Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Walker Cicada
This cicada is smaller than other varieties.
There are many different varieties of cicadas to catch and donate in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of these is the walker cicada, which is now appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere.
Specifically, the walker cicada will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from August to September. According to AllGamers, it will appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from February to March. The walker cicada can appear on the sides of trees at any time between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Like other cicadas, the walker cicada makes noise as it hangs on the side of a tree. In our short gameplay clip below, you can hear the sound a walker cicada makes so you’ll know what to listen for in your own game as you try to find one of these bugs. (Also keep in mind that the walker cicada is smaller than other cicadas.)
A single walker cicada can be sold for 400 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, or for a few more Bells if you sell it to Flick when he visits your island.
Since there are multiple kinds of cicadas to catch in New Horizons, it may take some time for a walker cicada to actually appear on your island. That being the case, check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
