Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally here. As of the 20th of March 2020, we can finally dive into the wonderful world of escapism that only Nintendo's slice of life game can truly deliver. So, grab your Nintendo Switch and hop online... Actually, wait a minute. As with most Nintendo games - even its mobile offerings, like Mario Kart Tour - access to Ronnie Rando, Arbitrary Anne and friends is gated behind a friend code or dodo code system.
So, we here at Pocket Gamer have a solution for you. Especially those who are truly embracing the spirit of adventure. We've built this post to give you a chance to gather a great list of new friends to play with.
Of course, there are other ways to have others play on your island. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has console-sharing mode when you have multiple users on the same device, however, everybody will - at present - have to bundle onto the same island... which certainly destroys the thrill of exploring a new land. Otherwise, there is a local play option where one person hosts and others can ping in.
As it turns out, there is. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons there are also Dodo Codes, which are new to the Animal Crossing franchise. With this, you won't need to add other people as friends in order to have them come and visit your island - which is great if you're incredibly popular like us.
In addition to this, some people have set up 'trade areas' near their airports, so that people can only enter the island if the resident player allows it.
At this point, you can grab the five-digit Dodo Codes in Animal Crossing by opting to not invite from your friend list. You can also share those below, but be aware that you're in a comment thread and so responses may not be immediate.
