Hi

I have two switches. I purchased my son's switch lite when we upgraded him to switch full (so I guess i paid twice, *sigh*)

So I created a fresh island on that switch. I figured I'd use it to learn/mess with terraforming and whatnot... a scratch island if you will. But I want to rush through the growing pains. Any way to get items from my well developed island to my scratch island without an intermediary?

Nintendo doesn't make it easy to purchase games you've already purchased (digitally).

Thanks

Paul

if you're using the same copy of the game between your switches, you unfortunately won't be able to transfer items between the two. if the secondary switch ever detects that the primary is playing your digital game, it'll immediately boot you out of the game so connecting between the two is impossible. and ofc if you only have one physical copy only one switch can use it at a time. I'm not sure if you can connect if you have both a digital and physical copy of the game

the cheapest and easiest option is unfortunately finding another person and giving them the items from your main town for them to bring to your secondary

I was hoping about an sdcard method or something. Thanks though. I do know the limitations. If I did purchase a cart version of the game, I could play both separate and travel between islands.

Maybe when the price comes down next year
