Animal Crossing: New Horizons received its big winter update a couple of weeks ago, and its companion NookLink app has now gotten an update of its own. Nintendo has added a handy new Catalog function to the mobile service, letting you more easily track all the items you’ve obtained in the game.
Through the newly added Catalog function, players can quickly look up furniture, clothing, and other items that they’ve acquired in New Horizons. The feature displays information about the items, including which color/design variants players have obtained, how much the item costs to purchase from Nook’s Cranny, and whether or not it can be customized. The Catalog function also has a section displaying your 20 most recently acquired items in the game.

NookLink is part of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app. In addition to allowing voice chat for compatible games, the app offers game-specific services for a couple of other first-party titles. Splatoon 2 players can use the SplatNet 2 feature to track their stats, see map rotations, and order in-game items, while the Smash World service for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lets players view and share screenshots and videos.
