and Horsehair Crab did not return from New Leaf. The museum will host any sea creatures in the already existing fish exhibit.

New characters[edit]

Pascal[edit]

The player catching a Scallop, with Pascal behind the player.

Pascal makes his return in 1.3.0, appearing when a player catches a Scallop. If the player chooses to give their scallop to Pascal, he will give them either a DIY recipe in the Mermaid Series, a Mermaid Fishy Dress, a Mermaid Princess Dress, or a Pearl. Pearls can also be found from a small, stationary shadow, and can be used for DIY recipes. However, Pearls are not considered a sea creature.

Gullivarrr[edit]

The player encountering Gullivarr.

Gullivarrr was a new NPC added in 1.3.0, with a similar mission as Gulliver, but requiring the player to dive in to find his Communicator. When completed, he will mail the player any furniture from the Pirate Series or pirate-themed clothing.

Events and holidays[edit]

Bamboo Grass placed on a player's island.

A new Nook Shopping seasonal event has been added. To celebrate Tanabata, a traditional Japanese festival, Bamboo Grass is available to purchase throughout July.

Dialog changes[edit]

The following dialog changes were made:

  • Leif:
Original text Modified text
I'd love to introduce you to all the little seeds and saplings I've got with me today! I'd love to introduce you to all the little seeds and starts I've got with me today!
I'll be here if you change your mind. I'll be here if you need me.
I've heard that my good pal Timmy started a shop here, so I thought I'd pay him a visit. I've heard that my good pal Timmy moved out here, so I thought I'd pay him a visit.
Oh! Heya, <player name>. Isn't this the most perfect day to shop for flowers? Oh! Hello! Isn't this the most perfect day to shop for flowers?
And it's currently in season, so you can enjoy those magical blossoms as soon as you plant this little friend. This is the time of year when it looks its very best, so plant this little friend soon to see it in bloom.
  • Smug villagers:
Original text Modified text
Glad you asked! Right now, I'm making a wonderful and amazing <DIY recipe>. I got the idea to make it from a crazy dream I had the other night. Glad you asked! I'm just making <DIY recipe>! The recipe came to me in a dream...

Character changes[edit]

  • Leif, Saharah, and Kicks are no longer guaranteed to show up every week. Instead, any special visitor can appear on any weekday. In the result of the change to NPC schedules, K.K. Slider now appears on Sundays instead of a Friday in the case of an event taking place on Saturday.
  • Saharah can now allow the player to continue the conversation after buying an item.
  • Wisp's item gifts chances have changed slightly. His clothing category price range of 300 –  4,999 Bells has changed to 300 –  2,999 Bells.
