This question already has an answer here:
Okay, so I bought Animal Crossing a few days ago and my brother decided to start playing it before I did, and now he's the mayor and I'm not. I have progressed with the other account that's not a Mayor, not knowing that I wasn't the mayor, and now I just found out that I can't do anything. Is there any way I can transfer the data from one character to another? Can I at least change the name of the first character?
