This guide explains how the in-game language is determined and how to change the language in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch. Learn whether it is possible to change the language during the game.
The language for the game is chosen automatically based on the Nintendo Switch Language Setting when the game starts up. As such, the game is supported in every language available on the Nintendo Switch Language menu under System Settings.
The language setting can be changed any time by changing the Nintendo Switch's language setting. However, keep in mind that it is necessary to restart the game in order to change the language.
Press the Minus (-) Button and select Save and End.
|1||Press the Minus (-) Button during gameplay.|
|2||Select “Save and end.”|
|3||Press the X button on the Switch Main Menu to close the software.|
Next, change the Language setting from the System Settings menu.
|1||On the Switch Main Menu, select System Settings -> System -> Language|
|2||Choose the language you would like to play in.|
|3||The Nintendo Switch will restart.|
|4||Start Animal Crossing: New Horizons.|
If you've played the game previously in a given language, and change the Nintendo Switch Language setting to anything other than English, a confirmation screen will appear the next time you start the game with warnings displayed in both languages.
If you're ok with the language displayed, you can simply proceed through these screens as normal.
Now you're ready to play the game in any language you want! Because you can change the language at any time, there's no fear even if you want to try changing to a language you don't speak.
For example, if you'd like to try changing the language to Japanese to check out the original version of the game, feel free to do so any time.
