During the Halloween update video, it was announced that Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ NookLink feature was also getting an update in “Early October”. Looks like that time is now, as you can now download it to your phone’s Nintendo Switch Online app. So, what’s new?

Once you’ve installed the NookLink update, you’ll be able to perform Reactions using your phone! It’s a handy addition for anyone who uses the app frequently when playing with friends, as you no longer have to use the in-game Reaction menu. Just like typing messages, it has its own menu where all Reactions are displayed, with recently used ones appearing at the top. Just in time for the Halloween Reactions due to arrive in game soon!
Be sure to keep watering those pumpkins and buying up that candy. We’re already a week into October and Jack’s Halloween festivities are haunting their way to players on October 31st.
