Here’s every new item you can get from Pirate Gulliver in Animal Crossing today

Gulliver has been washing up on the beaches of Animal Crossing towns and islands for decades now. He’s a clumsy bird that, for some reason, still needs a boat to get around. Although he hasn’t had much to offer players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a while now, the summer update changes all that.

Gulliver is back. Sort of. He’ll still wash up on your beach like before, but he’s sporting a new look and will dish out new rewards for getting him back in touch with his crew.

We’re not sure what has triggered his sudden career change, but a life of piracy clearly isn’t enough to finally give the silly bird his sea legs. When you find Pirate Gulliver washed up ashore — probably as you wade into the treacherous waters for a swim — you’ll have to poke and prod him just as much as before to get him up and about.

Once he’s running dry on nautical puns, it’s time to dig up his navigation tools and see him off your island once more. Your peaceful holiday home is no place for a problematic pirate.

Though plenty of us have taken to just ignoring him these days and letting him make his own way home, Pirate Gulliver has a bunch of new rewards to offer. He’ll send you one at random through the mail the day after you help him out.

With daily encounters being somewhat rare with Redd and Leif visiting from time to time, you’re going to want to make the most of any chance meeting with Gulliver. That’s the only way to get the entire Pirate set before he presumably hangs up his pirate hat and hands in his letter of resignation as the colder months set in.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is all about customization. With the version 2.0 update, returning players are opting for a complete island overhaul, while new players have plenty of tools and toys to work with. They'll re-shape the landscape of their island through terraforming, a mechanic that elated long-time Animal Crossing fans when it was announced in New Horizons. You will have to unlock the terraforming app, aka the Island Designer App, on your NookPhone if you plan to reshape the landmass around your island. Here's how to unlock terraforming in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and some helpful hints on using it best.

The 2.0 update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons packed in far more content than anyone could've anticipated. From new mechanics like cooking to farming and even a new camera system, this update has breathed fresh life into this game that already had so many people hooked. Some of the new additions are obvious and can be accessed immediately, while others take a little time and effort to earn. Perhaps the most substantial addition, The Roost, is just one of those new features you may not know how to get right away.

Brewster the pigeon, the owner and operator of The Roost coffee shop, was heavily featured as part of this update. Now that it is out, though, there are almost no clues in the game itself of how to find him and actually open up his cafe. Whether you're a caffeine connoisseur or not, The Roost is a perfect hang-out spot that you will certainly want to have access to on your island. To help you find Brewster and unlock The Roost for your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we'll show you all the steps that you need to do to set up shop.

Cooking in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

It's been well over a year, and yet Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still giving us more new things to do on our islands. With the latest 2.0 update, a whole host of new activities and features were added, both for free and as part of the paid DLC. While there were many parts that fans were eager to see return -- or show up for the first time in the series -- there was one aspect in particular everyone seemed to be craving more than others.

Cooking was the perfect ingredient to add to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in this update. Collecting materials, including food, fishing, and crafting, all felt like cooking was the next logical step, and thankfully, it was. Just like in real life, cooking isn't so easy, though. You'll need to do some prep work to get your kitchen in order before you can start whipping up some delicious dishes. If you want to know everything there is about how to cook in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we've got a step-by-step recipe for you to follow.
