After Nintendo gave the Animal Crossing New Horizons island to the player, the player became the owner of the island, including changing the name of the island.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Island Project


Everything about island activities requires players to explore and discover on their own. You need to learn how to earn Animal Crossing Bells fast, how to earn 1000 Nook Miles Tickets fast, how to collect rare ACNH Items and more on the island. Before laying out your island, you need to have a list of global plans. The list needs to include Bell Voucher, Animal Crossing Items, ACNH Nook Miles Tickets, Room wallpaper, ACNH Clothing, ACNH 2.0 Items, and more. Trust me, be patient with the planning and layout and you will see results. First, let me tell you how to change the island name.

The only way previously to change your island name was to reset the entire thing. You may be wondering whether the remake will affect the existing landscape planning of the island. If it affects, this is a bad way. Well, there is a way, although not so official, that will still change your island name. if you were to change island names, Nintendo would need to change the name with each of your friends. As easy as this may sound, Nintendo would not bother to do the same or spend resources for this. Nintendo would not even remove the users who delete their accounts from your list. This is the reason why you can change neither your island nor the villager’s name.



The first step towards implementing this change is to save the game and extract the save file into your computer. The change cannot be made from your Switch directly and you would need a Windows PC to do the same. After this, download the New Horizon Save Editor (NHSE). This is the main application that will help you to change your island name. The moment you open the application, you can already see a column titled ‘Town name’. This would mean Island Name in context to New Horizons. Delete the pre-existing name and change it to whichever name you want to keep. Voila! You have successfully changed your Island name in New Horizons.


The island name should be symmetrical with the island landscape. In this way, hearing the name can tell the overall layout of the island and attract more animal villagers to the island. After ACNH 2.0 update, 9000+ ACNH Items are sold in the ACNH shop. According to the classification of items including DIY Recipes, Room Design, 2.0 Villagers, Art, Housewares, Animal Crossing Bells For Sale, Wallpapers, Music, Fossils, and more. Some Animal Crossing New Horizons items are also available from Nook's Cranny, ABLE Sister, Nook Shopping, and Acbellsbuy. the Nooklings Shop is also regularly replaced with new items. Prepare Animal Crossing Money in advance to buy your favorite items.
