If you’re a mermaid who loves video games, you’ve probably heard about the new mermaid set in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game’s summer update introduces new mechanics, materials, and recipes that will make you FLIP with excitement!

This Animal Crossing update allows you to go swimming and diving in the ocean, so starting out requires buying a wetsuit. There are several new materials you can gather from the ocean floor, but you want scallops for the mermaid set.

Pascal is a new visitor (who may be the most adorable otter ever!), and you can see him while you swim once per day. When you find a scallop, he’ll randomly appear and ask for it. If you give it to him, he’ll give you a pearl, DIY crafting recipe, or a clothing item. 

You’ll need the pearls to craft your mermaid furniture, so make sure you gather at least 20 pearls for the entire mermaid set in Animal Crossing!

Mermaid furniture and clothing list

There are 14 mermaid furniture recipes and 4 mermaid clothing pieces available in Pascal’s mermaid set1. This means that there are so many exciting ways for mers to decorate and show off their fashion sense! All you need are the materials you collect from the ocean and beach, as well as a handful of stones and iron nuggets2.

Each piece of furniture has a cutesy pink, baby blue, and white color scheme with an ethereal pearlescent finish. This makes it so you see a shimmer and slight color change when you look at it from different angles! They also feature shell, starfish, and fish shapes and patterns!
