Lottie's introduction in Animal Crossing: New Horizons may have been a hint at the paid DLC

Lottie is an Animal Crossing villager who was primarily known for her role in Happy Home Designer. Along with other characters, she was introduced in New Horizons during the Direct, and she brought the paid DLC with her.

With the Happy Home Paradise feature, players can design dream vacation islands for characters on their island. Players can design either vacation homes or utility items for their characters, depending on their characters' wants.

Players can design a space for their characters to fit their aesthetic. To do so, players can alter the season and time on their island, apart from making changes to their character's home.


The new paid DLC has offered features such as polishing items. Usually, polishing items only enhances their appearance. However, in some cases, like that of flowers, polishing can add new effects, such as adding butterflies to the flowers.

Players can add new furniture items to their collection as and when they play the expansion. They can even alter the furniture present on their client's island if they feel that a new one will better suit the dream island's theme.

Overall, the Happy Home Paradise paid DLC seems to be a promising new addition to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and players cannot wait to get their hands on the feature.

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise paid DLC will be available for $24.99 from October 29 (preorder) and will be available in the game from November 5, 2021.
