Absolutely, you can transfer your entire Animal Crossing: New Horizons island from one Nintendo Switch to another! It's not a straightforward process, but Nintendo has a specific Island Transfer Tool app you need to download from the eShop. Just make sure both Switch consoles are updated, and you're good to start the transfer.

Hot take but... just start a new island. The transfer process can be overly complicated and might suck the fun out of it. Plus, starting fresh is half the fun of Animal Crossing!

Yes, but it's a bit of a headache. You need the Island Transfer Tool and a lot of patience. Make sure both consoles have the game and are connected to the internet.

You definitely can! Did it last month when I upgraded to the new Switch model. Just follow the steps for the Island Transfer Tool on Nintendo鈥檚 official website. It was easier than I expected.
