A charming paid-for addition to New Horizons that doesn't feel exploitative even as it comes off the back of one of the best free updates in recent gaming history.

And I do intend to keep the fun going for as long as I can because I truly enjoy what it is I’m doing as an employee of Paradise Planning. As I said above, there is nothing I like more in Animal Crossing than fidgeting around my house and changing the layout on a whim. That’s all you’re going to do in Happy Home Paradise, and for me, that’s more than enough to keep me logging in every single day.

‎Happy Home Paradise is the answer for those who feel fatigued by Animal Crossing New Horizons. It has a rhythm and a premise that stimulates creativity and generates satisfaction more quickly than the base game, but it is still a relaxing experience that each player will make their own, practically inexhaustible and full of charm and surprises.‎

Happy Home Paradise gives you the easiest job in the world. Creating holiday homes for various Animal Crossing characters is about as pressure-free as it gets when you're given a clear direction, a curated set of furniture to choose from, and the knowledge that the customer will love whatever it is that you do. There's no risk of a Changing Rooms disaster here. It's another avenue to express yourself in New Horizons, just don't expect much challenge, critique or need to think too far out of the box.

Unlike the main game, you don’t have to take it slow. The game just encourages you to do so. This may be a simple addition to the game, but it’s also a valuable one. You’re given new tools in a new setting, with new rules that spread to the whole base game. Rather than a coat of paint, this DLC is more like an extra room added to the ground floor. Whether you want to build a couple houses or a whole map full of them, the Happy Home Paradise DLC has you covered.
