The most important part of the update was the ability to swim and dive, which in turn forces the game to add more fish and bugs to collect for every player’s enjoyment along with extended game time.

Lastly, the game now offers cloud transfer of save data, enabling you to have your island be migrated to another Nintendo Switch unit. This will now make it easier if you own several units such as the 2 versions of the original Switch and maybe a Lite. With more convenient ways to play, loyal fans are sure to find themselves back into the routine of making their island the best it can be!
