Switch Online Add-on Package and Animal Crossing DLC: here are the contents and prices


During the Direct in late September, Nintendo announced the Change Plugin Package Online, which is an expansion that offers adds some games from the library of Nintendo 64 me SEGA Mega Drive to the service catalog, which already includes NES and SNES.

And it is another Direct, the one that today is dedicated to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, an opportunity to reveal the prices of the service and even something else. The 12-month individual subscription to Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack will cost 39.99 euros, while the familiar (valid up to a maximum of 8 Nintendo accounts) will cost instead 69.99 euros. Release date is Tuesday October 26th.

In addition to the previously announced Nintendo 64 and SEGA Mega Drive titles, this “premium version” of the subscription will also include the Animal Crossing New Horizons Happy Home Paradise expansion – a real paid DLC, accompanying the free update 2.00. Both novelties are loaded with new content: we see them in detail below, in the dedicated section of the article.

Closing the speech of Switch Online, we can assume that Nintendo in the future chooses to link other DLC to this type of subscription, to some extent. Or not: in any case the content you have access to is linked to the presence of an active subscription, and this implies that once it has expired it will no longer be possible to play with the Happy Home Paradise DLC. However, fear not: your saved data will be preserved and therefore once you have reactivated your subscription, you will be able to resume from where you left off.


Bartolo and La Piccionaia are back. We knew it would happen, but see them again in polygons and textures in the part of the trailer dedicated to theAnimal Crossing: New Horizons Free Update 2.00, arriving in November 5th, is something that warms the heart. However, in addition to the renewed possibility of having a good coffee on the upper floor of the Museum, there is more.

The island of Fiorilio, thanks to our help, you can indeed become one square full of life, populated with shops and familiar faces of the saga. Then comes the possibility of visit the mysterious islands with Remo (which will give us proof of your singing ability as always), do group stretches in the plaza, grow and cook new varieties of vegetables and vegetables, as well as a series of novelties and customizations. It will also be possible to give a new authoritarian grip on the life of the people. when issuing ordinances that will affect the lives of the inhabitants: Dpcm simulator. It is quite ironic if you think that the success of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, unprecedented for the saga, is attributable to the outbreak of the pandemic and the closure.

And then there is the DLC payable Happy Home Paradise, which, as the title suggests, incorporates the mechanics of the spin-off Happy Home Designer released in 2015 on 3DS. In essence, it will be a game within a game. Everything is set in an archipelago with islands of different characteristics (there are desert, leafy, frozen …): the player’s objective is help the different inhabitants to build and furnish the vacation home of their dreams.

As mentioned, Happy Home Paradise will be playable with an active subscription to the Switch Online add-on pack, but it will also be possible to purchase it permanently and separately from November 5th by 24.99 euros. Here are more details provided by Nintendo about the content of the DLC.

  • Join the Casimira Vacanze team: Clients with many different requests will visit a new area, located in the archipelago where Casimira Vacanze is based. You can talk to clients to find out about their wishes and then get to work making them come true!
  • Design Dream Vacation Rentals – Once you’ve chosen an island for your client’s vacation rental, you can take care of the interiors by adding pre-arranged furniture delivered in advance. As you design vacation rentals, you’ll learn various techniques, from resizing rooms to adding items like partitions, dividers, columns, background sound, lighting, and more. The vacation rental theme will vary by client and you will have many projects to work on. You can also decorate the exteriors
  • Renovate the houses you have designed and suggest coexistence: as you gain experience, you will unlock new furniture, and you will also be able to make suggestions. For example, you can offer to renovate former clients’ vacation homes with different furnishings, or even suggest two characters to share a vacation rental.
  • Design Structures: On the island that houses Casimira Vacanze’s office there are several empty buildings. Casimira wants to make the island more complete, so that you can design structures such as a school, a restaurant and a hospital
  • Get Inspired by Beautiful Homes Network – Take photos of the vacation rentals you’ve designed and save them to your catalog, which you can open via the Nook Phone “Network of Beautiful Homes” app in the game. Through this application you can also see the creations of other players from around the world and follow your favorite users
  • Use amiibo to invite other clients: Normally, your job is to go looking for clients, in the archipelago, who dream of having their own vacation home. However, with the Animal Crossing amiibo cards that are already available, you can invite a specific customer. With amiibo, you can even design vacation homes for busy locals like Fuffi or Mirco and Marco!
  • Bring the techniques you have learned to your island – The techniques you learn while working for Casimira Vacanze can also be used on your island. It could be the perfect opportunity to renovate your home! And if you offer the inhabitants of Casimira a chocolate holiday, you could intrigue them and incite them to visit the archipelago. Then one day, you might even go so far as to renovate the houses of the inhabitants of your island!
