Heads up, if you're only moving your character and not the whole island, it's a different process. You've gotta use the 'Resident Move' feature in the game settings, not the Island Transfer Tool. Learned that the hard way after a couple of hours of confusion. Make sure you're picking the right option for what you need!

Transferring your Animal Crossing data is pretty straightforward! If you're moving your whole island to a new Nintendo Switch, you'll need to use the Island Transfer Tool. Download it from the eShop on both your old and new Switches. Boot it up and just follow the on-screen instructions. Just make sure both consoles are connected to the internet and have enough battery life. It's like moving to a new island without the hassle of packing!
