Can We Have Multiple Islands ?

Only One Island Between Accounts

One Island Between Accounts

Although you have different save files, all the accounts will be playing on the same base island. This means shared resources in the island and the very layout of the island will be the same.

Cannot Share Storage

Cannot Share Storage

Houses have a private storage that only the owners can access. This storage cannot be accessed by other accounts playing on the island.

Can Visit Mysteyr Islands Instead

If you want to go to another island, you can jump into a mystery island tour instead. It's a small deserted island that you can visit by spending 2,000 Nook Miles for a ticket!

How To Make Multiple Accounts

How to Create Multiple Accounts

If you want to create another villager for your island that you can control, you will need to create another profile in your Nintendo Switch first.

How To Create Another Profile

How to Create Another Profile

2Select "Add User" in the Users tab
3Choose whether to create a new one or import

Create A New Save By Opening ACNH

After creating the account, open Animal Crossing: New Horizons with that account. This will then create a new save file for that account.

Differences Between Accounts

Difference in Progression

There is a difference between the first and subsequent accounts upon starting the game. It's not that significant of a difference since you will still get the tasks of earning miles and creating tools.
