Animal Crossing: New Horizons Ver 2.0.0 patch notes are finally here. While players have been digging into the update early (thanks, Nintendo!), we now have the patch notes on-hand that we can read. As players might expect, these notes cover the free update. What’s interesting is that there doesn’t appear to be too much information about the Happy Home Paradise DLC.
