Why Purchase a Nintendo Switch Online Account?

ANCH - Online Multiplayer - Play With Friends

If you want to play online multiplayer with your friends, a Nintendo Switch Online account is absolutely necessary.

You also have access to more content like the Happy Home Paradise DLC if you purchase the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack! You get to have fun being an interior designer for your villagers, plus you have a ton of new items and reactions!

What Can You Do Online?

One Account for each Switch User

Keep in mind that a Nintendo Switch Online membership connects to only one Nintendo account.

If there's more than one user on your Switch planning to play online with friends, you'll need to purchase one account for every user, instead of just using one account per system.

Should I Get the DLC or the Expansion Pack?

ANCH - Happy Home Paradise DLC

Keep in mind, players who get the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise DLC by itself will be able to play it whenever they want.

While those who pick the Online Expansion Pack can only play it for as long as their subscription lasts. You won't be able to play the DLC if you're not able to renew your subscription once it expires.

But worry not! The save data for the Happy Home Paradise DLC is stored within the console. So, it's definitely possible to continue playing where you stopped after getting a subscription to the expansion pack again or getting DLC itself!
