Maybe you have already noticed, but it will be in the night from Wednesday to Thursday Animal Crossing: New Horizons a new Winter-Update which will introduce a lot of new content such as hairstyles, emotions, holidays and a warehouse expansion (we reported). One innovation that might raise some questions is this Data transfer function.
The data transfer function was recently explained in detail by Nintendo on a separate page. Of course, we don’t want to withhold the new details about this function from you. Because there is soon two types a data transfer:
Transfer of an entire island
With this option you transfer an entire island with all its inhabitants to a new Nintendo Switch console. This means that everything you’ve ever achieved in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be played on a new console. To use this feature, you must have access to both Nintendo Switch consoles. It is the only way to secure the island if you have not made an island security beforehand. You can find information about island security in Animal Crossing: New Horizons here.
Transfer of a resident
If you only want to transfer one resident to a new Nintendo Switch console, then not only the resident, but also their house and storage space will be transferred to a new console. The inhabitants of the original island are not taken along. If an island is already saved on the new Nintendo Switch console, the new resident will move into the new island, but if there is no island on the new console, a new island will be created with the resident as the island’s founder.
How do you like the implementation of the new function?
