What are your favorite new features in Animal Crossing: New Holdings 2.0 and Happy Home DLC?

Animal Crossing: It’s been about two weeks since New Horizons’ major 2.0 update and Happy Home Paradise DLC were released.

Even two weeks of brewers, gyroids, home design, and even the return of one Mr. Resetti, we all had the opportunity to settle into the world after 2.0. So far?

No one is shy because I go first.

It would be too easy to say that my favorite part of the update is the entire Happy Home Paradise. That’s crazy. But new design tools (partition walls, counters, ceiling decorations, soundscapes, accent walls) really awakened my love for the game’s interior design.

Previously, it was all about using tricks to get the desired effect. A simple panel acted as a partition wall, and the desk became a kitchen counter. Now it’s much easier to create interesting and diverse rooms using official tools.

It’s fascinating how small changes lead to big ideas. Creative people are already discovering new ways to use new items and tools. Make glow-in-the-dark stickers transparent windowpanes, use partition walls and accent walls to create gardens and balconies, and combine ceiling decorations with floor furniture to make it look like there are curtains and lights inside. In this video you can see some new tricks such as:

And I’m writing this, and I really like the fact that many of the new 2.0 features are designed to make it easy for people to get back into the game, as they can bend the rules.

Beautiful island ordinances allow us to quickly clean those weeds (and there is always a weeding service across the island of Leif if it really gets worse), and Katrina’s friendship improvement is me. Allows you to recover from the time you spend. Harv’s Island gives you easy daily access to Saharah, Kicks and Redd so you can quickly catch up with everything you missed. Kapp’n boat tours give you access to seasonal islands and mop up all your recipes. And the material I couldn’t get.

Yes, all of this costs money, but with the Nintendo Switch Online app, you can quickly track the price of turnips and quickly become a millionaire. Maybe. I wish you success.

But with lots of choices, Animal Crossing: What’s your favorite new addition to New Horizons? Either with DLC or free updates? Let us know in the comments!
