The title would seem to recall the previous chapter for 3Ds Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Indeed, the NPC Casimira comes precisely from that game, but the similarities end there: if in fact HHD was considered a title rather static e repetitive (as well as being one standalone not connected with other Animal Crossing chapters), the DLC of the hugely popular Switch game (of which we have already written a review and a guide of the new 2.0 update) adds some pretty interesting features to the main game.

The dear raccoon will not be alone: ​​with him there will be an otter, Casimira, who will tell us that he plans to open an agency for holiday houses and that she needs someone to give her a hand.

Furnishing Vacation Rentals – Animal Crossing Review: New Horizons DLC Happy Home Paradise

The main feature is precisely the ability to furnish the holiday homes of the villagers. Just tell Casimira that you want to work, then look for a client on the beach (or in the structures, which we will talk about later). Once you have found a possible “buyer”, you will start talking to him to understand what he wants in his holiday home: usually, the villager has two or three obligatory furnishings that we will have to insert by force, for the rest we will have White paper on the whole.

This very high customization is the real strength of this DLC: no constraint of materials as in the main game, only our creativity as a limit. It will in fact be possible to furnish both theexternal that theindoor of the house, with plants, insects and furniture (everything will unlock as you progress through the game). House after house, the number of furnishings available will also increase (including those exclusive to the DLC).

Exclusive furniture, walls and columns – Animal Crossing Review: New Horizons DLC Happy Home Paradise

In our review of the Happy Home Paradise DLC of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a small analysis of the new furniture and knick-knacks cannot be missing: they will in fact be available for purchase in the agency’s headquarters, and will change every day (as in Timmy and Tommy’s shop). The currency on the island is the poki, which after a few furnished houses it will be possible to convert into stars. Poki will be given to us every time we complete a structure, furnish a house or renovate it. In addition, Gilbertuccio will give us the scheme for the column, the walls additional and i separators, which we can also use in our home on the main island.

The furnishings introduced in this DLC can also be found in the form of DIY scheme daily in a bottle to be found on the beach (as on the main island, or on the islands visited thanks to Nook miles); these furnishings will also include the necessary materialsedera e i bright mosses, which will grow daily on the agency’s island.

The structures and the story mode

The story mode of the DLC is relatively short, considering that there is no daily limit of houses that can be furnished. Occasionally Casimira will tell us that it will be available to furnish one on the agency’s island structure to attract tourists. The facilities are all over five (the school, the restaurant, the coffee shop, the hospital and the boutique) and will be introduced as we proceed with the vacation rentals.

Only the colors of the exterior will be customizable, but the interior will be totally at our disposal. The furniture used in the structures will then be available to furnish the houses. Once the structures are finished there will be a special event which will sanction the end of the story mode, but we will still be able to go on with the holiday homes, even those of the villagers of our island.

Let’s sum it up!

This DLC doesn’t offer just one new story, but this same story ties in perfectly with the main game. Renovating the villagers’ houses (internal and external) allows us to have the island of our dreams regardless of the inhabitant and the new furniture, walls and columns are furnishing elements that will become essential for our home and ours Island. The new “social” channel ofAcademy of Fine Homes, then, it allows us to share the holiday homes that we have furnished with the other players, thus being able to take inspiration from them and perhaps inspire them with our creations. The only flaw could be there speed with which this DLC takes place, given the absence of a limit of houses that can be furnished daily.
