Simple! Head to your airport and talk to Orville to get started. If you’re acting as the host, select “I want visitors” or, if you want to visit a friend’s island, choose “I wanna fly!” instead. He’ll ask a few questions and then you’re off!
Connecting with other players online requires a Nintendo Switch Online membership, or alternatively you can play via local wireless with people nearby*. Up to eight people can party together on one island at the same time.
Fun things to do with friends!
So, you’ve made it to your friend’s island…but now what? If you’re stuck for ways to play together, here are a few things to get you started:
Trade items – Everyone loves presents! Hop on over with some spare items, fossils or DIY Recipes to either trade or just share. Don’t forget that your island’s native fruit always makes a nice gift to someone who doesn’t have that fruit yet, or you can sell it for more Bells at your friend’s Nook’s Cranny store than you would on your island.
