Animal Crossing New Horizons - Happy Home Paradise DLC

As good as Animal Crossing: New Horizons is, series fans have been disappointed with Nintendo’s post-launch support for the game, but recently, the company sort of made up for those deficiencies when they announced not only a major new free content update coming up soon, but also a new paid expansion in the form of Happy Home Paradise.

Of course, previously, Nintendo had confirmed that the aforementioned free update, Version 2.0, will be the last big free update for the game, but does that mean we can perhaps look forward to more paid content coming in the future? Well, as it turns out, that won’t be the case. In a statement to IGN, Nintendo confirmed that Happy Home Paradise will be the first and last paid DLC for the game.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise introduces a new gameplay experience in which the player joins the Paradise Planning team and helps make their client’s dream resort home become a reality,” a Nintendo spokesperson said. “It is a major update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and offers a distinguishing and different gameplay experience. Therefore, it made sense to include it as the first and only paid DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”

So there you go. When Version 2.0 and Happy Home Paradise launch on November 5, Nintendo will be winding down support for the game in terms of both free and paid updates. While it’s possible that we get the minor free update here and there, but it looks like the bulk of the game’s post-launch pipeline will be drained soon. Of course, the upcoming new content promises dozens hours of gameplay, if not more, so fans have plenty to look forward to.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on Nintendo Switch.
