Swimming was added to ACNH on July 3, 2021, and allowed players to enjoy swimming and diving in the ocean.
It also added new characters such as Pascal.
How to Swim Faster in Animal Crossing
While they can swim at a slow speed, players can also speed up while in the ocean.
To do that, players can press A repeatedly once they're in the ocean.
Just pressing A or holding it once will allow the player to swim at the slowest speed, but tapping the button repeatedly will make it so they swim just a bit faster through the water.
How to Swim in Animal Crossing
To swim, players must first purchase a Wetsuit.
The wetsuits can either be bought from Nook's Cranny (3,000) or at the Nook Stop for either Bells (3,000) or Nook Miles (800).
Purchasing directly through Nook's Cranny will give the player the Wetsuit immediately, while the other two options will result in the player having to wait a day until it arrives in the mail.
