Nintendo's taken a few extra measures in its latest Animal Crossing game to prevent time travellers from spoiling the experience for others, but there are obviously some players out there who still prefer to play the game this way. If you head over to YouTube or search Animal Crossing on social media, you'll no doubt come across an island with all the bells and whistles.

The former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé has now been dragged into the debate – with a fan on Twitter recently asking him if he time travelled (a reference to the sometimes controversial style of play in Animal Crossing: New Horizons). Reggie knew exactly what the comment was referring to, and replied with the following tweet:

In previous iterations of Animal Crossing, time travelling could result in broken relationships, a lot of weeds in your town, and villagers asking where you've been. Nintendo has combat this playstyle to some degree in its latest entry, by patching in seasonal events such as Bunny Day.
