  3. Loading times take insanely long or is it just me?

Today i booted up my game from the title screen on my second day and it took like 4 minutes for the game to start, and when i went to open my mailbox there was another loading screen, for opening the mailbox, it lasted like 10 seconds.

Is this normal or is it just my game that's doing this?

Is your game digital? It sounds like your SD card could be starting to fail.

Nope, I've definitely noticed this too. The load times are pretty abysmal in this game, and the cutscenes for joining/leaving are honestly pretty obnoxious. It's especially bad in this game because not only is the join/leave cutscene longer than the previous games, but it's also more frequent because many more people can be in a single town at once now than the previous games

The load times are a bit long. I wouldn't say 4 minutes to start up, but its noticable.

This is why I decided to get a digital copy of the game. The Switch's internal storage is the fastest option, while game carts are the slowest. For me, it only takes around 40 seconds to fully load from boot to title to island. After seeing some pre-release videos of the load times and watching some speed comparisons for other games, there was no way I was getting the game cart version of this game.

My game loads in about 30 seconds. Installed on the SD card, I think.

Yeah, maybe i exaggerated, but it did take really long.

My biggest issue is the loading when opening the mailbox for some reason.

Also im playing on cart.

Opening the mailbox i thought uses internet connection. You might want to go into airplane mode when doing that, or check your internet connection.
