This is a guide to adding or deleting players in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch. Learn how to play on a single save file with more than one player and what to watch out for when adding players.
List of Contents
If you've added more than one user to your Nintendo Switch, they can join your island as a new villager. Choose that user on the game's start-up screen and start the game.
Additional players will answer Timmy and Tommy's questions. These include the name, birthday, and appearance.
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. You'll need to play with additional players together on the same island.
If you want to play on a different island, both 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 undergo a DIY Workshop with Tom Nook to begin crafting items.
Note that additional players cannot progress most of the required story goals after completing the DIY Workshop. It can be said that added players can enjoy a sandbox game experience without set goals.
Although the first player receives these DIY Recipes as part of the story, additional players must purchase the Recipes. They are available for sale in Resident Services or Nook's Cranny, depending on if Nook's Cranny has been built yet.
When you want to delete a Player, you can do so from the game's Settings screen.
When you've erased a player before, you won't be able to bring them back, so be sure to think twice before deleting a player.
The original player who came to the island acts as the Resident Representative for the island, and 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 other players together with them.
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!
