I mean, the existence of multiple accounts on Switch probably should make it so you're able to have separate islands.

But this is literally how every Animal Crossing game has worked and I'm not sharing my Switch with anybody so I don't really care.

Don't like the series so I don't understand how much this matters. Seems like another lazy move by Nintendo though.

Also I really don't know why this news has really flared up in the past few weeks; it's been known since last year.

This doesn't bother me, but I could see how it could upset people who share their console with the family or roommates or whatever. My answer would be "then share the island" but I understand that's not how a lot of people play Animal Crossing.

What has made me roll my eyes with this news is seeing Tweets saying things like "Well I guess I'm not buying this game" or "I'm not interested anymore," like how in the world is this the dealbreaker? You want multiple islands, you're told you can only have one island, and your answer is "FINE, I won't have ANY islands!" The logic makes no sense to me at all.

To be fair, some people will defend anything Nintendo does (Byleth is a great choice for SSBU DLC, Pokemon Shield isn't lazy & greedy, etc) while the other side will never be satisfied (Switch doesn't run everything at 1080p/60fps?!).

This seems to be a significant issue between people sharing the game but otherwise not a problem.

Considering I'm unlikely to get this on release and also that whenever I get it I'll have my own switch anyway, I... don't really care.

I'm getting my own Switch.

Not because I'm upset about the one island thing, but because I like the AC Switch.
