Animal Crossing New Horizons, the latest installment of Nintendo’s casual social sim series, is finally out for Nintendo Switch and introduces new features that have not been in previous titles in the franchise. One of those features is the ability to fast travel, so here is how to fast travel in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to Fast Travel in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Fast travel has never been a function in an Animal Crossing title before, most likely because the whole point of the game is to walk around your town, explore, and talk to your neighbors. Since Animal Crossing New Horizons is more task-heavy than previous titles, the feature is welcomed as an option.
To fast travel, take out your NookPhone and select the app “Rescue Service.” The service will take you back to your house for a price, which isn’t surprising considering you are living on an island ran by Tom Nook.
The fast travel option works a little differently than other games, as it is more of a taxi service than selecting points on a map to warp to. It also only warps your character back to your house or to the Resident Services tent. This is a good feature to make use of if you inadvertently find yourself stuck in a corner of the island with no way of moving forward.
So in short, here’s how to fast travel in Animal Crossing New Horizons:
- Take out your NookPhone with the ZL button.
- Select Rescue Service app and accept.
