Get an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Starter Guide from My Nintendo

Get an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Starter Guide from My Nintendo North America Europe NA EU reward rewards

A reward has popped up for users of My Nintendo in Europe and North America alike. It’s possible to get yourself an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Starter Guide. The guide costs 75 Platinum Points, and it’s a digital PDF that you can print at home. That means that you’ll need to get some high-quality paper and/or a laminator if you want to make this snazzy.

The blurb for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Starter Guide explains that it will help you get settled on your island getaway. It collects tips, basic controls, and a little help on choosing your island. It also covers how you can make the most of the NookPhone’s apps. It amounts to 25 pages of information, which is excerpted from a larger 432-page Official Companion Guide published by Future Press.

If I’m honest I’m incredibly disappointed that this New Horizons Starter Guide isn’t a nice little physical reward. Considering the number of hours that I, and many others, have put into that game, I think more people would jump on this reward if it were something from Nintendo that we could hold in our hands. Although, North American My Nintendo users have gotten used to receiving strictly digital rewards in recent years, and 75 Platinum Coins is inexpensive.
