While you can access all content of the free content in the update version 2.0.0, the DLC component (Happy home paradise) hasn’t gone live yet. While we wait for the official Nintendo Support Patch Notes, here is the previously released information about the free portion of the update and what to expect from it:
Brewster will open a coffee shop: Something new is coming to a corner of the museum. The silent owner, Brewster, will open the roost after you do a favor to Museum Director Blathers. The Roost is a new place to take a relaxing break and enjoy a handpicked coffee. Here you can also meet some islanders. When using the amiibo phone in the cafe, you can invite other characters to join you by using compatible amiibo cards. If you want, you can even invite friends *** to your island and bring them to the roost to enjoy a relaxed cup of coffee together.
Take a boat tour with Kapp’n: Kapp’n hangs out on the pier and takes you to one of the remote islands in his boat. The sea shanty he serenades you with along the way is also part of the fun! You can reach islands with mysterious flora that has never been seen before, or islands with different seasons and times of day. What secrets are you waiting for?
Dig up gyroids: Up until now you could dig fossils out of the ground, now you can also find tops. Each top plays unique sounds. You can even customize them to suit their surroundings when you place them!
Shop at the Open Market on Harv’s Island: Harv’s Island is currently being renewed. With a little help from his girlfriend, Harriet, Harvey invites some shops to an open market on the island. Help support Bells to make it happen! Well-known visitors to your island like Redd, Saharah and Kicks will now have stores here, and Reese & Cyrus’ store offers furniture customizations that are not possible through DIY workbenches. In Katrina’s shop she will check out your luck of the day. Harriet can even teach you different hairstyles!
Get cooking: Cooking is added to DIY recipes. After you’ve grown vegetables like tomatoes, wheat, sugar cane, potatoes, and carrots in your garden, it’s time to combine your harvest or other ingredients and fill your dining table with delicious-looking dishes. Enjoy while it’s hot!
Further support for your island life: Nook, Inc. offers further support for your island life.
