Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ paid DLC, Happy Home Paradise, is now available to download from the Switch eShop. It offers a whole lot of new content to enjoy, but Nintendo has warned fans of some pesky bugs that can occur under certain conditions.
The problems occur when trying to remodel a resident’s home while your airport’s gates are open – as long as you avoid this for now, you shouldn’t encounter any issues. Here’s Nintendo’s full statement, including a promise to release a patch to fix the issue later this month:
“Animal Crossing New Horizons players who own the Happy Home Paradise DLC may experience gameplay bugs if they visit Resident Services and ask to remodel a resident’s home while the gates at their airport are open.
We recommend players to not attempt to remodel an island resident’s home while the gates at their airport are open. As long as the airport gates are closed, you should not encounter these gameplay bugs when remodelling residents’ homes on your island.
If you encounter these gameplay bugs, please end your play session, close the game and re-launch it. Your save file will not be affected. We’ll share more details soon, and a patch to fix this issue will be released this month. We apologise for the inconvenience.”

The Happy Home Paradise DLC is available now either as a standalone purchase from the eShop, or as part of the new Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.
