I'd like to change the system clock on my Switch to affect another game I’m playing, but my SO and I are playing Animal Crossing New Horizons together. We've just bought large amounts of turnips, and we don't want these to spoil. As such, I’d like to avoid time traveling in Animal Crossing.
Our Switch is currently set to Synchronize Clock via Internet. I'm not sure how or when Animal Crossing determines the time has changed. I'm thinking it might work out if I do things in this order:
- Change the time
- Play the other game, save, quit to home screen.
- Set the Switch back to Synchronize Clock via Internet. Ensure the time is correct.
- Load up Animal Crossing, which hopefully believes nothing happened.
I'm not really in a position to test this myself right now. When I tried researching on my own, I only saw the negative impacts of time traveling in Animal Crossing by itself, but I'm not trying to time travel in Animal Crossing.
