Before you’ve even arrived on your deserted island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ll be asked a number of questions by Timmy and Tommy. From your name, birthday, the island layout you want, the hemisphere it should be in, and allowing you to customize your character, they’ll ask you: “If you could only bring one thing with you to a deserted island, what would it be?“
‘If You Could Only Bring One Thing’ Question in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Now, Timmy and Tommy will give you four options to choose from. These are:
Question: If you could only bring one thing with you to a deserted island, what would it be?
- A Sleeping Bag
- A Lamp
- Some Food
- Something to Kill Time
This suggests that whatever you choose here will be waiting for you when you arrive on the island. As such, you might be wondering just how useful a sleeping bag is, or how much food you’ll get if you go for that one. So what answer do you pick?
The answer is, you can pick whichever one of these that you like, as it’ll make no difference to your starting setup in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
You’ll still end up with the same items, it’s just a pointless question to get you in the island getaway frame of mind. In fact, Timmy and Tommy even make light of the fact that it was a ‘hypothetical question’ anyway. Those cheeky raccoons!
That’s not the only thing that Tom Nook has you covered with when you arrive on the island, as you’ll also be given a tent for your temporary residency.
That’s all you need to know when it comes to answering the ‘If you could only bring one thing to a deserted island’ question in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
