|1||Start the Game with another user|
|2||Receive your tent and NookPhone|
Other users on your Nintendo Switch can join your island as a new villager, all they have to do is start up the game in their own user account.
Additional players will then answer Timmy and Tommy's questions. These include the name, birthday, and appearance questions.
However, unlike the first player, additional players don't need to answer the question,
What would you bring to a deserted island?
A single Nintendo Switch is limited to one island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
So if a different user wants to have their own island, they'll need a separate Nintendo Switch and a separate copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is required.
Additional players will arrive on the island and receive a Tent and NookPhone. They can take a DIY Workshop with Tom Nook to start crafting items.
Keep in mind that additional players can't progress most of the required story goals after completing the DIY Workshop.
Added players will have a sandbox game experience without set goals unlike the first or original user who'll have to accomplish goals to gain progress with their island.
Although the first player receives DIY Recipes as part of the story, additional players must purchase the Recipes for themselves.
They're available for sale in Resident Services or Nook's Cranny, depending on if Nook's Cranny has been built yet.

|2||Follow dialogue to delete save data|
Press the - Button on the game's title screen to access game settings.
You'll be taken to a screen with Tom Nook, where you can change your settings in the game!
Select Save data, then Delete resident registration. to remove the current user's save data.
Once you erase or delete a player, you won't be able to bring them back, so be sure to think twice before deleting a player!
Keep in mind that the original player who came to the island acts as the Resident Representative for the island, so their save data cannot be erased from the Settings menu.
If you want to erase the save data for the first player, you'll need to delete the save data of Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a whole, which will also delete all the other save data together with it.
With New Horizon's new feature, players on the same island can now play together. You can play with up to 4 people on local multiplayer using Party Play!
