Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Use NookLink to Perform Reactions

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 9:33 am

You can now express yourself in a new way!

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players can collect dozens of different Reactions, which are special animations that they can perform to show off their current mood, pose for a picture, and more.

Players have always been able to perform their desired Reactions at any time using in-game controls, and now, they have another (potentially easier) way to perform them.

Nintendo has updated the NookLink area of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile application with a Reactions menu, which allows you to trigger Reactions in New Horizons using your iOS or Android device.

Here’s how this works!

Open the Nintendo Switch Online mobile application on your iOS or Android device, and then tap Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This will load the “NookLink” menu.

Tap “Reactions.”

You’ll see your most “Recent Used Reactions” at the top of the screen, along with a full list of all of the Reactions you’ve unlocked down below.

To perform a Reaction in New Horizons, all you have to do is double tap on a Reaction in the app (or, you can tap a Reaction and then tap the “Send” button at the bottom of the screen). So long as your game is connected to the internet, your in-game character should perform the Reaction you chose!

And that’s all there is to it! Have fun sending Reactions in a new way!
