New details about Animal Crossing have been steadily coming out in the run up to the game’s launch. Nintendo recently confirmed on its website that New Horizons will support the seldom-used Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app. While the game will not make use of Switch Online’s save backup function, Nintendo will let NSO subscribers recover their New Horizons save data under certain conditions.
