There is no in-game option to restart New Horizons. However, you can delete all save data on the Switch to start fresh. Please follow the instructions to do so.
|1||Go to the Switch Home Screen|
|2||Select “System Settings”|
|3||Go to “Data Management”|
|4||Choose “Delete Save Data”|
|5||Select Animal Crossing: New Horizons|
|6||Select the profile who's saved data will be deleted|
First, press the Home Button on the Switch to go Home. The Home Button is the small round button found underneath the right joystick.
From the Home Screen, find the Settings Icon from the bottom right side of the screen.
From Settings, scroll down on the left-hand column until you find Data Management, then select it.
After selecting Data Management, scroll down on the right-hand colum. Find Delete Save Data from the bottom of this list.

After choosing Delete Save Data, select Animal Crossing: New Horizon from the list of games.
After selecting the game, it will ask you which profile will have the save data deleted. Choose Delete Save Data for [Name]. This will complete save data deletion.
Take note that you will need to delete all profiles to have clear save data to be able to restart the game.
Once you have successfully cleared all save data, start the game again to see Timmy and Tommy. Restart your character name and appearance, as well as the island layout and name.
If there are any special furniture or DIY items you want to keep, you might want to leave them on a friend's island first by visiting them online. This will allow you to carry at 40 items at most, if you have the last pocket upgrade. Then, when you have restarted your game, you can get them back.
If yoiu have been planning to restart the game for a while now, save the recipes you are collecting. Do not learn them, but instead leave them on the ground on a friend's island, which you can pick up and learn later on.
