Nintendo confirms gameplay bugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC, hotfix released later this month


Paradise Planing is now open for business with the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise DLC! Unfortunately, fans encountered a few bugs while redesigning villagers’ homes on their main island.

Nintendo is aware of the errors. They issued a tweet thread via Nintendo of Europe describing the root cause of these bugs, a temporary “workaround” and the promise of a fix released later this month.

#AnimalCrossingNewHorizons Players who own the Happy Home Paradise DLC may encounter in-game bugs if they visit Resident Services and ask to renovate a resident’s home while their airport gates are open.

We recommend that players do not attempt to renovate an island resident’s home while their airport gates are open. As long as the airport gates are closed, you shouldn’t encounter these in-game bugs while renovating the homes of residents on your island.

If you encounter these gameplay bugs, please end your game session, close the game and restart it. Your backup file will not be affected. A patch to resolve this issue will be released this month. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. For more information:

Since Metroid Dread turned out to have a major bug last month, and Nintendo released a fix about a week later, there’s a good chance this issue will be fixed in Happy Home Paradise very, very soon!
