How does time travel in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

The first thing to know when playing Animal Crossing is that the temporality of the game is linked to the date of the console. If on your console it is April 05, 2020 at 15:28 p.m., then it will be the same in your game! Each day lasts 24 hours, and for the most impatient, it can be very long to wait until the next day, for the novelties!

Indeed, some buildings are installed the day after they are announced, so it can be restrictive to have to wait until the next day to access them. To counter this, a tip exists since the first opuses: advance the date of your console to change the day! This can also allow you to change the season, going directly from March to September for example. Beware, however, of weeds that will blanket your island with such a big time jump. This technically well known is called the " time travel "!
