I'm new to AC:NH! I have a question about going to other islands and inviting new residents. I went to one yesterday and invited the guy I found there, but he hasn't turned up. I have now been to a second island, and invited another guy, but I don't want to leave the island yet in case I haven't done it right. How do you get the new residents to come to your island, and how long does it take?
are these the mystery nook miles islands? assuming you're far enough along in the game, the empty plot should say SOLD on it as soon as you get back to your island
if you're earlier in the game I think it works a bit differently. I can't say for sure off the top of my head the exact sequence of events, but I know during the parts where you have multiple empty plots in town, you can invite multiple villagers at once to fill them all up
Visit my dream towns!
