Animal Crossing: New Horizons Adding Cloud Saves And More With New Update (VIDEO)
While Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have been enjoying taking a dip in the waters on a hot summer day, the second wave of the summer update is inbound, and it includes quite a bit. One of the biggest reveals, of course, being the ability to backup your island in the cloud and restore it should anything happen.
Taking to Twitter, Isabelle, who is currently in control of the Animal Crossing account, revealed what players can expect from wave 2 of the update. Not only will island backup and restoration be available, but there will also be a fireworks show each Sunday throughout August. In addition to this, players will be able to travel in their sleep with the help of Luna, venturing off to islands far away. Check out everything that will be new with the upcoming update in the video below:

💾 Island Backup & Restoration
— Isabelle (@animalcrossing) July 28, 2020
With the ability to backup and restore islands, players no longer have to worry about what would come of their progress should anything happen to their Nintendo Switch. That’s not all that is planned for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, of course. In a separate tweet, Isabelle revealed that data transfer is also planned for later this year. That’s right! No more having to stick with one Switch. When that feature will arrive is yet to be determined.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently available on Nintendo Switch, with the second wave of the summer update arriving on July 30th. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
