We’ve heard how Animal Crossing: New Horizons will soon receive its last major free update, but what you may not also know is that the Happy Home Paradise expansion to the game – which arrives on the same date (November 5) – will be the game’s “first and only” paid DLC content.

Nintendo elaborated on this in the following statement to IGN:

“Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise introduces a new gameplay experience where the player joins the Paradise Planning team and helps make their client’s dream vacation home a reality.

“It’s a great update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and offers a distinctive and different gaming experience. Therefore, it made sense to include it as the first and only paid DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”

While this will be the one for paid DLC in terms of updates – there will probably still be some “minor” patches released in the future (after the arrival of the last “major”) to fix bugs, bugs and more.

It is worth noting that DLC will also be available to NSO ‘Expansion Pack’ subscribers. What are your own thoughts on Nintendo ending paid DLC support for Animal Crossing: New Horizons soon? Leave a comment below.
