Yep, you sure can backup Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Thanks to a July 2020 update, players now have the ability to backup their island's save data through Nintendo's cloud service, given you have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Just go to the game's settings by hitting the '-' button on the title screen, and Tom Nook will walk you through the rest. It's a real lifesaver if you've invested hundreds of hours into your island and don't want to risk losing everything.

Short answer: Yes, but you need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. So if you're serious about protecting your island paradise, it's worth considering getting that subscription!

Honestly, the cloud backup feature is a game changer. I accidentally dropped my Switch in the pool (don't ask), thought I lost my 500+ hour island for good, but I was able to restore everything thanks to the backup. Make sure you enable it!
