In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can have up to 8 playable characters (or villagers) per island. Each one needs a separate user profile on your Nintendo Switch. This means you, your family, or your friends can all have a villager living on the same island paradise!

Just 1 character... if you're a true solo gaming purist and want to keep your island to yourself. But seriously, up to 8 people can make their own villager on a single island if they've each got their own user profile on the console.

As of my last playthrough, you're looking at a max of 8 characters per island. That's plenty of room for making it a bustling community or a tight-knit group of friends. Each character gets their own house to decorate too!
