We share a switch, and we have New Horizons on it. What I am wondering is how come when I start a new game under my profile, I end up on his island. Is there a way to uncouple myself from his island and make my own? Do I have to buy my own copy?

It's one island per switch, the only way to have your own island is to have your own console.

Is it possible to buy a digital and physical copy and use the same switch :?

I mean, you could do that but you'd still be on the same island so it'd be a waste of money unless you have two switches.

Seriously makes no sense.

Also makes no sense that there isn't a LOCAL SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP OPTION.

Why have all games forsaken what worked so well in video games -_-

Nope. The island isnt tied to the game, its tied to the console. As it stands currently, you need 2 consoles to have 2 islands. You can buy as many copies of the game as you like, but it won't change the island.
