In Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH), you can choose to play with other people from around the world.
You can either visit someone’s island or allow other players to visit your island.
When it comes to strangers on the internet, the best way to facilitate online play is by sharing Dodo Codes.
Here’s how you can get your Dodo Code in Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH).
Go to the Dodo Airlines
To get your own Dodo Code to share to others, go to the Dodo Airlines. Speak to Orville and tell him you want visitors.
Get your Dodo Code
He’ll ask you if you want local play or online play. Choose online play if you’re inviting strangers or people far away.
Next, choose “the more the merrier!” if you wish to invite people not on your Nintendo friend list.
Orville will then give the Dodo Code to you.
This code will expire if you leave the game, or if you ask him to close the gates. It’s a one-time thing and you’ll need a new code if you switched off the game.
To get people to join your island, you have to tell them the Dodo Code. Be careful of who you invite as they may take your dropped items, your fruits, or run over your flowers.
How to get other people’s Dodo Codes
If you want to join strangers’ islands, you need their Dodo Code.
The best way is to go to a forum / social media group on Animal Crossing or go to Twitter and search for the hashtag #dodocode.
Plenty of people are using the hashtag daily. Just make a request or heed someone else’s request.
Why visit other islands or allow visitors?
Many people love visiting other islands to see how others decorate the island and get some creative ideas.
Most of the people looking to join islands or allow visitors are actually thinking of exchanging items.
They’re looking for different fruits, different furniture, DIY recipes or even special NPCs (e.g. Flick or Celeste).
Regardless, enjoy your visit or have fun getting visitors!
