You can't create a different island per user/account.Once you have created an island on your console, all users have to share it.Good luck if you have two or more kids...Nintendo got away with forcing us to buy one game per user for years and years with Pokemon and Animal Crossing, and now they want us to buy one CONSOLE per user. They had the "excuse" of lack of memory space with cartridges, but with the Switch, there is literally NO GOOD REASON to do that but CORPORATE GREED.That kind of practice shouldn't be allowed.Seriously, shame on you Nintendo!
I have 4 children that will be playing this game and the amount of arguing that has went on today is ridiculous. My 16 year old girl has to share a world with her 9 year old brother. Now all the kids want their own switch lites. Nintendo I will not buy all my kids switch lites and then 4 animal crossing games so they can have their worlds. I hope an update is coming to fix this madness. I had to make myself mayor then divide the map into 4 sections so each player would have their own area. Then I have to threaten my 6 and 9 year olds life if they touch anyone else’s stuff.
You can only make 1 island per game/per switch. If you have multiple children, only one can be the leader at a time. Whoever named the island can never leave it, so it's essentially "theirs". There is no split screen and all other players must follow the leader and only the leader can enter buildings. Of course, my children aren't happy about this and they were so excited about this game. If you only have one switch and one copy of this game but more than 1 child, it's kind of lame. Definitely experiencing buyer's remorse.
