We are a few hours away from the release of New Horizons. We will be playing this new life simulation game on March 20.
Today we are going to share with you a very important update related to New Horizons. According to the director, Aya Kyogoku, and producer, Hisashi Nogami, the players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons won’t be able to use cloud saves to protect your deserted island’s progress, but why?. They believe that the game economy could be abused if they allowed that option. However, we must remember that Animal Crossing: New Horizons itself can make jumps in time without penalizations. However, the director and producer think this is not as serious as manipulating save data.
Remember that the game will allow you to recover the saved data through a function that will be launched in the future. It is a special transfer system that will avoid cheating, according to Nogami.
In an interview with IGN, Aya Kyogoku, the director of Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained ” Cloud saving would conflict with Animal Crossing’s economy by getting items or money as many times as they want. Trying to buy items or money is something we also do in real life, and we also want users to understand that a lot of work is necessary, just like in real life. By working hard, I think you create value and love for that specific item that you have earned. And at the same time, by creating an environment like that, hard-working fans will see that they don’t do it in vain and we can support those players who dedicate that time and effort. We have created a game where users can play and enjoy the title without having to change the console clock. We hope that players will share that experience with their friends and family, and also improve the communication they have with them in real life.”
Furthermore, the producer explained “The Switch hardware is restricted when special data like Animal Crossing data is transferred because it is a bit complex. To remedy those concerns, we are trying to create a transfer system that is special to Animal Crossing.”
