With the launch of Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch a few years ago, Nintendo released the Nintendo Switch Online (Free) companion app on iOS and Android. This app has various services for specific Nintendo games and lets you voice chat in Nintendo Switch games. Since launch, the app got support for Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Today, game-specific services for Animal Crossing: New Horizons are available in the app alongside the game’s release on Nintendo Switch. Watch the trailer for Animal Crossing: New Horizons below:
NookLink lets you scan custom designs from the Nintendo 3DS Animal Crossing games to use in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It also lets you view the status of Best Friends in the game and send messages through your smartphone. This is available within the Nintendo Switch Online app right now. You can link it with the Nintendo Switch game easily as well. It is worth noting that this app still isn’t available all over the world yet. If you’re on iOS and the app isn’t available in your region, you need an App Store account for a supported region like USA to download it. Download the Nintendo Switch Online app here on the App Store for iOS and here on Google Play for Android. Have you bought Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
