Today’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct covered a number of updates that’ll be launching next month! Still, not everything made it into the over 20-minute long presentation. New Horizons is a big game and goes beyond the Nintendo Switch, after all. In fact, it’s one of the few Switch games to have its own service/app within the Nintendo Switch Online app. Maybe you don’t use NookLink all the time (or you’re amassing Nook Points thanks to those daily logins), but you’ll want to update the app Friday, November 5th as NookLink is getting updated too!

Announced via a press release from Nintendo, here’s what’s in store for NookLink next month:


The NookLink service in the Nintendo Switch Online app will be receiving an update on Nov. 5 as well, which will add more in-game items you can redeem with Nook Points and an island newspaper so you can read about the happenings on your island each day. You’ll also be able to check out tips for island living from Island Life 101 and view the Happy Home Network, all from the convenience of your smart device.




To access the Happy Home Network, more than likely you’ll need to purchase the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC for $24.99 or have an active Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.
