Animal Crossing: New Horizons QR code NookLink over 500 QR code designs Nintendo Switch Online

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is here, and according to the site traffic we’ve been receiving since last Friday, you guys are well aware of that. The game had a spectacular launch in at least the U.K., where it had the most successful physical launch of any Switch game except the combination of Pok√©mon Sword and Shield, and Japan, where it reportedly had the all-time largest physical Switch game launch. Now fans are busy exploring, discovering, and designing. For that last part, NookLink and QR codes are a big part of the process. Toward that end, YouTube channel Nerd Attack! has compiled over 500 QR code designs for Animal Crossing. Grab your phone and take a look!

For obvious reasons, the video moves at a brisk pace. To slow things down so you can actually capture a QR code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can of course pause the video. But you can also slow the video down to 0.25 playback speed if YouTube’s interface / timestamp bar is getting in the way of capturing the code.

And if you’re reading all of this thinking, “Wait, what am I supposed to do with all these codes?” well, we have a guide for that. Take a look at our Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide about importing custom clothes and art and using NookLink to access QR codes.
