If you know someone with Animal Crossing: New Horizons who doesn’t own the DLC yet, it would be a perfect holiday gift for them! The DLC allows players to go to a new string of islands to become home designers. This will give players a lot of fun design missions to do and give players access to new features and items they can bring back to their island as they play. Digital download only. Players must own Animal Crossing: New Horizons to play Happy Home Paradise.
