Nintendo Shares More Information About The Multiplayer In Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Nintendo Life

Animal Crossing New Horizons

Nintendo’s been drip-feeding us information about Animal Crossing: New Horizons for some time now, and the latest information about this upcoming release comes from its Aussie web page, on the official Nintendo Australia website.

While we already know the game will support up to eight players and four residents simultaneously, a rather sizable blurb at the bottom of this page touches on the finer details about the user limits online and per console.

*Up to 8 players with registered accounts on a Nintendo Switch console can live on one shared island, and up to four residents of one island can play simultaneously on one console. Please note: only one island can exist per Nintendo Switch console, irrespective of the number of user accounts registered to or copies of the game used on one console. One Nintendo Switch and one copy of the game is required for each unique island. Alternatively, up to eight people can play together on one island via local wireless or online play. Local wireless play requires one console and one copy of the software per player. Internet connection required during online play. To use online services, you must create a Nintendo Account and accept the related agreement. The Nintendo Account Privacy Policy applies. Some online services may not be available in all countries. Online play requires paid online membership.

So, just to clarify, eight players can live on one shared island, and four residents of one island can play simultaneously on a single console. Adding to this, eight players can play on a single island via local wireless or online play.
