This Animal Crossing: New Leaf Glitch Lets You Duplicate Items

Tiny Cartridge has found a glitch that I've heard lots about recently, as it allows you to duplicate items in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The method is not exactly what I'd call "safe", but that's how it usually is with exploitations like this.

To quote Animal Crossing Community's Heatran:

What you do is, drop the items off, then the host ends the game. As it saves, [the visitor turns] off the wireless via switch on 3DS. Bam. Duplicated. Cloned.

While I've not replicated this myself — too wary of messing up my save files — I've received a number of reports from friends who have verified the glitch. Tiny Cartridge says that the timing is tricky to nail, in case you're going to try to replicate this. I wouldn't, but! The glitch exists, and it might explain why sometimes you and a friend mistakenly end up with the same item.

    I want my AC to look like the picture above that would be amazing.

    Or just order them through the catalog at the T&T Mart? This seems like there is way too much chance of seeing Resetti...

    Reminds me of the old duplicating Pokémon trick back in Red/Blue. Turning one side off after comms have stopped but save is about to happen.

    ACNL is already driving me mad, and i've only been playing 2 days!
