In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, time mirrors real life because the game syncs with your system's internal clock and calendar. That means if it's 2 PM and sunny in the real world, it'll be the same in your game. This cool feature makes the game experience more immersive, as you'll see day turn to night, seasons change, and even celebrate real-world holidays with your adorable animal neighbors!

Just a heads up, time in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is exactly like real life. It uses your console's clock to make the game's time. So there's no speeding things up - a minute in the game is a minute in the real world. If you're impatient, some players change their system's clock to skip forward or backward, but I think it's more fun to play it as intended.

Time travel's not just for sci-fi! In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can 'time travel' by adjusting your Switch's clock. Want to skip to tomorrow? Go for it. But watch out, it can mess with in-game events.
