A bit of good news, bad news with Animal Crossing: New Horizons has come in. Gamekult had an interview with Aya Kyogoku, director of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and producer Higashi Nogami, as well as some interesting information. Check out the details below.
Cloud records not being supported
Higashi: New Horizons will not be compatible with cloud backups to avoid manipulating time, which remains one of the founding concepts of the series.
Aya: Given the number of maps and numbers available, we obviously think that New Horizons will be compatible with amiibo, but I can not tell you more about this compatibility at this stage of development.
