Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Recommended Posts

I’m really torn about buying physical or not. On one hand it seems a bit pointless on the other hand I’m expecting the inside of the case to look incredible.

 

Can I use a physical cartridge on two different switches, having a different island/save on each?

I’ve decided against watching the direct. I want to discover all the little details and collectibles for myself. If it was a few minutes then I probably would, but half an hour is going to spoil so much stuff.

As if I needed convincing, this looks absolutely tremendous. Some well needed but still very welcome QoL improvements and it just...looks *lovely*.

No cloud saves. Still in the dark about transferring saves from one switch to another...anyone know?

You can't.

looks lovely, and at the same time you can see the path to madness with all the 'optional' customisation things on offer

 

key takeaways I got were 

 

  • up to 8 players on a single island, can be 8 users for the same console, but only 1 resident per user.
  • no cloud backup but a 'special' service to recover data on faulty consoles
  • bit of Minecraft lite style action to sculpt the land/terrain
  • all the usual Nook shopping with visiting sales people plus a whole crafting system too
  • no axes/spades for visitors unless you make them best friends

So you’d have to do an entire system transfer?

It was in the direct. Cloud saves are coming, they can recover saves (suggesting cloud saves ARE there, you just can’t restore them), and you can’t transfer your save as it’s tied to the Switch. But, I expect you CAN move your character to a new Switch/island.

 

Anyway, wasn’t going to watch but did and fuck me - there is so. much. stuff.

Also if I don't get Cherry The Goth Red Dog as an island friend I'm going to riot*

I think they said cloud back up - in the form we expect that to mean - isn’t supported. You know what I mean. You’d have to contact them to get it done.

 

What about if someone wants to do a system transfer, not just the save data. That will work, right?

They said it was coming, but not at launch.

The terraforming tools are going to produce so many island dongs.

I heard it as something like “we won’t support cloud saves but we will support server recovery after launch in special cases”.

 

Hopefully you’re right.

They explicitly say no built in cloud backup - there will be a single use server backup feature available some time after launch

I’m going to mortgage myself up to the hilt with several extensions and have a dedicated gym in my house.

That's for you to decide! :)
