This week’s big release on Switch, or more specifically Update, was version 2.0 of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Many of the additions to the free update have been in demand for some time, including Brewsters Café, Kreisel, Kapp’n Boat Rides, metric tons of articles and much more.
There’s also the Happy Home Paradise DLC, which is a charming paid add-on that allows you to develop your design skills. You can either buy it outright or sign up for the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack and gain access that way, both good options if you want a meaty addition to the game.
We had a lot of fun exploring the details of these updates, and it’s great how many little details there are when it comes to additional goodies like cooking and decorating. Social media is also full of people having a fun time, and many players are showing a dizzying commitment to gathering everything and creating incredibly attractive room designs, among other things.
but, we’d like to hear what you think of the update and the DLC. Nintendo’s goal with this (and only) “major” update is to expand the game for newbies and to lure long-term players back. Do you think it succeeded? Do you have the DLC or are you planning to get it? So many questions…
