How to speed up text in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Despite this, the fact that some staple characters like Tom Nook and Blathers start to repeat themselves can have you wanting to speed things up a little bit. That’s before even considering the text boxes that pop up each and every time you interact with an item like a workbench; so, for the sake of your sanity, here’s what you need to know about how to speed up text in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

How to make text go faster in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

  • When a text box is presented and the text begins to scroll in:
    • Press and hold the “B” button on your controller
    • When the down arrow appears, press “A” to proceed
    • Repeat the above as many times as necessary until the interaction is complete

Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to outright skip over interactions if you’re that way inclined. Speeding up text in the manner outlined above is the only way you’re going to get back to experiencing Animal Crossing: New Horizons gameplay more quickly.

If you’re playing with a single Joy-Con, then be sure to remember that your button mappings will automatically change and pressing “B” won’t serve to speed up  Animal Crossing: New Horizons conversations. In order to minimize confusion, however, the function will remain linked to the bottom face button on both the left and the right Joy-Con.
