I'm beyond exciting to get the new paid DLC, but I don't really have an interest in say a yearly Nintendo Online plan. I just don't use it enough.
I saw a comment on another thread sharing that if you DON'T have Nintendo Online in addition to the paid DLC, you are unable to use the new items/furniture/etc on your island. Is this true? Or am I misunderstanding?
Hi, I believe you misunderstood. I’m assuming what they meant to say is that if you have the Nintendo Online plan and DON’T buy the DLC, once the plan expires you only get to keep some of the features. Or at least that’s what I’ve heard from several different sites. If you pay the $25 for the DLC outright, then you get to keep it forever. You definitely don’t need to pay twice. And anything that isn’t part of the DLC can be obtained without paying for the DLC either way.
