Animal Crossing, shared island across two switches?

I couldn’t find an answer to this specific question either here or google.
I have one switch and one copy of ACNH. I share an island with my girlfriend, I would like to buy her her own switch and copy of the game. Can we continue to share an island across two switches, or would the resident transfer create a new island? Basically we enjoy building the island together and would like to play at the same time on our own switches without the limitations that the current two player system has.

You would have your own islands, one island per switch. So someone would have to start again.
