Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Happy Home Paradise Expansion Is Out Now

Announced a few weeks ago in a Nintendo Direct, the huge new paid expansion for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, titled Happy Home Paradise, is out now!

Available for AUD $37.50, or as an inclusion in the new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass subscription, the DLC sees see players join the ‘Paradise Planning Team’, working alongside Lottie to build vacation homes for a series of clients. Players will get to design these homes across a series of island, placing pre-designated furniture and remodelling interiors and yards to fit the clients’ specifications.

As your skills as a designer deepen, you’ll be able to rework previous vacation homes and even matchmake clients into sharing joint vacation homes. You’ll also be able to rebuild and design various facilities on the Paradise Planning Team’s base island such as a school, restaurant and café.

Players will also be able to take photos of their vacation home projections, and see and share their designs with other users online. Eventually, players will be able to take their skills back to their main islands too, renovating their own homes and potentially even those of their island’s residents.
