A bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons multiplayer

If you own Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you may have already tried to visit a friend's island, thanks to multiplayer. For this, you must go to the airport, and do the same if you want to return home. Corn a shortcut exists to return, allowing you to go much faster than going through the airport: the "-" key on the console !

We are you strongly advise against using this shortcut, because it has for some time been causing many bugs among players. Indeed, if one of the players on the island is in the dressing room or in the middle of a dialogue, using this key to leave will cause multiplayer to crash. Players visiting the island will then be taken home, and if any trades or purchases have been made on the host's island, these will automatically be cancelled.


It is also the use of this shortcut that caused the total removal of a player's game. We therefore recommend that you use the airport to leave, thus avoiding any crashes related to the bug!


@everyone
WARNINGS
A new very serious bug has been discovered. Serious of the kind: you delete your game!!

I had already noticed that leaving with the - key while someone is in the dressing room or in dialogue could cause the multiplayer to crash.

We hope that Nintendo will fix this bug soon, as it has done for the previous ones. The next update is certainly April 22 for Earth Day, the problem may be corrected at that time!
