Nintendo explains what happens to Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise if you unsubscribe from Switch Online + Expansion Pack
It’s been a busy day for Animal Crossing: New Horizons with both free and paid content revealed. Happy Home Paradise is the new DLC, and as a bonus for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, this can be accessed at no extra cost.
But what happens to the Happy Home Paradise DLC if you unsubscribe from the service? Nintendo provided the following statement to Eurogamer:
“Players can still continue to access certain things they have unlocked in Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise on their main island, including adding counters, partition walls, as well as adding ambient lighting and soundscapes, even if their access to Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise is suspended. However, it will not be possible to visit the archipelago if players lose access to the DLC. To be able to visit the archipelago and take on requests of designing vacation homes again, you will need to purchase the DLC separately or renew the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.”
Of course, the Happy Home Paradise for Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be purchased without a Nintendo Switch Online membership. It will have a one time fee of $24.99.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise launches on November 5. Read more about it here.
