I purchased a copy of the game for myself and my switch lite. We will be resetting the version on the regular switch however there is a villager I want to bring over to my new island first. Am I able to go over to the island and invite them over before the 3 new plots are decided upon?

kk slider has to come to your island first. You need to have 3 stars and then he will come
