Nintendo shares more info on Animal Crossing: New Horizons' multiplayer

It's a party!

Nintendo shared a few details on Animal Crossing: New Horizons' multiplayer component during their Nintendo Direct and Treehouse Live segments, but it turns out there's some more info to go over. IGN managed to grab these multiplayer-specific tidbits from Nintendo.

- you can’t set up a tent on a friend’s island.
- you can make up to eight playable accounts on one Switch and they will be able to live on the same island
- you cannot have multiple islands
- the Switch Online app should be compatible with Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Wait, so what exactly is the multiplayer then? I really enjoyed the way it was done in New Leaf. I hope it is not one person at a time Gamecube style.

I believe it's been mentioned that there will be couch multiplayer of some kind, and obviously there will also be online and the ability to travel to other players' islands.

It was in the Treehouse Live segment. 8 pco-OP. Can live on one island, 4 can play couch co-op, 8 can play online co-op.

Somewhat off topic but I wish Smash Ultimate is like this. Trying to unlock all characters, espically when the CPU is tougher, on each account is such an effing chore

Hold up. So I’m limited to 1 island per switch, not 1 per user save file!?! So what if my 4 or 6 year old decides to undo my island setup while I’m at work? If so I’m really hoping for those econo-switch SKUs for the kids during the holidays. I love my family and Animal Crossing.

Sounds like the original Animal Crossing when multiple players shared the same Memory Card.

Maybe they put multiple save files for that.
