At the very beginning of your holiday on the desert island of Tom Nuka in Animal Crossing: New Horizons players will be asked to choose the location of their island. And which island should you choose in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? We’ll give you a hint.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Island – which island and hemisphere to choose

Before you can fish for free and catch bugs, you need to choose the location of your island. This is the decision that you will have to make during your conversation with Timmy and Tommy.

Then you will be given four different maps of the islands to choose from. They are different in the place where rivers and ponds can be found on the map, as well as in locations such as the Resident Service building, as you can see in the image below.
The good news is that there is no right or wrong island to choose from. The one you have to choose depends entirely on your personal preferences. Do you want the river that passes through the center of the map, or the one that is a little more deserted?

Or, perhaps, it is important for you to position yourself as it is an important part of the gameplay in the early stages of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Which hemisphere to choose

Soon after, players will be asked which hemisphere they want to place their island in. If you want the weather and seasons on your island to match the real world seasons in which you live, you just need to choose the hemisphere in which you live.

If you want to spend an Australian winter with tarantulas and scorpions bustling around your island in the heat of mid December, you should choose the southern hemisphere. For those who prefer the more ‘traditional’ seasons, choose the northern hemisphere.
