While Animal Crossing: New Horizons players tend to be united in their love for the game, if there's one area in which players vehemently disagree, it's on the topic of time travel. Time travel is a practice in which players adjust the Nintendo Switch's internal clock in order to jump ahead in time and gain access to things that they shouldn't yet have access to. Nintendo has taken strides to prevent players from accessing the game's holidays early, but it seems that there's little they can do to stop time travelling altogether, and it's resulted in some strong disagreements in the fan community, as a result!

It's a fair point: why not take your time?
I don’t get why people time travel in Animal Crossing.— Joey Bizinger (@TheAn1meMan) March 22, 2020
Like, why would you try to speed run a game that doesn’t have an ending????
Seems a bit extreme, to be honest.
Just wanted to let you guys know, if you time travel in animal crossing, you go to hell when you die— CircleToonsHD (@CircleToonsHD) March 21, 2020
Personally, I like my tent.

This is a good lesson in general.
Reminder: Animal Crossing is not a race or a competition!! It's okay if people are "ahead" of you. It doesn't matter if people time travel. Take things at the pace that works for you and just enjoy everything this game has to offer.— Squhde 🦑 (@SquhdeTTV) March 21, 2020
Whatever you do, don't spoil the game for others.
It's okay to do your time travel shenanigans in animal crossing, I fully support playing the game how you want to. But please don't come to me with your week 3 stuff that you got on day 2, I'm not interested.— Etce (@etcesona) March 22, 2020
