I'd just like to say that I, at the very least, appreciate that Nintendo is taking their time with this game and wanting to make it good instead of rushing it out. They understand how excited fans are for this and are really working on perfecting this as much as they can, and that in itself has me even more excited!

Some info for those who haven't been following news!

1) You can only have one island per Nintendo Switch system. If you enter the game from a new account on your system, you will load up the same island.

And though there is a travel theme to New Horizons, Kyogoku confirmed you can’t set up a tent on a friend’s island. However, Kyogoku told IGN you can make up to eight playable accounts on one Nintendo Switch and they will be able to live on the same island. You cannot have multiple islands, however.

2) Auto-save will be implemented. Some people are worried about having this since it makes it harder to roll back an action if you made a mistake (like accidentally selling something or telling a villager to move that you wanted to keep), but we don't know the details of how often and when the game will auto-save. Could be every few minutes or every x number of actions. So an immediate reset if you make a mistake could very well be possible.

3) The game will have various different skin tones (no need to keep getting a tan to maintain a different skin color), and hairstyles will be gender-neutral. Enough said. :D

4) You can choose where on your island you want your villagers to live!! So no more mystery house plots popping up and destroying those flowers.

Ugh, I'm so excited for all of those improvements! They definitely are taking some of the best of everything (even Pocket Camp) and rolling it into this game! :catheart:

We definitely should have mini-PC-hangout sessions once New Horizons is officially released.

Even though we've seen so little of it, I've never wanted a game as badly as I have this new Animal Crossing, so it's going to be a long couple of months, but I'm glad they delayed it to make sure it's as good as can be. And while Pocket Camp and Happy Home Designer weren't the best of games, I'm glad they're taking some of the best parts of them, and adding them to New Horizons.

We definitely should have mini-PC-hangout sessions once New Horizons is officially released.
+1 to this! Now that they've expanded multiplayer to 8 people, it would be fun to get groups together to visit each other's islands once and a while.

Huh, the auto save thing makes me wonder if Resetti will be given a role in NH. :o

I'm personally not particularly fussed by the auto-save.... or at least, that's what I would say, up until I would make a mistake and then want a do-over. x.x I guess we'll see later once more info is revealed on how often the game actually auto-saves.

But yay gender-neutral hairstyles!! Love this addition for sure. :o

Apparently he's been fired but might show up elsewhere.

https://mashable.com/article/mr-resetti-animal-crossing-new-horizons-laid-off/?europe=true

In an interview with Mashable during E3 2019, Animal Crossing: New Horizons' project lead Aya Kyogoku officially announced that Mr. Resetti lost his job at the Reset Surveillance Center due to the upcoming Switch title's new auto-save function.

"I think this will be a positive thing for the player, because in New Horizons you can stop playing in the middle of your game and it'll still save," says Kyogoku. "But unfortunately because there's no necessity to reset the game or reset button on the Switch, Mr. Resetti had a hard time. He was laid off from his position."

But, folks, there's still hope for the most hilarious, beloved, and hated figures in Animal Crossing history.

"We also believe that Mr. Resetti is looking for a new job after his layoff. So please look forward to that," Kyogoku teases, potentially hinting that he'll assume a new role.

Okay so, wow. He’s had a hard time and got laid off. That like, hit me in a real way. They could have just said he retired or something, but no, the man is struggling. Why Nintendo?!?!

Thank god for being able to decide where villagers live now. Was dumb that as mayor we couldn't have that level of control in NL.

Rest in spaghetti, Mr. Resetti but he'll get a different job anyway

Really happy with most things that have been said thus far; especially that we'll be able to tell villagers where not to put their house. They definitely listened to fans on that one!

Something I'd like back from Wild World days though would be the ability to tell villagers to stay when they're at the boxing up stage. It's been a lot harder to maintain favourites since they changed the moving function.

So some bad news - your save file won't be backed up even if you have Nintendo Switch Online.
With the introuduction of cloud saves and automatic saves, how will you handle Mr. Resetti’s interventions?

HN : New Horizons will not be compatible with cloud backups to avoid manipulating time, which remains one of the founding concepts of the series.
Not happy about this one, particularly with the reason. Founding concept of the series? It was always possible, it just meant Resetti yelled at you. And I don't care if some other AC player does that - it's really not a competitive series. =/ Bleh.

Yeah I'm kinda surprised that they're not offering cloud saves :\ I'm also not sure how I feel about the whole one save per Switch thing they have going on versus one save per profile.

Bit upsetting for me also. Why have a cloud save feature to begin with if we can't use it for any of the bigger Nintendo titles (Pokémon, Splatoon, now AC)? Not that I'm usually not or anything, but guess I'll have to be extra careful with my system. :x This is pretty much showing that hackers/cheaters won the game. That and time traveling has no effect on anyone else's town, AC isn't a competitive game or anything..

I think this is the game that's actually going to make me spring for Nintendo Online, especially since some of my friends who have never expressed interest in Animal Crossing now want to try this title.

So I'm definitely looking forward to some PC hangout sessions too!
