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 Pokémon 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.
